2009 Sea-Doo RXT iS 255
The RXT iS 255 is almost too good to be true. An outrageously powerful 255 hp engine, breathtaking style and revolutionary iControl technology. And keeping it to yourself just isn’t fair – that’s why we gave it three seats.
Our 255 hp Rotax 4-TEC engine is something you truly have to experience to believe. Boasting a mammoth supercharger and external intercooler that ride atop the most horses available on a PWC. Powerful yet efficient, it cranks up the performance to unprecedented levels.
The digital information center's easy-to-read LCD panel gives you all the info you need at a glance. Available with up to 28 functions, including analog and GPS speedometers, compass, suspension gauge, cruise control and slow-speed mode indicators, Variable Trim System gauge and presets, and Learning Key setting. And you can customize your display and save your preferences, so you only see what you want to.
Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) offers a whole new level of safety and control. Now, with the simple squeeze of a lever, you can stop your watercraft on demand. If the watercraft is moving forward, squeeze the brake to slow down. If the watercraft is stopped, squeeze the brake to go in reverse. And because the throttle and brake controls are both on the handlebar, you never have to come out of the natural riding position
The stepped design of the S3 hull creates a low-pressure zone, reducing drag and keeping the hull glued to the water. This improves handling and top-end speed. And its narrow chine and deep-V design stabilize the watercraft. Lateral wave impact is minimized, resulting in very little roll or change in direction. Also, the innovative material that makes up S3 actually reduces the overall weight of the hull by 50 pounds. The S3 is 19% lighter than competing manufacturers’ hulls.
A hinge allows the cut and sew seat to open vertically and provide easier access to the engine compartment. Offers seating for up to 3 persons
Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) brings a new level of precision to every riding situation. Your watercraft now starts up in neutral mode, allowing the engine to run without propelling the craft forward. It makes for easier dockside starts and stress-free maneuverability, even in tight areas. An activity-specific cruise control system lets you customize your speed settings. Set the speed and let the system adjust automatically, while you enjoy an easier ride and better fuel efficiency. And along with iBR, iTC make docking stress-free, with the intuitive combination of throttle, neutral and reverse. Well-placed controls let you keep both hands on the handlebars and both eyes on what you’re doing.
The high performance VTS allows you to adjust the attitude of the watercraft based on rider weight, riding style and water conditions – giving you better control and customized riding characteristics Including 2 preset options.
Intelligent Suspension (iS) allows the hull to move independently of the upper deck, isolating the rider and passenger from the impact of rough water with six inches of suspension travel. So you can ride longer, with greater comfort and control, through all types of conditions. The suspension comes factory-set for sport riding on the RXT iS 255 and readily adapts to fit changing conditions, number of passengers or personal preference. Choose one of nine settings or set it to auto calibration. And do it all on the move, using the rocker switch on the handlebar.
O.T.A.S. monitors the rider's steering input as well as the operational speed and automatically increases engine speed to provide additional power when necessary. This advanced technology continuously monitors engine rpm to determine if the craft is being operated at a low or high speed. If running at idle speed, the system does not engage. If the speed is higher, the system will be functional.
The handlebar isn’t just for the throttle anymore. Now, control of Intelligent Brake and Reverse, Intelligent Suspension, neutral mode and cruise control are all at your fingertips. It’s all completely intuitive. And it’s all designed to let you make changes while on the move, without ever taking your eyes off the water.
The new tilt steering system allows for a customized, less stressful ride. And when you use the tilt steering to move the handlebar up or down, the multifunction digital information center moves with it. So the gauges are never blocked from your sight.
Fold-down re-boarding step provides easier and more comfortable re-boarding in deep water.
Ski tow eye for easy and secure attachment of ski rope.
Adjustable mirrors increase field of view.
