Default sweet

I'd personally like to see an R-1 powered ATV.



Stuff the R-1 motor into a Banshee and you'd scare the stuff right out of you and into your pantaloons.

Default DON

was this put forth by the same publicity firm that touted the YZR-M1 as being "quicker and faster than the YZR-500" ??? we all know what a bunch of BS that was. i will bet my house right this very second that there is no friggin way that this thing puts out "more horsepower per cc" than the Kawasaki Ultra 150 or Yamaha GP1200 monsters. any takers? by the way, compare this thing to the direct injected models, and you can kiss quieter, more fuel efficient and less emissions goodbye

Let's see..."can reduce operating costs by $1000 OR MORE per year"...

My last SeaDoo, I never spent even 1000 per year in operating costs...

Does that mean that they PAY you to ride it???

I look forward to seeing this watercraft...but I must say, this article is propaganda.

Default Yeah !

Well, the Ultra 150 has 123.3 hp/liter, and the GP1200R has 131.8 hp/liter. *IF* the new FX140 has 140hp (hence the name) and is 998cc, like an R1, then it will have 140.3 hp/liter. So yeah, when I find the actual specs for the FX140, I'll take that bet !!!



As for the $1000 savings in operating costs, you would have to use it quite a bit to SPEND $1000 in costs. Hmmmm.

Even if it put out 160HP the Ultra 150 would still kicks it's ass all over the place. That new Yammie is huge...it's a 3 seater. Until someone decides to screw the 2000 65 mph imposed "limit

", the 1999 Ultra 150 remains the fastest boat on the water. Period.

Default Nice, but Honda was first

Honda released info on their 4 stroke PWC last September. They said pretty much the same thing about cleanliness and quietness, not so much about the power, though.



Here's the link to the Honda Press Release:
