BRP has launched the new 2006 line-up of Sea-Doo® watercraft featuring four-stroke engine technology across every market segment. First introduced in 2002, Rotax® four-stroke engines are now ubiquitous to the global Sea-Doo watercraft line-up. New to every 2006 Sea-Doo model except the 3D® is an all-new Digital Information Center. Its sleek, easy-to-read gauges feature all the information you need, all at once in a fully digital display. The 2006 Sea-Doo watercraft line-up promises something for everyone and offers an exhilarating option for every type of rider.
NEW GTI™ SE AND GTI™ – The New Entry– Totally redesigned for 2006, the GTI SE and GTI entry-level watercraft feature the new 130 HP Rotax® 4-TEC engine combined with an entirely new deck and hull design for a sleek, stable and smooth ride for up to three passengers.
In addition to their CARB (California Air Resources Board) 3-star certification, the GTI SE and GTI come standard with Sea-Doo technologies previously only available on higher-end luxury performance models. These include the Closed-Loop Cooling System, O.P.A.S.™ (Off-Power Assisted Steering) system, Sea-Doo Learning Key™, D-Sea-Bel™ sound reduction system, T.O.P.S.™ (Tip Over Protection System) and D.E.S.S.™ (Digitally Encoded Security System). The new bellwether in the recreation segment was designed for a wide variety of uses for the entire family and include features like a removable storage bin that is 100% watertight and holds up to 10 gallons (40 liters), a deep and oversized 2.5 gallon(9.5 liter) glove-box, as well as a host of other accessories to further customize your ride.
RXP™ Returning in 2006 is the ever-popular RXP, the two-passenger musclecraft that started the 215 HP intercooled, supercharged revolution. With its race bred handling and 215 HP, the best-selling two-passenger watercraft since its inception inspires those who seek the ultimate in power and precision. This undefeated time-time Musclecraft Shootout1 winner returns virtually intact with an arsenal of Sea-Doo technologies including an electronic Variable Trim System (VTS™) to defend its territory and two color options: Viper Red Metallic or the all-new Maya Gold.
RXT™ – Musclecraft Performance For Three-Passengers – Making its big splash last year, the RXT is back with the industry-leading 215 HP intercooled, supercharged 4-TEC engine.
With all the features and technologies you would expect on a standard three-passenger watercraft, the industry’s only true three-passenger musclecraft is ready to show everyone that being big doesn’t stop you from being quick out of the hole or precise in the turn. Its arm-straightening acceleration and assertive handling easily accommodates a day on the water for 1, 2 or 3-up riding, while the Sea-Doo Learning Key™ will keep your mind at ease when novices are learning to ride. Choose between the all-new Maya Gold or Viper Red Metallic, then show all the other three-passenger watercraft on the water who’s the leader of the pack.
GTX† LIMITED – The 2006 GTX Limited sacrifices nothing. We took our industry-leading 215 HP, intercooled, supercharged 4-TEC Rotax engine and combined it with virtually every technology available from the Sea-Doo Learning Key to the O.P.A.S.™ system. Loaded on 18 additional accessories specifically designed for the GTX Limited including a waterproof cell phone case and built-in, hand-held GPS, and packaged it up in a new Starlight Blue / Titanium or Pearl color scheme that really makes an unparalleled statement on the water. The GTX Limited returns in 2006 as the most luxurious watercraft on the market, and with 215 HP under the hood it’s everything you would want in a watercraft and then some.
GTX† SC / GTX† – Comfort, Luxury and Power Options –
The 2006 GTX SC and GTX return in similar fashion to last year. With two power options to choose from, the GTX SC comes equipped with the 185 HP supercharged 4-stroke Rotax engine while the GTX has the 155 HP naturally-aspirated version. Both models offer the same Pewter Grey Metallic color scheme, as well as, the same technology and accessory package including the O.P.A.S.™ system, Sea-Doo Learning Key™, Closed-loop Cooling System™, D.E.S.S.™, T.O.P.S.™ and D-Sea-Bel™ sound reduction system. You choose the model that is right for you based on your power needs and the GTX SC or GTX will do the rest.
3D® DI – One Watercraft. Multiple Experiences
– Also new in 2006 is the Sea-Doo 3D DI watercraft. Arguable the most versatile recreational product in the world, the new 3D DI gets a power upgrade and is equipped with the proven 130 HP Orbital§ direct injection 1000-series Rotax engine. All 3D models return on the famous XP® Semi-V hull, giving these nimble watercraft their carving ability. In addition, the 3D technologies include the O.T.A.S.™ (Off-Throttle Assisted Steering) system, D.E.S.S.™, D-Sea-Bel™, Manual VTS™ (Variable Trim System) and the industry’s only Triple Point Steering™ system that provides three different handlebar positions and two start/stop buttons. By far the most unique property of the 3D machine is its ability to change. The Sea-Doo 3D can be experienced in five very unique and different riding modes including: VERT, MOTO, KART, KNEE AND SHOQ.
WAKE – Designed Specifically For Towing and Boardsports
– When they designed the Sea-Doo WAKE model, we went straight to industry leaders and listened to what they wanted in a watercraft. Then we outfitted our GTX platform with a 155 HP Rotax 4-TEC engine, added a retractable high-rise ski pylon, removable board racks, convex mirrors with 32% more visibility and graphics that the wakeboard crowd would have designed themselves. It has a reboarding step, large reboarding platform and class-leading storage for all your extreme activity needs. Perfect for towing wakeboarders, wakeskaters, tubers and skiers, the 2006 Sea-Doo WAKE is the only watercraft in the industry that truly speaks to the younger generation in their own language… fun.
