jetcycles is right about that 300 engine, not enough power. I had a 440 and outgrew that one real fast. the 550s and 650s are sweet but oneday i want a superjet or kawi 800.
Is that the sxr? What a fine looking ski! What's the top speed of the 800? 650?

650 is a fun ski to learn on with guesstimated top speed of 40+MPH. I absolutely loved my SXR and would guesstimate top speed of 45-50MPH...but it got there a lot faster! Too speed of a standup is rarely used in my opinion, I prefer out of the hole acceleration.

Top speed on a SXR 800 with a lot of mods is only about 59 mph. 2mm overbore, Factory wet pipe, TBM charging flywheel, Advent ignition, Vforce reed cages with reed spacers, aftermarket flame arresters, TDR waterbox, TBM pump cone with blueprinted impeller. It takes a lot of parts to go fast on the water. 59 mph sounds slow, but it rips when you're riding it.

How do they handle compared to a sit down ski?

I'm not even sure how to answer this one. What sit down ski have you ever ridden that you would say "handled" to your liking? Have you ever ridden a built GP1200R or GP1300R? What about any of the two seat supercharged SeaPoo's? Have you ever ridden a Yamaha Waveblaster? Or a Kawasaki X2 that would turn so sharp you could drag the handlebars? Ever been lucky enough to ride a sit down ski that bucks you off when you turn too quickly because the sponsons dig so deep? If you've ever ridden any of those, they're about 1/2 as much fun as a well tuned standup in my opinion. All I can say is riding a stand up jet ski is totally different than anything you've ever done on the water!

Exactly what he said. We are a Seadoo dealer, and the new RXP 260hp is a bad boat......for about 20 minutes. As the horsepower in sit downs has skyrocketed over the years, the top speed is the same. They have been limited on overall speed for a long time. They ride like a big fast sea couch. A 45 mph stand is a 100% more fun at a fraction of the cost. Stand up ski's are making a comeback. I have been riding stand up's since 1985, for the first time in my life you can no longer purchase a new boat from youre local dealer. Google Benelli watercraft and check out there new line of stand up's, formerly known as Hydrospace. Four stroke, 3 cylinder, 180HP. Insane!
