Video: Jet X Powersports Test Rides RIVA-Tuned 2018 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300


One of the biggest gripes of many of the major manufacturers in the personal watercraft industry is the lack of loyalty that racers often have towards their sponsors. Thankfully, such is not the case with the team at Jet X Powersports and RIVA Racing. The Jet X crew has been tied to the hip with RIVA nearly from the get-go, and a long, successful career of moto and championship wins is all that is needed to keep that partnership going. Recently, several Jet X Powersports racers were given a very unique opportunity to see what RIVA’s skunkwerks had cooking for 2018, and were invited to RIVA’s test lake to try it out first hand.

In a Facebook post a few weeks back, Jet X wrote, “[We had a] great opportunity today to spend time with the world’s best performance parts supplier! RIVA took us to their private test lake and had an amazing opportunity to test the new 2018 RXT-X 300. This ski works really well! Amazing storage with great accessories. [We] love this new beast. What’s an amazing ski! 80mph on this bad boy! RIVA has come through once again.”

Yes, 80 miles per hour, and that was with a solitary ECU reflash by RIVA’s mapping guru, Jesus Garcia. A secondary post by Jet X gave a little more detail on the day, “[We] had a great opportunity to test the new 2018 RXT-X 300 with some RIVA Racing go-fast parts at the RIVA Racing Test Lake. Jay Edworthy, Dave Davidson and Marco Mango really put the ski to the test. What an amazing ski [that] BRP has made. BRP really did their homework and came through with a home run. RIVA Racing has been spending a ton of time to make this ski work. [It’s] simply incredible. Thank you RIVA for all your support and giving us this honor to ride this weapon.”
