After only 25 hours on the LTD I can attest that this is a GREAT machine. I previously had a 2008 GTI130 which I logged 120 hours and it was also a fine machine.
The IBR braking system on the Limited works really well and this PWC is easier to manuever and dock than any other boat or PWC on the water.
The neutral really works well also...you can even "trim" it if the PWC drifts forward or back. The cruise control is excellent, it along with the touring and ECO mode make riding in rough water so easy.
Just set a speed and glide across the waves. The slow no-wake mode is also great. In long harbors you can set it between 4-8 mph. and just move along effortlessly.
I can't see how Yamaha or Kawasaki can even compete with the neat technology Seadoo is offering. I tried the IBR units at the demo days in South Carolina this year and then came home and bought one in Ohio a few weeks later.
Other machines may have higher top speeds but afer you ride for a while you soon realize that top speed probably isn't all that important. On choppy Lake Erie, top speed is something you get to try only occasionally.
