2024 Sea-Doo RXP-X 325 Review

It’s safe to say that the 2023 RXP-X Apex 300 and the new 2024 RXP-X 325 are identical, except that the latter features a more powerful, 325hp engine.

Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty and talk about this revamped Rotax power source in detail!

Sea-Doo RXP-X 325 Engine and Propulsion

There’s no question that the most noticeable improvement on the RXP-X is its massively upgraded 325hp engine, baptized as 1630 Rotax ACE 325.

Thanks to its outstanding performance, this engine is the most powerful stock jet ski engine in the marketplace. Its closest competitor is Kawasaki’s 1498cc, inline-4 jet ski engine rated at 310hp.

The predecessor of this power mill was the 1630 Rotax ACE 300, which was a 4-stroke, 1630cc, SOHC, 300hp triple engine. This unit was introduced in 2016 and remained as the power source of high-end Sea-Doo models through 2023.

For the 2024 model year, the Canadian manufacturer upgraded this engine, which increased its power up to 325hp.

Are you wondering where the extra 25hp comes from?

In a nutshell, the upgrades of the 1630 Rotax ACE 325 engine are as follows:

  • Higher performance: 325hp @ 8250 RPM
  • Redesigned fast-spinning supercharger (larger intake, smaller impeller)
  • Revamped ceramic thermal-coated pistons
  • Thicker valve rockers
  • Lowered crankcase
  • Less restrictive intake valve train and air intake system
  • o2 sensor in the exhaust manifold
  • Increased REV limit (8000 to 8250 RPM)
  • New fuel pump
  • Improved engine management system
  • Revamped spark plugs
Another important note is that this 325hp Sea-Doo engine is not compatible with the useful iDF debris removal system. Therefore, the RXP-X 325 can only be ordered without it.

Aside from the above, the Rotax 1630 ACE 325 shares most of its features with the 1630 ACE 300, including:

The propulsion system of the RXP-X 325 has been carried over from the RXP-X Apex 300 without any significant changes.

Except for the revamped polished impeller of the newer model, they share the same axial-flow, single-stage aluminum jet pump.

Engine power is transferred from the engine towards the pump via a direct drive shaft. Unfortunately, it’s still sealed by the notorious carbon seal ring, which requires careful attention.

This new 325hp engine is only available on the RXT-X 325 and RXT-X 325 this season. However, it will more than likely find its way into the GTX Limited 300 in next year’s model!

Sea-Doo RXP-X 325 Hull

The RXP-X 325 inherited its hull and top deck from the RXP-X Apex 300. This platform is officially labeled as “T3-R” but is often referred to as simply T3.

While the RXT and GTX lines are built on the much more stable 3-seater ST3 platform, the smaller and more sporty T3 hull is reserved for the RXP series.

Designed with buoy racing in mind, this shell offers industry-leading cornering abilities.

Regarding specifications, the RXP-X 325 measures 130.6 inches in length, 49.2 inches in width, and 44 inches in height.

The dry weight of the ski is 776 pounds with the sound system and 756 pounds without it. In contrast, the 2023 RXP-X Apex 300 weighed 780 pounds dry, meaning that the RXP-X 325 is lighter than its predecessor.

The capacities of the ski have remained unchanged; it can carry 400 pounds or two riders and 18.5 gallons of fuel.

Its storage capacity is 40.6 gallons including a 2.56-gallon glovebox and a 37.78-gallon standard front storage bin.

Just like the RXT-X, this ski is also available with Ice Metal / Manta Green and Fiery Red dresses.

Sea-Doo RXP-X 325 Features

The RXP-X 325 comes standard with a wide range of race-intended features, which are as follows:

Besides the above, other standard features of the RXP-X 325 are as follows: Besides its revamped power mill, another exciting feature of the RXP-X 325 is its hydraulic steering damper. This system was revealed on the APEX 300 and has been carried over unchanged to the new 325.

The main idea of this revolutionary steering system is to reduce excessive handlebar feedback in choppy water conditions. Its adjustable design also allows you to choose from three different positions.

While Sea-Doo’s suspension seats were not really popular, this handlebar damper seems to be more successful.

The Tech Package also comes standard on this ski, including the integrated BRP sound system and the 7.8-inch panoramic LCD screen.

The latter comes with many useful functions, including:

  • Music
  • BRP Connect
  • Weather
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Speedometer
  • RPM
  • Clock
  • VTS
  • Fuel consumption
  • Fuel autonomy
  • Speed statistics

Sea-Doo RXP-X 325 Performance

The T3-R hull paired with the redesigned 325hp engine ensures an outstanding performance.

Factory tests showed that the RXP-X 325 can accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 3.4 seconds!

This is no surprise since the new engine increased the power-to-weight ratio of the ski from .384 to .418 hp/lb. (without a sound system).

Its top speed is electronically limited to the “industry-standard” 67 mph, which can be increased into the 70-85 mph range with some aftermarket mods, for closed-course racing only, of course.

While the 325hp engine power offers arm-stressing accelerations, its nimble hull design allows the RXT-X to turn on a dime.

When the 2012 RXP-X 260 debuted with the new T3-R hull, Jeff Hemmel claimed it to be the “tightest-cornering PWC” ever built.This statement is still true more than a decade later since the RXP-X 325 is still based on the same T3-R hull.

It features the unique “Shark Gills” on its mid-section, which also contribute to its outstanding high-speed control.

Thanks to their amazing performance and handling, the RXPs have always been the #1 choice of many racers and performance-minded buyers. We are sure that the latest 325 will not bring shame to her name!

The only drawbacks of this hull are its lower stability and capacities compared to the larger ST3 platform of the RXT and GTX series.

Due to its larger dimensions, deeper deadrise, and much more stable design, the ST3 outperforms the T3-R hull in rough water conditions.
