    What is going to happen to the SXR?

    With the introduction of the SXR 1500....the Kommander GP1 with the 1050 and the supposed Yamaha SJ in 2019, where does that leave the SXR? How do you think these new skis will affect the market value of an SXR 800, or even a SXR 1100. I'm looking to build an 1100 for fun, but curious if after dropping about 6k in it if it will even be worth that in 3-4 years?
    It's almost here.....

    Re: What is going to happen to the SXR?

    In my experience, I built skis to satisfy my needs for power or speed without much consern with resale because I would have never started.

    Build whatever you want to afford.
    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    I would never build a 1100 unless your going racing and don't want to get an aftermarket ski or the SXRF.

    #1 you can buy one already built cheaper by the day
    #2 they are not that fun recreational
    #3 modified twin can be awesome

    I sold EVERYTHING related to SXR: twins, triples, and bought 08+ Superjets. Couldn't be happier for rec riding

    intent and purpose are the main factors here. the sxr1100 is perpetually out of gas in a "sunday funday" scenario.

    I've seen a steady decrease in the cost of the sxr800 up here. That could be due to the economy and not the new sxr...

    But the 1500 is definitely what guys are getting for the races up here. The open boats with 1100-1300s will keep up or beat them. Just for a different price tag.

    Personally I think there will just be more classes. Some for two stroke, some for 4 stroke and some mixed.

    The kommander gp1 will change the game for the 4 stroke world and should be interesting to see what it's like during its first race. I'm building a k1r 1200 right now but that might be for sale to get my gp1. Lol

    A for the sj.. Yamaha had said they will wait to see how the new kawi does and decide if they will produce a 4 stroke. I'm hoping enough 1500s sold for them to make the 1050sj a thing in 2019.

    #1 although you can buy one already built cheaper by the day, it may explode randomly because some inexperienced duude built it late at night while he was drinking Bud Light. Building your own skis is fun and half the reward.
    #2 they are not that fun recreational if you are opposed to speed, torque, and an awesome engine sound which is like a two stroke mixed with a lion and a T-rex
    #3 modified twin from a sxr can be awesome in a 550. SXR is a huge ski and should have had a 1100 from the factory.
    #4 a sxr hull I specifically modded kicks serious a$$ in western MI with a judge ported 1100 in it

    Fixed it for you John. (ducking under desk!)



    (On another note, Long live the 08+ SJ!)

    If you buy a new sxr you might as well buy a couch

    Well, no, not really. I started on a JS550 back in the mid 80s and since than had a SX650, SX550, SXR800, RN SJ and now a SXR1500. Couches were a STX12F, STX15F, GTI130SE and now a GTX155.

    While the new SXR isn't the light playful machine like the past jetskis, it still is a carving machine that you lean into the carve using body placement to add control
