Manufacturers highlight comparisons
With the sudden lack of head-to-head PWC testing available through the traditional magazine outlet, both Yamaha and Sea-Doo have taken things into their own hands to get consumers model comparison information.
A prominent link on the Yamaha Web site now offers a comparison between any WaveRunner model and select models of their competitors. Sea-Doo’s link may not be as immediately obvious, but it’s also linked from its home page. Depending upon which Sea-Doo model you choose, a drop-down menu is created with links to at least one competitive model. While the information is interesting, consumers should be wary of the marketing slant. This is Yamaha or Sea-Doo picking a competitive model, so it may or may not agree with a consumer’s personal preference.
For example in the same head-to-head comparison, each brand lists themselves as, what else, the winner.

Electric Moto Corp. says it has plans for several other vehicles, including a PWC.
