Sea-Doo launches 2014 GTI model lineup
Technology, versatility featured on new models
BRP’s Sea-Doo GTI watercraft lineup features a PWC for every rider experience level, riding style and personal preference. From the entry-level GTS 130 model, to the accessory-rich GTI Limited 155 model, the GTI segment includes features and technology sure to inspire any level of recreational rider, according to the company.
The three-time “Ski of the Year” winning GTI segment leads the marine industry, with a class-leading list of standard features and ride quality, offering riders more control with a nimble and forgiving hull that works in conjunction with the industry-exclusive Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) system. Starting in neutral, the iBR system allows effortless, hands-on-the-handlebars maneuvering at docks providing more control than any other watercraft.
BRP’s Sea-Doo GTI watercraft are larger than Sea-Doo Spark models, offer a fun, forgiving and nimble riding experience with a hull design that offers more stability and more room for up to three passengers. The GTI platform also provides a class-leading 30.8 gallons (116.6 liters) of storage space and best-in-class fuel economy with BRP’s ECO Mode available on all models. ECO Mode increases fuel economy by up to 46 percent, so riders spend extra time, not extra money, on the water.
The Sea-Doo Recreation segment conveys BRP’s advanced design philosophies through contemporary flowing facet styling and standout coloration. The GTI platform also incorporates many ergonomic features designed for greater comfort. BRP’s exclusive inward-angled footwell floors keep the rider’s lower legs/feet in-line reducing ankle fatigue. A plush seat provides a narrow distance between the rider’s knees while sitting or standing and an extended rear platform gives the GTI more space for a quick dip in the water and reboarding.
BRP’s 2014 Sea-Doo GTS 130 model is a fun and versatile affordable watercraft that comes with standard features usually found on higher-priced models, such as: Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) technology with Sport, Touring and ECO Modes, allowing riders to choose between three level of power, Off Throttle Assisted Steering (O.T.A.S.), Sea-Doo Learning Key and Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S), Closed Loop Cooling System (CLCS) and rear-view mirrors. The GTS 130 model is available in Lucky Green and is powered by the reliable naturally aspirated Rotax 4-TEC marine engine that makes it nimble yet powerful while remaining fuel-efficient.
BRP’s Sea-Doo GTI 130 model provides greater peace of mind for watercraft riders and their families with the iBR system for an added level of maneuverability. The Sea-Doo GTI 130 model was chosen as “Ski of the Year” in 2013 by PWCToday.com for offering “the best combination of features, power and handling” and “its price allows the widest possible audience to get in on all of the fun.” In 2014, it is available in Black & White and Lucky Green colorations.
With BRP’s 2014 Sea-Doo GTI SE 130/155 models, fun and peace of mind for the whole family has never been easier. North America’s best-selling family watercraft adds a plush touring seat with extra lumbar support for driver and passenger, a fold-down reboarding step and the Variable Trim System (VTS), allowing riders to adjust the attitude of the watercraft according to rider preferences and water conditions. The GTI SE model comes in two different engine configurations; the GTI SE 130 & 155 models are available in the Black & Sunshine coloration, the GTI SE 130 watercraft adds a Lucky Green color option.
