Honda AquaTrax F-15X is the latest personal watercraft from Honda after a long hiatus since 2003. The new F-15X design showcases the company's commitment to providing high-quality watercraft that is both beautiful and functional. The craft has an aggressive wide bow that gives it a unique appearance. The bond line is raised at the bow and sweeps aft to provide both form and function. The raised line helps reduce the amount of spray, making it one of the driest rides on the water. Additionally, the Honda's rub rail protects the craft from scratches and dings when docking.
On the water, the AquaTrax F-15X is stable, predictable, and wide. The craft is longer, wider, and heavier than its predecessor, the Honda F-12. This combination provides a stable presence both underway and at rest, making it the perfect choice for family cruising. The 1470cc, turbocharged engine generates 197 horsepower and can achieve a top speed of 65 mph. The throttle response is nearly instantaneous, thanks to the turbocharger and intercooler, which are located closer to the throttle body. The intake grate more effectively loads the top of the pump, and the reduced diameter of the jet nozzle also helps to improve throttle response.
The AquaTrax F-15X comes with several features that make it stand out. For example, the fuel-consumption display provides details on the remaining riding time based on current speed and fuel. The keyless ignition can be programmed with up to 999 PIN options, making it more secure. The side panels are removable, making it easy to access for service. The craft has a top speed of 64 mph and can reach 0-30 mph in a little over two seconds.
If you're worried about feeling less than secure on any PWC, try holding onto the aggressive driver's PFD straps rather than a seat strap or grab handle.
In conclusion, Honda AquaTrax F-15X is the perfect choice for family cruising. Its stable presence, instant throttle response, and high-quality features make it stand out from other personal watercraft. With an MSRP of $13,999, it's an excellent investment for anyone who loves cruising on the water.
