I'm doing a MC tour on Dec 21st. Maybe yours will be in production and I can take some pics for you.

Because larger engine = faster boat. That would be my guess. X25 with 5.7l does what 38-40mph?? And an X25 with a 6.2l will go 48-50mph. I am thinking that at lower speeds, the shape of the deep v provides fairly good tracking to a certain point. Also the 6.2l is lighter than the 5.7 or 6.0 because it has an aluminum block....

During cornering with the 6.2l and 7.4l the extra power made the boat slide more than with the other two motors.

really? you can get 48 mph out of a 25... even with a 6.2? I would have figured by the sheer wetted surface area they would top out alot slower than that

i cannot see them putting the rear facing seat in if the 25 already has the flip up transom seats. its gotta be one or the other. the rear facing seat novelty in my opinion would wear off real quickly then again i know a x30 owner and he will argue that forever. im content with my x25 seating its the wake that matters in the end for me.

Best I got on the Cincy MC Demo boat (6.2L) was 44, with 2 people in the boat, calm water.

Why not have the very best seating arrangement and best wake? Also why can't you have rear transom seats and reversible lounge area seating? The only time you can use the transom seats is when your not moving. The intent of the reversible lounge seat is to be used while boarding/moving.
