The Sea-Doo Spark is a breath of fresh air for the Personal Watercraft industry.  It is a lightweight, fuel-efficient package that offers fun for every type of rider, whether they’re just starting out or are seasoned experts on a ski.  The Spark comes in either a two or three seat version and weighs in at just about 400lbs (421lbs for the three seat model).  The base engine is a 60hp 899cc Rotax unit, but the Spark really shines with the High Output Engine option, bumping the power up to 90hp.  This power, combined with the low weight of the ski makes for an excellently competitive power to weight ratio.  Sea-Doo had safety in mind when they designed the Spark.  Optional Intelligent Brake and Reverse (IBR) allows the Spark to stop up to 100 feet sooner than other watercraft, with the added bonus of superb maneuverability and easy docking ability.  The Spark comes in 5 brilliant colors and is offered with a number of great accessories. It offers a sporty ride for an unheard of price, starting at just $4,999. Video after the jump.
