The Bombardier Recreational Products lineage is more obvious due to the Rotax 1503 4-TEC jet engine. The Impulse carries the three-cylinder, supercharged, intercooled jet rated at 250 hp. With it, we recorded a top speed of 43.7 mph on test day. While that’s 20 mph shy of Sonny Crockett’s Scarab 38 KV, the new Impulse shines out of the hole, climbing onto plane in four seconds and hitting 30 mph in just over six seconds. And the cornering and lock-to-lock handling at speed is hard to beat.
