Sea-Doo’s budget-priced Spark already sports the playful feel and handling of old-school personal watercraft. The new-for-’17 Spark Trixx attempts to take that fun to the next level with a collection of add-ons designed to further enhance the craft’s freestyle characteristics. The primary addition is a retooled version of Sea-Doo’s electronic Variable Trim System (VTS). For the Trixx, Sea-Doo increased both the upward and downward range of the jet-pump nozzle, allowing angles as high as 17 degrees upward and negative-6 degrees downward. It’s the 10 degrees of additional upward movement that makes the most difference. Tap the trim-control toggle on the left side of the handlebars and the Trixx pulls a serious wheelie, pointing its bow to the sky with minimal throttle. Chocks at the rear of the footwells, angled at 60 degrees, allow the driver to maintain control when the running angle gets vertical. The third component, a new handlebars column with adjustable aluminum riser, raises the handlebars as much as 6 inches beyond the norm to give the rider additional leverage.
