Supercharged 1.8 Litre SVHO Engine
Yamaha’s four-cylinder, four-stroke, 1822cc, Super Vortex High Output (SVHO) marine engine delivers more power and torque than any WaveRunner in Yamaha’s range. Combined with the large 160mm hyper-flow jet pump and more efficient intake, this engine produces 20% more power than its predecessor.
The sport seat has been designed to comfortably seat up to three people. Separation of the front and rear sections makes maintenance and access to under-seat storage easy.
A first for the watercraft industry, all FX Series WaveRunners come with built-in footwell drains, delivering a dryer and more comfortable riding experience. *Previous year model shown
Cruise Assist and No Wake Mode
Cruise Assist allows the rider to set a consistent engine speed, helping to reduce throttle fatigue, improve fuel efficiency and help make longer trips more comfortable. 3 No Wake Mode settings cap the engine’s RPMs at an optimum idle speed, for travelling through no-wake zones and other restricted areas.
The electronic trim system allows the rider to quickly adjust how high or low the bow sits in the water, improving the crafts overall handling and on-water performance. This system can be engaged for improved cornering, carrying multiple passengers, towing or in rough conditions.
RiDE Dual Control System
Yamaha’s patented RiDE is the world's first dual throttle handlebar control system, that makes handling easy, fun and intuitive. Pull the right lever to accelerate and the left lever to decelerate and for reverse. Release both levers, or in any combination, and the system reacts with precise control.
Deep Reboarding Step and Handles
The FX WaveRunner series includes twin reboarding handles and a new wider and extra-deep ergonomically designed soft-touch reboarding step, making climbing back onboard extra easy and safe. The reboarding step conveniently tucks away when not in use. *Image of FX HO
For additional on-water thrills and spills, all WaveRunners come with a strong tow hook allowing for the secure towing of inflatable tubes, wake boarders or skiers. *Previous year model shown.
Incorporating Yamaha’s trademark compact and edgy design styling, the integrated mirrors not only look good but aid rider visual awareness and safety.
Large Extended Swim Platform
Roomy and comfortable, the large extended rear platform is the ideal place for soaking up the surroundings, getting in and out of the water or simply doing nothing at all. The decking platform is fitted with two-tone Hydro-Turf mats for optimum looks, grip and comfort. *Previous year model shown
