Multiple Ride Modes
The FX series includes a number of ride modes to improve your riding experience. From Advanced Reverse Assist for easier launching, customisable speed settings for learner riders and an Ultra-Slow Speed Mode, riding the FX series couldn't be any easier.
Improved Handling and Comfort
For improved comfort and handling, especially in heavier seas, the sponsons have been moved forward 50mm and the ride plate angle increased for additional nose lift.
All-New Integrated GPS System
The all-new built-in GPS system* allows you to add and follow waypoints; create, record and save tracks; and accurately track your speed. For extra safety, the geofencing feature allows you to set a virtual boundary for learner riders, alerting the rider when they have gone beyond the set boundary. *Maps sold separately.

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.
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.

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.
Naturally Aspirated 1.8 Litre High Output Engine
The four-cylinder, 1812cc High Output Yamaha engine and 155mm high-pressure jet pump, deliver the largest water displacement of any craft in its class. This naturally aspirated engine delivers race performance acceleration, high-end speeds, outstanding fuel economy, low noise and reduced emissions.
Incorporating Yamaha’s trademark compact and edgy design styling, the integrated mirrors not only look good but aid rider visual awareness and safety.

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. *Prior year colour shown.
