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.
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. *Prior year colour 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.
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. *Image of FX Cruiser SVHO.
