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.
Yamaha's cutting-edge NanoXcel2 ultra-lightweight hulls and decks are 18% lighter than the original NanoXcel®, but just as strong. This advanced material compound delivers exceptional performance properties resulting in significant improvements in acceleration, top-end speed, fuel economy, and handling.
Open Looped Cooling System
All Yamaha WaveRunners utilise open loop cooling, which is used by 99% of marine manufacturers. Open loop systems have been proven to be the most effective, reliable and maintenance free solution for marine environments, which means less money and less time off the water.
The electronic trim 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. *Previous Year Model shown
VX Series Hull and Deck Design
The VX hull features a cutting-edge design with a deeper V-shape Keel, modified hull strakes and softer bow chines, delivering excellent stability for three-up riding and towing, and precise responsiveness and predictability for thrilling one-up riding.
Multi-Function Cockpit Display*
The specially designed digital display meter provides a wide range of information in a clear and easy-to-read format. The tachometer keeps the rider informed about engine RPM, speed and gear selection - while fuel gauge, hour readouts and warning functions provide the rider with complete peace of mind. *Previous Year Model shown
Integrated Dual Mirrors
Incorporating Yamaha’s trademark compact and edgy design styling, the integrated mirrors not only look good but aid rider visual awareness and safety.
New Intake Grate and Ride Plate
The GP1800R features a new intake grate and ride plate proven to deliver peak performance on the closed course.
The VXR includes twin reboarding handles and an extra-deep ergonomically designed soft-touch reboarding step, making climbing back on board extra easy and safe.
RiDE Dual Throttle Control System
Yamaha’s patented RiDETM 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. Pull both levers in any combination for enhanced handling, smooth deceleration and excellent control.
Low RPM and Security Modes
Yamaha’s remote transmitter allows the rider to select Low RPM and Security modes. Low RPM mode limits the top-end speed, improving fuel efficiency, while the Security mode disables the ignition, preventing unauthorised start-ups.
For additional on-water thrills and spills, the VXR comes with a strong tow hook which allows the secure towing of inflatable tubes, wake boarders or skiers.
Three Person Sport Seat
The race inspired two-piece, two-tone VXR seat is ergonomically designed, textured and bolstered for grip, speed and comfort - making it suitable for recreational and racing conditions. The seat comfortably seats three people, with the separate front and rear sections easy access and under-seat storage.
