Product Showcase: Yamaha VXR WaveRunner

less weight, more power, new model

Yamaha claim that less weight and more power are the ideas behind the 2015 model Yamaha VXR WaveRunner and reviews support the verdict that this is a high performance craft which offers good value.

The company’s exclusive new RiDE dual throttle control system deeper keel and modified hull have increased stability, performance and provide a smoother ride.


The hull on the VXR has been redesigned from previous models with a new deeper V-shape, which provides for more responsive handling. Both the hull and decks are manufactured from Yamaha’s proprietary injection-moulded composite NanoXcel and the NanoXcel2 version used on the 2015 model is even lighter than on previous models.

The engine is the 4 cylinder, 1812cc, 4 stroke High Output Yamaha Marine Engine with the drive enhanced with the inclusion of Yamaha’s exclusive RiDE dual throttle control system. This system provides intuitive deceleration and improved manoeuvrability. It is easy to operate and requires no manual shifting.

The naturally aspirated engine has been shown to create acceleration from 0-50 kph in 1.8 seconds under certain conditions.

The edgy new looks with new lines and chrome highlights will appeal to riders looking for race style design to match the high performance. These high end features are also matched with exceptional fuel economy for such a craft.
