For 2019, Yamaha’s most affordable series of WaveRunner personal watercraft now includes the high-performance EXR that is the most powerful and lightweight Rec Lite watercraft on the water today.
Powering the EXR is Yamaha’s awardwinning, three-cylinder TR-1® HO marine engine that comes with a modified engine control unit (ECU) that increases horsepower by ten percent compared to the rest of the EX line
The EXR becomes the most affordable WaveRunner to feature Yamaha’s high-performance, super-lightweight NanoXcel® 2 hull and deck material. The EXR weighs in at a mere 540 lbs, which is 60 pounds lighter than the EX Deluxe. It also features a top-loader intake grate and a 40mm pump extension for more agile handling and performance.
Completing the new EXR is Yamaha’s RiDE® dual throttle system for exceptional maneuverability (also available on the EX Deluxe model).
“No one has developed a watercraft quite like the EXR,” continued Watkins. “With its combination of high performance and ultra light weight, it offers the best power to weight in its class, and customers are going to find that it’s a blast to ride, unlike anything else on the water today.”
Yamaha’s best-selling luxury performance personal watercraft series returns with an all-new deck and hull design, the industry’s first color touchscreen instrumentation, self-draining footwells, and an innovative multi-mount system that makes affixing accessories to the FX a snap.
For 2019, the FX Series includes five models; the flagship FX Limited SVHO, supercharged FX SVHO and FX Cruiser SVHO, and normallyaspirated FX and FX Cruiser HO.
The new deck of the FX Series is aggressive and bold, featuring stylish gunwales and an entire look that is supercar-sleek. The new hull design favors stability, predictability, and comfort in choppy water conditions.
All-new for 2003 is the two-person Yamaha WaveRunner® GP1300R®, the world's first musclecraft that exceeds the Federal EPA 2006 emission requirements, and has earned a California C.A.R.B. two-star rating for very low emissions.
The 165 horsepower, three-cylinder GP1300R is the most powerful production two-stroke, watercraft available today featuring the most technologically-advanced engine in its category that is cleaner, quieter and more fuel efficient than anything offered in an ultimate-performance package before.
The GP1300R is designed for people that want ultra-high-performance, world-class handling and unequalled reliability. Based on the hull and deck design of the multi-time IJSBA world champion GP1200R, the more powerful GP1300R has no equal.
