When speaking of a jet ski that can offer all-world purpose and versatility, you can’t go wrong with a Yamaha FZR Waverunner.
Aggressive and dominating, the FZR is one jet ski that has no problem being pushed to the limit. Its stature as the reigning National Tour Champion doesn’t beg any questions. It’s the ultimate jetski that comes with precision engineering and is powered by the largest displacement engine ever created for a personal watercraft, delivering energetic acceleration and top speed.
The FZR WaveRunner features the industry’s first and only nanotechnology-engineered hulls, decks, and liners, considered to be the lightest and strongest in the market today. The edge-to-edge inside-lean that it possesses greatly compliments its comfortable two-piece seat configuration, while the adjustable trim control allows the rider to dial in the ride of the craft just the way they want it. In addition, the unique telescopic steering allows for effortless switching between a lean-forward attack position and a stand-up riding style. The result is a state of the art watercraft that’s not only quick and nimble, but also offers balance and maneuverability.
The NanoXcell hull is combined with a supercharged 1812cc engine that packs plenty of power and thrust. It’s no secret why the FZR WaveRunner comes with the largest displacement in the industry. And when you combine that with a throttle by wire reverse system that controls RPM in reverse gear and produces maximum thrust efficiency, then you have a watercraft whose reputation certainly does justice to all the hype surrounding it.
