2013 Yamaha VX Cruiser

Posted on by  

The Yamaha VX Cruiser is one of the best sold watercraft models built by Yamaha. The secret behind its success is the fact that it is a pretty complex package offering a lot of features, decent performances, good comfort and a great price.

As far as comfort is concerned, the Yamaha VX Cruiser comes with a set of ergonomically designed cruiser seats, a stretched hull and modern handlebars. You won’t complain about the feet position either, as there is plenty of space and you also have more than enough freedom of movement.

All VX models are powered by a compact, ultra-lightweight, liquid-cooled four-cylinder, 20-valve DOHC engine with a displacement of 1052c. The engine features Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) so you can expect it to be smooth, strong and efficient.

The 2013 Yamaha VX Cruiser is offered with a starting price of £ 8,699.
