2013 Yamaha VX Sport

Posted on by  

The 2013 Yamaha VX Sport was designed for families that search for a practical, comfortable and especially affordable jet ski.

Despite its relatively low price tag (£ 7,699) the VX Sport offers pretty decent performances and a fairly modern style. It also comes with a pretty sporty black hull that thanks to its sleek design it offers responsive handling, great stability and neutral turning performance. As the VX Sport was designed for families, you also get plenty of storage places which offer a total volume of 57 litres.

As far as power as concerned, the VX Sport is equipped with an ultra-lightweight, water-cooled, 4-cylinder ,1052cc, DOHC, 20-valve engine with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI). It is also worthy of being mentioned that the VX Sport’s engine is the most fuel efficient unit in the industry. The engine is fed by a large 60 litre fuel tank that offers a pretty generous range.

Yamaha VX Sport

The VX Sport is powered by an ultra-lightweight, water-cooled, 4-cylinder ,1052cc, DOHC, 20-valve engine. Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) helps make it the most fuel efficient engine in the industry, delivering smooth, high-power output with low fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.

Multi-chine VX hull

An easy handling, stylishly sleek black hull is one of the reasons that VX watercraft are so popular. The semi-V shape delivers responsive handling and neutral turning performance, but also remarkable stability and comfort – qualities you might not expect from a three-seater craft – even in challenging, changeable water. Feel it to believe it.

Hyper–Flow high-pressure jet pump

Yamaha VX Sport

Unique technology lies behind the legendary WaveRunner reputation for exhilarating handling and exciting performance. Outstanding bite and acceleration are possible through the combination of a high-flow intake, the Hyper-Flow high pressure jet pump and a stainless steel impeller running within a precision engineered housing.
