High Output, 1812cc, 4-stroke, DOHC, 16V engine

Yamaha VXR

The launch of the VX Series introduced a new generation of watercraft. With a 4-cylinder DOHC 1.8 litre, High Output engine delivering the largest displacement in the industry, the result is astonishing acceleration and unprecedented levels of efficiency. In truth, the VX Series engine sets a benchmark for others to follow.

Semi-V multi chine hull

Yamaha VXR

A semi-V multi chine hull allows the VXR to offer the full package: neutral handling, stability, and comfort. Its rounded keel shape has a slightly wider front section, which helps to give a great balance between grip and controllable sliding in turns. Overall, the shape of the VXR is designed for one thing: ultimate agility on the water.

NanoXcel® for the lightest hull in its class

Yamaha VXR

The combination of an extremely lightweight hull and deck – constructed using NanoXcel® technology – helps achieve superb acceleration, top speed, agility and fuel efficiency. NanoXcel® creates an incredibly strong intermolecular bond and a smoother surface compared to conventional manufacturing methods. It’s also 25% lighter.

Two-tone step-up seat –comfort and control

Yamaha VXR

The ergonomically designed seat, with its grippy 2-tone texture will be a revelation in comfort the first-time you ride a VXR. A bolster-shaped section supports your hips during acceleration and cornering, so confident control comes naturally. Now you can just keep going for longer –and keep enjoying the thrill of the water.

Re-boarding step

Yamaha VXR

The VXR’s re-boarding step makes it so easy to get out of the water and back onto the machine that it’s the perfect choice for any watersports fan. You can not only experience the thrill of true sports riding, but also enjoy the VXR for waterskiing and wakeboarding –or as a swimming and snorkelling platform. The fun starts right here.

Easy-to-read multi-function digital meter

Yamaha VXR

The specially designed meter provides a wide range of information in a clear, easy-to-read format. The tachometer keeps the rider informed about engine RPM, while fuel gauge and hour readouts keep track of the running time available. Warning functions are also integrated –so peace of mind comes as standard on the VX.
