Yamaha is more than just a renowned producer of motorcycles; they’ve also established a reputation as one of the best watercraft builders in the world. One of their newest offerings is the VXR Waverunner, a compact, lightweight, and high-performance watercraft that’s sure to provide speeds and thrills for riders everywhere.

The VXR Waverunner is an exceptional watercraft for a number of reasons, including the new NanoXcel hull and deck. This state-of-the-art material is considered as the industry’s first and only nanotechnology-engineered hulls, decks, and liners, making them the lightest yet strongest waverunner bodies in the world day. The use of these materials allows the VXR to be quick and nimble while also maintaining balance and maneuverability that’s essential to any watercraft. The VXR Waverunner also carries a race-inspired seat that can accommodate as many as three passengers and a reboarding ladder that makes it easy for anybody to climb aboard the waverunner from the water.

As far as its performance capability goes, the VXR Waverunner is powered by a 1,812cc, 4-stroke, 4-cylinder Yamaha Marine engine that delivers race level acceleration, responsiveness and top speed, to go with a stout fuel capacity of 15.9 gallons running on regular unleaded fuel. The 1.8-liter engine is noted for carrying the largest displacement motor ever designed for a personal watercraft, producing outstanding power with a high peak torque while also being exceptionally fuel efficient with low maintenance costs to boot.
