Anytime you can ride on a jet ski that feels like you’re in perfect harmony with it on the water, then you must be sitting on the Yamaha SuperJet.

Ultimate quickness and control is the SuperJet’s trademark, with the ability to out-carve rival racers by diving deep on the inside and turning like a sharp blade. All that can be attributed to its amazing power and acceleration, which if you didn’t know, comes courtesy of the race-bred 2-stroke engine that has been combined with a smooth, ultra-light hull.

The SuperJet is faster and also more stable than any other jet ski. It’ amazingly agile with unbelievable grip and bite on the water. Moreover, the SuperJet is also easy to ride with the wide-front hull, the clever, spring-assisted handle pole design and the great lean-forward riding position making a world of difference.

With the SuperJet, you’ll definitely know that the rider can easily get the fun of riding out on the open water.

The SuperJet™ is the trusted weapon of choice for many of the world’s leading champs and pro racers.

High-performance 2-stroke engine

The SuperJet is powered by a high-performance, two-cylinder, 701cc Yamaha engine. Two 38mm Mikuni® carburretors feed this world-class power plant, providing excellent throttle response throughout the total RPM range. Loop-charged combustion helps to distribute fuel/air mixture evenly for better combustion, performance and fuel economy.

Lightweight, deep-strake hull with wide front section

Perfectly balanced for hard cornering and straight-line speed, the SuperJet’s lightweight deep-strake hull features moulded-in sponsons. Positioned forward on the craft, they increase the wetted surface area of the hull. This allows the craft to turn more easily while also making the SuperJet more stable.

To increase dynamic stability and straight-line running performance within the limited space of the hull, the ride plate is positioned far aft – effectively lengthening the waterline. The pump itself is also positioned far aft, providing stable pump performance even in choppy water.

Personalwatercraft ---- "To paraphrase several notable speeches, the reports of the Yamaha SuperJet’s death have been greatly exaggerated"

Johnburrcycles ---- "Whether it’s freestyle, closed-course racing or free-riding, the SuperJet gives the ultimate combination of balance, control and freedom. With a legendary riding experience like nothing else on the water, the best-selling stand-up watercraft of all time continues its reign as the undisputed champion of the water"

Automotive Aftermarket Expert -
Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
