The GP1800 is the quickest, fastest, most precise handling WaveRunner that Yamaha has ever designed.

Born out of Yamaha’s deep race heritage, and designed for closed-course racing and experienced high-performance enthusiasts, the GP1800 is the quickest, fastest, most precise handling WaveRunner that Yamaha has ever designed.

In fact, the VXR is one of the most successful race models that Yamaha has ever designed, beating the competition’s supercharged models on and off the race course.

• Comes equipped with Yamaha’s award-winning RiDE® system, the industry’s first dual handlebar throttle controls that deliver the utmost control moving forward or in reverse.
