The VX Cruiser HO is a different animal all together powered by the same 1.8L normally aspirated Yamaha marine engine.

The VX Cruiser HO is a different animal all together powered by the same 1.8L normally aspirated Yamaha marine engine that has carried the Yamaha VXR® to multiple national racing titles.

That’s not to say that this little beast doesn’t have a same side. Both the VX Limited and VX Cruiser HO come equipped with the industry’s best comfort and convenience features, including No Wake Mode, Cruise Assist and Yamaha’s award-winning RiDE® dual throttle handlebar controls.

Award-winning Yamaha TR-1 HO Marine Engine

The TR-1 motor is 13 percent more powerful than the retired Yamaha MR-1 engine while being 40 percent smaller in size and 20 percent lighter in weight.

The Yamaha TR-1 High Output marine engine is the pinnacle of engine innovation and powers all models in Yamaha’s VX line. The TR-1 motor is 13 percent more powerful than the retired Yamaha MR-1 engine while being 40 percent smaller in size and 20 percent lighter in weight. Yamaha achieves this by eliminating a reduction gear, integrating the oil tank, and using fewer and smaller parts.

The result is quicker acceleration, higher top end speeds, with better fuel economy and more fun for the rider.

Advanced Throttle Control Features

Yamaha’s dual handlebar throttle controls that deliver the utmost control moving forward or in reverse.

On the handlebars, the VX Limited, VX Cruiser HO, VX Cruiser, and VX Deluxe include Yamaha’s premium Cruise Assist for setting and holding a consistent speed, No Wake Mode to set the engine’s RPMs at a perfect no wake speed; and RiDE, Yamaha’s dual handlebar throttle controls that deliver the utmost control moving forward or in reverse. RiDE is also available on the base VX model.

RiDE could not be more intuitive. The right handlebar lever is forward. The left is a reverse. At speed, the left handlebar lever will also slow you down. Release both right and left levers and the watercraft is in neutral. No shifting. No gears. The only thing to think about is how much fun it is to RiDE.
