The VXR has large integral mirrors to help you keep an eye on what’s going on behind

Great-looking multi-funtion LCD instruments mounted in a stylish cockpit panel are not something you might expect on such a keenly priced watercraft. Nor might you expect large integral mirrors, but the VXR has them to help you keep an eye on what’s going on behind - particularly valuable when towing a wakeboard or skier.

What they say

The Yamaha VXR is the top-of-the-line in Yamaha’s VX series with a normally aspirated 1.8-liter high output engine. For 2019, Yamaha added race inspired features, including a top-loading intake, a newly designed ride plate, grippy seat, and NanoXcel 2 construction that reduced the weight of the VXR by 30-lbs. (14 kg). It is set up for towing with a tow ring mounted below the aft most seat. The Yamaha VXR is a high-performance machine that is fun for the whole family.

“The racing inspired Yamaha VXR has Yamaha’s most powerful naturally-aspirated engine, with a new top-loading intake grate and new performance inspired ride plate and seat design that makes this model hard to beat in its race class. We think it is an excellent value priced under $13,000 and its performance will not disappoint even the most experienced riders.”

“When compared to its $14,199 MSRP supercharged GP1800R sibling, the $1,900-more affordable 2019 Yamaha VXR – priced at $12,299 – suddenly becomes all the more attractive. Again, the flexibility of pouring 87 octane down its filler neck adds to the VXR’s appeal too. This is easily the raciest WaveRunner we could see a doting husband getting away with if the wife was pushing for a budget-friendly toy the whole family could enjoy. We’ve always enjoyed the VXR, but the recent changes have truly awoken this craft’s potential, and for it earns our praise.”
