A unique WaveRunner has been created by Yamaha Motor (UK) Ltd in celebration of Yamaha’s 50 year racing heritage. The WGP VXR WaveRunner will be on display at the Powerboat & RIB Show on the Yamaha stand number C14 – where it will be on show for the duration of the event.
The World Grand Prix WaveRunner is the on water embodiment of the Yamaha racing spirit. Resplendent in the red, white and black 50th Anniversary colours, the WGP WaveRunner looks impressive on or off the water.
Since May 1961, when Yamaha first participated in a grand prix race, the passion and spirit of racing has run throughout the company. This exciting special edition reflects the WGP Anniversary Edition motorcycles which share the same speed block livery as the ski. This celebratory red, black and white livery was also used by the Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP team in several races throughout the 2011 calendar.
The WGP WaveRunner is based on the VXR which features Yamaha’s four-cylinder 1,812cc marine engine, the largest displacement engine ever in a production watercraft. The naturally aspirated high output power unit is complimented by NanoXcel® hull technology. This results in superb acceleration, top speed and handling agility, together with supreme fuel efficiency.
With numbers strictly limited this is a very special WaveRunner and the lucky owners will receive a pair of VIP tickets to a British Superbike round in 2012 courtesy of the Championship winning Swan Yamaha team.The YMUK team have also produced a limited edition owner’s pack which certifies the limited number of the ski and provides a memento for the owner.
