RiDE system (Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics)
The revolutionary RiDE system transforms your riding pleasure, bringing a new feeling of confidence to every rider at every level. Simply pull the throttle lever on the right hand-grip to move forwards and accelerate – pull the lever on the left grip to slow down or reverse. Yes, it's really that simple!
New NanoXcel2 hull. Maximum strength – minimum weight
Made possible by Yamaha's unique materials technology, NanoXcel2 is an impressive 18% lighter even than our revolutionary original NanoXcel – yet just as rigid and strong. So it maximises the exciting sports performance hull design of the VXR to deliver sensational acceleration, higher top speed and greater economy.
Wide, long hull for even better stability
The semi-V multi-chine hull is a key factor in the VXR's ability to offer a full package of supreme handling and comfort. Its width and length allow it to deliver great stability when at rest, together with the ideal balance between grip and controlled sliding in turns. The super-capable VXR – ultimate agility on the water.
Unique electronic systems for new levels of control
Yamaha's latest electronic systems – standard on the highly affordable VX Series – deliver a stunning mix of rider benefits and advantages. They include convenient electronic Reverse with traction control... and our industry-first security system with Low-RPM mode and remote control.
Race-inspired seat design – comfort and control
Ergonomically designed, with a grippy 2-tone texture, this seat will be a revelation the first-time you ride the VXR. A bolster-shaped section supports your hips during acceleration and cornering, so confident control comes naturally. Which means you can just keep going for longer – and keep enjoying the thrill of the water.
Multi-function LCD instruments & large dual mirrors
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 you – particularly valuable when towing a wakeboard or skier.
Extended rear platform and towing hook
The VXR will really appeal to watersport fans, with its comfortable three-person seat, extended rear platform with large, soft-touch re-boarding step – and its strong, practical tow hook. Comfortable, slip-resistant Hydro-Turf mats are another pleasure to look forward to after wakeboarding, skiing or swimming with friends.
