2016 Yamaha VX Cruiser HO WaveRunner released

New for 2016, the VX Cruiser HO WaveRunner personal watercraft is sure to take the industry’s all-time sales leader to new heights.

Cruiser comfort with a punch
Powered by the same 1.8L normally-aspirated Yamaha marine engine that has carried the Yamaha VXR® to four consecutive national racing titles, the VX Cruiser HO is a champion when it comes to delivering excitement. That’s not say that this little beast doesn’t have a tame side. It features all the features and technology that have made Yamaha the top choice in luxury performance watercraft, including Yamaha’s signature Cruiser® seat, Cruise Assist and No Wake Mode functions. Cruise Assist allows the driver to set and hold a consistent speed, with the ability to push up and down arrows to slightly increase or decrease speed. This provides a smooth, comfortable ride for all passengers, while helping reduce hand fatigue for the driver during adventure trips or long days on the water. No Wake Mode helps the driver set a perfect speed when travelling through no-wake zones. Yamaha’s No Wake Mode features three speed settings for maximum control and manoeuvrability.

The VX Cruiser HO is the first WaveRunner personal watercraft to bring Yamaha’s signature 1.8L engine and all the popular luxury features to the mid-range buyer in 2016.

Advanced Throttle Control Features
On the handlebars, the VX Cruiser HO includes Yamaha’s RiDE® system, the industry’s first dual handlebar throttle controls that deliver the utmost control moving forward or in reverse.
RiDE is the most intuitive driving experience on the water. Squeeze the right handlebar lever to go forward. Squeeze the left lever for reverse. At speed, the left handlebar lever will also slow you down. Release both right and left levers and the watercraft is in neu-tral. No shifting. No gears. The only thing to think about is how much fun it is to RiDE.

Superior Hull Design
Under the water line is one of the best handling hull Yamaha has ever designed, featuring modified hull strakes, softer bow chines and a new keel shape. This lightweight NanoXcel® hull delivers excellent stability for three-up riding and towing, and precise responsiveness and predictability for thrilling one-up riding. There is not another hull in the value category that offers as much fun and excitement.
