Heavy on power. Light on weight.
The introduction of the VXR heralds the reincarnation of the world's fastest naturally aspirated watercraft. Less weight and more power is the High Performance philosophy behind the all-new award-winning VXR.
The incorporation of a lightweight NanoXcel version of the VX hull has been combined with the extremely powerful 1,812cc High Output engine, more commonly found in Yamaha’s larger FX series. The result is a performance musclecraft that delivers class leading acceleration of 0-50kph in 1.8 seconds*. Combine the incredible acceleration, with impressive top speeds and agile handling, and it's no wonder the VXR is in leading the normally-aspirated performance class and winning championships worldwide. The VXR delivers all this while still being an affordable package, suitable for a wide range of water sports enthusiasts.
Designed from the keel upwards to deliver a "New Type of High Performance", featuring a newly-redesigned race-performance inspired hull with edgy looks, electric trim technology and Yamaha's exclusive RiDE dual throttle control system. The sleek, ultra-lightweight and race-ready NanoXcel® hull is up to 25% lighter than the competition's hulls, which delivers racing level performance and razor sharp handling like no other craft on the water. Yamaha's RiDE dual throttle control system with electric time gives the rider an all-new level of precise control over the musclecraft and allows for precise control when docking.
Sticking true to the “less is more” High Performance philosophy instilled in all of Yamaha's musclecraft, it’s no wonder the Yamaha VXR still is the #1 choice of enthusiasts and racers who crave class-leading acceleration, lightweight agility and affordability.
