The 2020 models show off bold new colours and graphics throughout. Yamaha's flagship FX models, with their latest design including sleek new hull and body shapes which not only incorporate the company's very latest technical developments and user friendly features, but also offer significant performance improvements, will come in four models variations for a total of five different colours. The all-round capability and sheer quality of these flagship machines are truly exceptional. Now, after last year complete re-design in many key areas and the adoption of even more of the very latest high-tech systems and features, it's fair to call the series outstanding!
It all starts with the new aerodynamic styling of the gunwhale, which fully reflects the much-admired heritage of the FX, but gives it a fresh modern look. Driving these latest machines is now a whole new and rewarding experience, with electronic control functions that range from the revolutionary RiDE™ system to the cutting-edge electronic throttle system with its Reverse Traction Control, Cruise Assist, 3-position No Wake Mode… even the magical Yamaha electronic trim system for shifting on-the-fly. On your first acquaintance, you may find that many of these stunning new technical features remind you of the sort of advanced facilities you would expect in a modern car. Take the industry-first CONNEXT colour touch-screen for instance. It delivers clear concise information and lets you interact with your machine and control it, in a really practical and helpful way; or the new Multi-Mount system that means you can take your music speakers along with you - or your GPS/fish finder - or your cup of coffee… securely mounted to the great-looking body of the new FX.
All in all, the stunning new FX series strikes another blow for supreme excellence in this demanding market. As we've come to expect from Yamaha!
In the high-performance and competition sector, the latest addition to the line-up is the exhilaratingly quick GP1800R HO who is joining the already famous and super-fast GP1800R SVHO. Both will delight the huge community of performance-minded watercraft enthusiasts for whom outright speed and performance is - almost - everything! These two WaveRunner models deliver the pinnacle of riding pleasure. For these people though, no speed is really ever quite fast enough, and no cornering ever quite tight enough! So with the race-inspired ride plates, and top loader intake grates, both models have a sharper and more agile handling - together with better hook-up in rough water and super-tight cornering ability. The GP1800R SVHO already had the latest super-lightweight NanoXcel2 hull, this remarkable material is also used for the hull of the GP1800R HO, giving it the very same advantages of even better acceleration, speed and handling.
