This is the only supercharged unit in the industry designed to run on regular unleaded fuel. The largest displacement unit ever in a production watercraft, and almost certainly the most fuel-efficient and environmentfriendly in the industry, the amazing 1812cc DOHC Yamaha marine engine powers the VXR, VXS, FX HO and FX Cruiser HO models. Delivering a combination of ultra-smooth power development, low noise, low fuel consumption and low emissions, this 4-stroke, 1052cc 4-cylinder engine is everything today s riders want. Responsive and utterly reliable, it s found on the VX Cruiser, VX Deluxe and VX Sport. The Yamaha Difference And power to move the water Beauty with inner strength Unique technology lies behind Yamaha s Hyper-Flow jet pump propulsion system. The advanced combination of high-flow intake and three-blade stainless steel impeller provides excellent hook-up and smooth acceleration, converting pure power into instant traction. Our NanoXcel hull is the lightest in its class thanks to patented nanotechnology that creates incredibly strong intermolecular bonding. The hull is actually 25% lighter than conventional materials and has an incredibly smooth surface, resulting in superb acceleration, top speed and handling agility, together with supreme fuel efficiency.
