Big Things Coming From RIVA Racing for 2014/2015


It’s hard to write this news post because frankly, we’re not allowed to say too much. That being said, as the IJSBA World Finals draw near (the second week of this upcoming October in Lake Havasu City, Arizona), so too comes the reveal of lots of new products for the personal watercraft industry. These past two months have witnessed the reveals of the new crop of watercraft from Yamaha, Kawasaki and Sea-Doo, so logically would follow the aftermarket, and we promise you won’t be disappointed.

For one of the industry’s biggest names, RIVA Racing, these changes mean two things: top of the line performance and unmatched customer service. This past season witnessed RIVA-supported Factory Yamaha and Sea-Doo racers snatching up checkered flags one after another, and understandably so. The Factory Yamaha Dean’s Team crew absolutely dominated the Pro Runabout Open, Limited, Stock and Naturally Aspirated classes. Equally, RIVA-equipped Sea-Doos put up a good fight too.

RIVA will have a tiered selection of performance packages for all SVHO-optioned runabouts to both work with Yamaha’s all-new RiDE dual-throttle brake and reverse system (found only the FX SVHO units, the FZ runabouts come without it), and to get the most out of Yamaha’s uber-lightweight NanoXcel 2 material. And of course, expect to see plenty of go-fast goods for your favorite Rotax-powered Sea-Doos too.

Other news includes the fruition of two-year’s worth of labor; a complete relaunch of RIVA Racing’s website and store. This will dramatically improve customer’s access to the company’s full range of products, video tutorials, installation instructions, an application guide and much, much more (which we can’t unveil just yet). RIVA has been thrashing to perfect their site for both traditional laptop and PC viewing, as well as mobile optimization, so you can browse for parts on your phone or tablet.

This only adds to RIVA’s dedication to getting you the best products in the industry. So to make sure you don’t miss a thing, go follow RIVA Racing’s Facebook page today for the latest updates and product reveals!
