Australian Jet Ski Online brings us an awesome piece on red-hot rider, Christian D’Agostin. He is the current Australian Open Class Enduro Champion and King’s Cup World Endurance Champion. D’Agostin recently announced a deal with Yamaha to race the Diptech Performance FX SVHO 400 during this years inaugural Lake MacQuarie PWC series in the three heat Enduro Pro GP races.The race takes place on October 14th and 15th.
The Yamaha FX SVHO 400 may be available to everyone, yet this seems like a ski built for competition. The ski is outfitted with the new 4-stroke Super Vortex High Output engine and Yamaha claims it has more power, torque, and displacement than any WaveRunner in history. The NanoXcel2 hull and deck are almost 46 pounds lighter than the previous model. The machine stays glued to water due to the upgraded performance components.
The Yamaha FX SVHO wouldn’t be complete without Yamaha’s patented RiDE technology. Of course the FX SVHO comes with the expected trademark features that Yamaha is known for. The features include adjustable-tilt steering, extended stern platform with a padded rear boarding step, 3-person two-tone fast-back seat, Cruise Assist, No-Wake mode, and nearly 5-cubic feet of storage space.
“It’s awesome to be involved in this event and to be able to align myself with one of Yamaha’s most professional outfits. The ski is a true testament to Anthony DiPietro’s hours of R&D and the thing is an absolute jet – and the best thing is the whole package is an off-the-shelf item available to anyone,” says D’Agostin.
