Clearly this has been Yamaha’s week. Not only did they announce the huge relaunch of the completely redesigned VX series, the new V1 and V1 Sport Spark-fighter, and the performance-enhancing NanaXcel 2 ultra lightweight decks, liners and hulls for the already awesome SVHO series, they also blew the doors wide open with their dual throttle RiDE system.
In line with Yamaha going for the jugular in matching (and in many aspects surpassing) Sea-Doo’s Intelligent Brake & Reverse (iBR) system, as responding to their uber-popular Spark, it would seem that Yamaha is also attacking Kawasaki a little to boot. Although many raised a curious eyebrow at first blush of the Jetsound system on the 310LX, it would appear that Yamaha is not taking any chances.
New for 2015, and exclusive to the FX Cruiser models is an entirely unique JL Audio system. Featuring dual M650-CCX-SG-TB speakers encased in custom fiberglass side mirrors, a custom-designed fiberglass subwoofer tucked beneath the handlebars and JL’s new M8IB5 marine subwoofer, the whole system is powered by the company’s all-new watertight amplifiers.
Pricing and other details are soon to be released. Until then, here’s the original announcement:
JL Audio and Yamaha WaveRunners are debuting a new concept audio system specifically designed for the FX Cruiser SHO. The system features a pair of M650-CCX-SG-TB speakers in custom fiberglass enclosures, a custom-designed fiberglass subwoofer enclosure that hides underneath the handlebars using our new M8IB5 marine subwoofer. The entire system is powered by our never-before-seen watertight amplifiers. This killer system will make its big debut at the Yamaha South Beach Watercraft Product Premiere held at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, FL.
