Last year was a good one for the brand with the tuning fork, but if you thought 2014 was Yamaha’s year we gotta say that you’ve ain’t seen nothing yet. With the new year comes a whole new VX Series for Yamaha WaveRunners, and with it a whole new crop of advanced technology and improved riding experiences.
As per The Watercraft Journal‘s exclusive reviews of both the exciting VXR and loaded VX Cruiser, it’s undeniable that Yamaha has seriously raised the bar for their once entry-level series and packed them with some premium features. Biggest among these new-fangled amenities are Yamaha’s innovative RiDE technology; a dual-throttle reverse and braking system allowing riders to dramatically reduce the stopping distance, as well as easily docking and launching from a trailer.
Of course, the entire VX Series rides on a whole new hull making for a stable and smooth ride, whether riding solo or with passengers. For those new to personal watercraft, the additions of RiDE, the ample storage, smooth and stable ride and intuitive nature of the VX are the perfect introduction to enjoying the most out of a day on the water.
With a durable 4-stroke Yamaha Marine engine, multi-function instrumentation, integrated mirrors, automotive-quality paint and chrome accents, the revamped VX series not only look great but are some of the best performing PWC in its class.
