For those paying attention, you will have known that The Watercraft Journal’s own Kevin Shaw was recently down in Morgan City, Louisiana to join Greenhulk.net’s own Jerry Gaddis and his son, Greg for a very special day of testing. We brought down a nearly brand-new 2020 Yamaha GP1800R SVHO (touting a paltry 14 hours on the clock) to place up against Jerry’s near-showroom new 2021 Yamaha GP1800R SVHO to conduct a little showdown of our own accord.
It didn’t take long to see that the 2021 model truly stands above all other GP’s who came before it, and while neither this article or Greg’s video below will reveal the final results – those will be revealed in a soon-coming full-length video from The Watercraft Journal in the next week – we will tell you that the 2020 put up a good fight and is a worthy opponent, but if you’ve got a stock 2018, you’re gonna want to sell that bad boy on Facebook Marketplace as soon as possible.
Again, the full length video and article will be published exclusively on The Watercraft Journal and our YouTube channel in the coming week, so please do not miss out. If you’re a “Yamaha guy” this is gonna knock your socks off.
