TR-1 - 1049cc 3-cylinder engine

Despite its surprising affordability, this exciting EX model is powered by the latest version of our innovative 3-cylinder engine, the 1049cc Yamaha TR-1. Its' a compact, lightweight unit that packs real punch - with lively acceleration and great top-end power, plus all the legendary economy and reliability you expect from a Yamaha.

Designed for all-round handling and performance

The smooth, quiet power, compact dimensions and light weight of the TR-1 engine, matched with the tough, durable and well-proven hull design, delivers a great mix of user-friendly handling, with unusual agility and balance. The result is maximum fun and control with minimum difficulty, even for less experienced drivers.

HyperFlow jet pump - all the pressure you need

Exhilarating handling and exciting performance have long been hallmarks of the Yamaha WaveRunner. The instant 'bite' on the water and acceleration are made possible by a combination of a high-flow intake, Hyper-Flow high-pressure jet pump and a stainless steel impeller, which runs within a precision-engineered housing.

Comfortable seating for up to 3 people

The ergonomically designed, precision-made seat is a very secure and comfortable place to be - perfect for sports riding or cruising with up to 3 people. Its high comfort level will make you feel like it's been custom-made to fit you. What's more, there's a very handy dry storage area underneath it.

50 Litre fuel capacity - for more fun time

When you blast out on the EX, you probably won't want to come back too soon, so we've built in a tank with a larger fuel capacity than any competitive watercraft (50 Litres) so your fun out on the water can last even longer - and you can cruise even further. Thoughtful - and typically Yamaha.

Multi-function LCD instruments

Great-looking multi-funtion LCD instruments mounted in a stylish cockpit panel are not something you might expect on such a keenly priced, affordable watercraft - but you'll find them on the EX. You'll also appreciate the clear, easy-to-read Speedometer and Tachometer displays, as well as its informative readouts for Fuel Level and Hours Run.

Great storage, re-boarding and towing facilities

The EX has not only a wet storage area in the bow, but a handy Glove Box and a spacious storage area under the lift-up seat. What's more, when you're swimming - or towing a toy, skier or wakeboarder using the standard towing eye - the helpful re-boarding handle and non-slip mats are a real luxury.

On a Yamaha EX, you really can ride with pride!
