Powerful High Output 1812cc engine

Power delivery from the large displacement, High Output 1812cc engine is exhilarating – and the Hyper-Flow jet pump with its 3-blade impeller helps turn that power into electrifying acceleration.

RiDE system (Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics)

The revolutionary RiDE system transforms your riding pleasure, bringing a new feeling of confidence to every rider at every level.

Lightweight NanoXcel® hull and deck

The hydrodynamic hull and deck are constructed from Yamaha's unique NanoXcel® – around 25% lighter than a conventional GRP – so the FX Cruiser HO offers extremely agile handling and optimum fuel efficiency. The hull and deck designs are also latest-generation, delivering space and stability, with extra storage and ride comfort.

Electronic trim and clear, stylish instruments

The electronic trim system, with its 2 simple buttons by the left grip, offers complete control of trim position, on-the-fly. Just click the trim in as you pull a tight turn -and then trim out again to blast away at top speed. Clear indicators for trim, RiDE system and F-N-R positions are a feature of the stylish instruments.

Drive-by-Wire throttle control

Yamaha’s sophisticated Electronic Throttle Control system will delight you with its 'intelligent' features. Use Cruise-Assist to set and maintain specific speeds, No Wake Mode to navigate easily through low speed areas - and then there's electronic Reverse with Traction Control, to help you manoeuvre smoothly and to get you out of tight spots.

Remote security with Low-RPM Mode™

This innovative system is an industry-first for Yamaha. One click on the remote transmitter button engages a special "L" mode (Low RPM) to limit top speed – ideal for controlled manoeuvring. For your security and peace of mind, pushing a second button disables the ignition, preventing an accidental start-up – or an unauthorised joyride.
