    Yamaha’s Best-Selling Luxury Performance WaveRunners® Reach New Heights with New Flagship FX SVHO models
    Aug201311

    For 2014, the industry’s best-selling luxury performance series reaches new heights with the introduction of the flagship Yamaha FX Cruiser SVHO and FX SVHO WaveRunners.

    The FX SVHO WaveRunners are for those who want the absolute most they can get on the water — the most power, the most comfort, the highest luxury appointments and the latest cutting-edge features.

    fxHighlights:

    • Two all new models for 2014

    • Best combination of luxury and performance features today

    • New Yamaha SVHO engine and 160mm jet pump 

    • Rides on exclusive nano-engineered hull material that is lightweight and strong

    Featuring the New Yamaha Super Vortex High Output Marine Engine

    FX_SuperCharger2The heart of the FX Cruiser SVHO and FX SVHO is the new Yamaha Super Vortex High Output marine engine that delivers more power and torque than any other Yamaha WaveRunner engine. Yamaha added a high-performance intercooler, increased the supercharger air intake capacity to pull more cool air into the engine and increase boost by 60%, and modified the fuel injection system to increase fuel flow.

    Under the waterline, the SVHO engine is matched with a new 160mm eight-vein pump for maximum thrust volume and paired it with a new top loader intake grate to optimize its efficiency and hookup in rough water. The hull and deck is made of NanoXcel®, the Yamaha-only, nano-tech engineered material that shaves more than 70 pounds off the total weight of the unit, while providing a stable, comfortable and durable ride.

    The end result is an engine and driveline that produces extraordinary power and thrust in an extremely lightweight package, delivering a superior power to weight ratio.

    Yamaha’s FX® models are the best-selling models in luxury performance category for good reason. These WaveRunners deliver the comfort and luxury features that buyers value most.

    Key Comfort and Convenience Features on Yamaha’s FX Models Include:

    • Yamaha’s exclusive theater seating on all FX Cruiser models
    • Adjustable handlebars and adjustable trim that give the driver the feeling of utmost control and comfort
    • Cruise Assist™ and No Wake Mode™ that set and hold a consistent speed while cruising or towing or setting a perfect no wake speed for those long no wake zones
    • Storage under the hood, a watertight storage at the helm, a helm storage box, watertight storage under the rear seat, and even a convenient stern swim platform storage for wet items
    • Yamaha’s exclusive pull-up cleats on Cruiser models
    • Yamaha’s exclusive remote transmitter security system and Low RPM Mode™, which can reduce fuel consumption by up to 26 percent
    • Yamaha’s Command Link® instrumentation controls that make it easy to control the instrumentation functions
    • Multi-function electronic information center that includes speed, RPM, fuel level, low fuel warning, hour meter, and even water temp

    And like all world-class luxury vehicles, the quality, craftsmanship, and overall styling are nothing less than stunning. The FX design is a combination of symmetry, balance and sleek flow made possible by Yamaha’s exclusive NanoXcel material and closed molded process. This process creates smooth, exact parts every time. There are no ribs or structural inconsistencies that show through the finished product. Finally, Yamaha’s industry-leading metallic paint gives the FX line a deep, rich look that no other manufacturer can match.
