Yamaha is excited to announce the 2024 WaveRunner lineup which sees more power, more colour and more choice than ever before.
Yamaha WaveRunners continue to lead the pack when it comes to big displacement marine engines, with the release of the industry’s first 1.9 Litre naturally aspirated high output engine, delivering quicker acceleration and higher top-end speed in HO models across the FX, GP and VX range.
New 1.9 Litre Naturally Aspirated HO Engine
A new 1898cc (1.9L), four-stroke, four-cylinder, 16-valve High Output marine engine replaces the Yamaha 1.8L High Output motor that previously powered the FX Cruiser HO, FX HO, GP1800R HO and VX Cruiser HO models.
This more powerful engine provides quicker and smoother acceleration and higher top-end speed. This is achieved through the engine's increased displacement, optimised intake and exhaust paths, and a 10-percent larger throttle body for more power and torque.
This new engine is paired with a new top loader intake grate on the FX HO and VX HO models for improved pickup and acceleration.
FX Series Upgrades
FX Cruiser HO and FX HO models have been upgraded with the new 1.9 Litre naturally aspirated high output engine and a new intake grate for improved jet pump efficiency and acceleration. The larger 7-inch Connext touchscreen, previously only available on the FX SVHO models, is now fitted as standard on FX Cruiser HO and FX HO models.
The home screen layout of the Connext touchscreen has been refreshed across all FX models, delivering a cleaner look and improved visibility, while the Drive Control options have been expanded to now offer Economy, Towing, Performance, Comfort and Custom setting options, for an improved riding experience.
2024 sees the FX Limited SVHO, FX Cruiser SVHO and FX SVHO return with a mix of exciting colours, and extensive list of high-quality features carried over from 2023. FX SVHO models continue to be powered by the supercharged SVHO 1.8L four-cylinder engine delivering awesome performance and proven reliability.
GP Series Upgrades
GP1800R HO has been rebadged as the GP 19HO and receives the new, more powerful, 1.9 Litre naturally aspirated high output engine. Offering a unique blend of race inspired features such as auto trim and launch control matched with the versatile power of a naturally aspirated engine, the GP 19HO is in a class of its own.
The all-conquering GP1800R SVHO has been rebadged as the GP SVHO and will once again be available in two striking colour options. GP SVHO models continue to be powered by the supercharged SVHO 1.8L four-cylinder engine delivering awesome performance and proven reliability.
VX Series Upgrades
The VX Series offers an affordable, feature-rich, and versatile package for those that appreciate reliability, quality, and performance, without the luxury price tag. The 2024 VX series includes the VX Cruiser HO, VX Cruiser and VX Deluxe.
This year’s VX Cruiser HO packs even more punch, incorporating the new 1.9 Litre big horsepower engine and a new intake grate for improved acceleration and top-end speed.
EX and Freestyle Series
The EX Series and Jet Blaster return in 2024 with exciting new colours and the same performance and features that make these models so popular. The SuperJet returns in the existing clean and sharp white appearance and continues to offer a modern take on traditional stand-up riding with the benefit of the latest four-stroke engine technology.
“The MY24 line up is extremely exciting, with our next generation power plant taking the performance of our naturally aspirated High Output craft to the next level.” said Marty Kypr, National WaveRunner Product Manager. “We are very proud of the high quality and comprehensive product line-up we can offer Australian customers in the 2024 model range.”
