features and benefits


  • The FX SVHO is powered by Yamaha's 1.8L supercharged, Super Vortex High Output Marine engine that is the most technologically advanced engine ever designed for a personal watercraft, delivering up to 20% more power and torque than any engine ever in a Yamaha WaveRunner personal watercraft.
  • Wet Sump Lubrication: Uses two engine oil pumps to deliver lubricated oil to each moving part with water-jacketed sump and oil backflow protection.
  • Slant Detection Switch: Electronic switch stops engine and oil pumps immediately if watercraft becomes overturned, protecting motor from unwanted water ingestion.
  • Intake Grate: A top loader intake grate increases pump output and efficiency, and keeps the pump hooked up in all water conditions.
  • Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI): Advanced multi-point fuel injection system utilizing a single electronically controlled throttle body and multiple reliable sensors working in armory for optimum air/fuel mixture under any condition. The result is a smooth, high power output with low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions.
  • Yamaha Engine Management System (Y.E.M.S.): An integrated, computerized management system that controls and adjusts such functions as ignition timing, fuel injection mapping, engine diagnostics and off throttle steering (OTS). The OTS function of Y.E.M.S. activates when the operator releases the throttle lever and attempts to steer the watercraft. This assists the operator in turning while the watercraft is decelerating.
  • Open Loop Cooling: A proven industry standard that uses water to cool the motor resulting in better efficiency, less moving parts, less heat build-up and less maintenance.
  • Thermostatic Cooling System: Water flow through the engine is automatically controlled through a thermostat sensor.
  • Corrosion Protection System: Sacrificial zinc anodes protect the engine from harmful galvanic corrosion. Stainless steel fasteners (nuts, bolts, hardware) provide a long service life. Cylinders, cases and heads are treated with a durable oxide coating to form a barrier between corrosion and expensive engine parts.
  • Yamaha Sound Suppression System: Reduces engine noise and vibration for a quieter, more comfortable ride.


  • Pump: A race-inspired 8-vane, 160mm pump delivering competition level thrust never seen before on a production watercraft from Yamaha
  • Stainless Steel 3-blade Impeller and Housing Liner: For superior resistance to wear and long term durability while maintaining accurate clearance tolerances between the impeller and the housing for consistent performance.
  • RiDE (Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics): The world's first dual handlebar throttle control system is easy and intuitive. Pull the right lever to go forward, and the left lever for reverse. Pull them both, or in any combination, and the system reacts with precise control. Benefits include better handling, smooth deceleration and more control while turning.
  • Yamaha's Exclusive Reverse Traction Control: This unique automatic electronic control is programmed to optimize the jet pump efficiency when moving in reverse.
  • Electronic Trim: Allows the rider to adjust the handling characteristics of the watercraft on the fly from a looser, more playful feel to a more planted, high-performance experience.
  • Pumps are Manufactured with YDC30: A combination of zinc and copper alloys, developed by Yamaha marine engineers, that offers excellent corrosion protection.


  • NanoXcel 2: The second generation of Yamaha's proprietary lightweight NanoXcel hull. NanoXcel 2 reduces the weight by 46 lbs while maintaining the structural integrity of the watercraft.
  • Industry-first Footwell Drains: Great for early season riding when the water is cool or clearing standing water when the WaveRunner is not in use.
  • Lightweight and Responsive: The NanoXcel hull has a full keel for confident straight-line tracking while the full-length, outside chines provide greater stability.
  • Stepper Sponson Design: Provides added straight-line comfort and stability.
  • Stern Area: The swim platform features fast-access stern storage, double grab handles and a reboarding step, angled deep in the water for easy reboarding.


  • Industry-first Colour LCD touchscreen instrumentation: FX owners have the power of Connext at their fingertips. Connext serves as the information hub for every aspect of the WaveRunner experience, and provides a suite of functions like security mode, thrust directional enhancer, drive control and more.
  • Multi-mount System: FX owners can personalize their ride with accessories like speakers, GPS systems, cameras and more. (Accessories sold separately.)
  • Yamaha's Exclusive Cruise Assist: Allows the driver to set and hold a particular speed while maintaining a comfortable riding position with the throttle. Once the speed is set, the driver can increase or decrease the speed through the simple push of a button. When the throttle is disengaged the system shuts off.
  • Yamaha's Exclusive No Wake Mode: Makes cruising through no-wake zones a breeze. Once engaged, the no-wake mode moves the engine's RPMs to an optimal speed for efficiently navigating through a no-wake zone. Once through, the driver simply applies throttle and the no-wake mode is released.
  • Next-generation L-Mode: Pre-set top speed and acceleration curve for less experienced riders.
  • Command Link: Offers quick, easy access to onboard instrumentation keys.
  • Adjustable Steering: To best accommodate the driver, the steering column can be tilted up or down - offering greater comfort.
  • 166 Litres of Storage: Including two dry compartments and a cavernous deck storage providing the perfect place for stowing gear .
  • Tow Hook: Convenient placement of a tow hook makes wakeboarding or skiing a breeze
  • Dual Mirrors: Automotive style and convenience.
  • Yamaha's Trademarked Visibility Spout®: A waterspout from the rear of the craft that improves the watercraft's conspicuity.
  • Extended Ride Plate: The shape and length of the ride plate determines stability, time to plane and straight-line trackability. The extended ride plate on the SVHO models is designed specifically to deliver the best handling characteristics possible.
