2009 Yamaha Waverunner Preview


by Pascal Bastien ,

Waverunners benefit from all the expertise acquired by Yamaha throughout the development of 4-stroke engines for the brand's superbikes. Always listening to its customers, Yamaha never stops improving its watercraft lineup by introducing innovative, user-friendly products that deliver strong performance and fewer emissions.

2009 Yamaha FZR

FZR and FZS - Sporty and racy
For 2009, the Japanese manufacturer launches the new FZR/FZS, its most capable watercraft ever. Both are powered by a 1,812-cc supercharged SHO engine, the largest in the industry. The two-passenger FZR, designed for uncompromised sporty riding, and the three-passenger FZS, aimed at performance and luxury-minded enthusiasts, receive a new 3-position telescoping steering column that gives the rider the option to ride seated or standing up.

The NanoXcel hull and deck, exclusive to Yamaha, allow for a considerable weight reduction while offering greater rigidity than a fiberglass-reinforced plastic hull. The stepper draft V-hull construction is designed for sporty handling, meaning remarkable maneuverability and agility when cornering.
Both the FZR and FZS also get the new Quick Shift Trim System. Mechanically operated through the left handlebar, this system varies jet pump angle to alter the attitude of the watercraft at idle or while underway. You can either stick the nose up to reduce drag and increase top speed, or bring it flat with the surface to get more "bite" during tight turns.
