Could the VXR be Yamaha’s ultimate naturally-aspirated WaveRunner? We certainly want to say so! With its striking paint and trim scheme, stellar handling, gobs of low-end torque and included electric trim and RiDE dual-throttle brake and reverse system, it’s got everything it needs and nothing else that it doesn’t. Sharing the same mold as the GP1800 and base-model VX Sport, the VXR is cast from the middleweight NanoXcel material (not the lighter NanoXcel2), helping drop the weight slightly below its supercharged sibling. With 180-horsepower on tap, the VXR delivers plenty of oomph right out of the gate, and yet, can play all day long thanks to its 18.5-gallon fuel cell and class-leading fuel economy. Sure, we’re saying this is a heck of a hot rod, but it also can do double duty as a fun-for-the-whole-family toy.
