It’s the answer to every performance enthusiast’s player – a great-looking, smooth and super-powerful machine with a strong, agile hull and a multitude of innovative features that put it in a class of its own.
But now there’s even more, with a top-loader intake grate and race designed ride plate which combine to further improve handling, cornering and rough water hook-up.
When you’re out there enjoying yourself, it’s good to know you’ve got your personal gear stored away. So the GP1800R SVHO has generous stowage space, including a glove box with a bottle holder, a watertight compartment under the single seat – and there’s a very handy bow storage space too.
The GP1800R SVHO makes towing toys and people a real pleasure, thanks to the strong towing eye, a pair of large integral rear-view mirrors, very comfortable Hydro-Turf mats and a soft-touch re-boarding step. What’s more, the new top-loader intake grate and race-designed ride plate help get a grip on the water to make towing easier and more precise.
The electronic trim system, with its 2 simple buttons by the left grip, offers complete control of trim position, on-the-fly. Just click the trim in as you pull a tight turn -and then trim out again to blast away at top speed. Clear indicators for trim, RiDE system and F-N-R positions are a feature of the stylish instruments.
Made possible by Yamaha’s unique materials technology, NanoXcel2 is an impressive 18% lighter even than our revolutionary original NanoXcel – yet just as rigid and strong. So it maximises the exciting sports performance hull design of the GP1800R SVHO to deliver sensational acceleration, higher top speed and greater economy.
The revolutionary RiDE™ system transforms your riding pleasure, bringing a new feeling of confidence, especially for sports-style riding. Simply pull the throttle lever on the right hand-grip to move forward and accelerate – pull the lever on the left grip to slow down or reverse. Yes, it’s really that simple!
This amazing engine produces smooth, flexible power and features highly efficient cooling and air intake systems as well as strong engine internals. The 160mm Hyper-Flow jet pump helps turn that power into electrifying acceleration – and the Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) gives ultra-smooth and efficient power output.
