GET READY FOR AN ENTIRELY NEW
PERSONAL WATERCRAFT EXPERIENCE.
The 2015 Yamaha WaveRunner range delivers the very latest in personal watercraft
technology. The new range features upgraded design and styling, along with a range of
innovative features that will satisfy both expert level riders and beginners.
Take control with Yamaha’s new RiDE system, the world’s first dual throttle controls on
a personal watercraft. Developed and refined over many years, the new RiDE system
allows intuitive and seamless transition from acceleration to deceleration, as well as
easy access to neutral and reverse. With Yamaha RiDE, control of the WaveRunner
becomes second nature. There’s only one way to RiDE!
Experience ultimate acceleration and handling with Yamaha’s high performance hull
material. All new NanoXcel2 is the next generation of hull material, evolved from
Yamaha’s award winning NanoXcel technology. NanoXcel2 delivers even lighter weight to
Yamaha’s range of high performance craft.
Get on board Yamaha’s new VX series. The all new VX series features a newly developed
hull, aggressive styling and design, and comes standard with the revolutionary new RiDE
control system. The new VX series delivers all the quality and refinement customers
have come to expect from a Yamaha WaveRunner and is an absolute blast to ride.
Yamaha’s VX18R performance series also features the new VX hull, new aggressive
styling and RiDE. Powered by the bigger 1.8-litre High Output naturally aspirated engine,
the VX18R offers riders maximum performance in a class of its own.

REVERSE WITH INTUITIVE DECELERATION ELECTRONICS
NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR 2015
WHAT IS RiDE?
RiDE is a new and intuitive way to control your WaveRunner when running,
turning, decelerating and reversing. RiDE is controlled by a trigger located on
the left handlebar of the craft allowing quick and convenient access to neutral
and reverse.
Unique in its design, RiDE is effectively a second throttle control operating
independently to the standard throttle control trigger on the right handle.
The standard right throttle trigger controls forward thrust and the left RiDE
trigger controls reverse thrust.
As a result, you can reverse by just using the left trigger while keeping both
hands on the handlebars. This provides single-action forward/reverse capability.
It also provides the ability to decelerate using the left trigger while riding.
ACCELERATE
After starting the engine, use the right trigger to take off smoothly from rest.
TURN
Use the right trigger throttle and steering control to turn. It’s also possible
to steer while decelerating (using the left trigger).
DECELERATE
As with traditional PWCs, you can decelerate by releasing the right trigger. But
now you can also decelerate with increased control by using the new RiDE trigger.
REVERSE
Simple operation of the left trigger allows reversing without the need to remove
your hands from the handlebars.
4
RiDE activates reversing
in one action, simply by
pulling the trigger on
the left handle.
THE UNIQUE BENEFITS OF RiDE
SINGLE ACTION CONTROL
Reversing is now possible using only the RiDE trigger on the left handle.
This unique single-action reversing delivers convenient and intuitive control.
RiDE deflects jet thrust to the sides
of the craft to reduce roll forward,
maintaining a natural riding position
and reducing spray.
PROVIDES STABLE DECELERATION
How to deliver deceleration without losing stability or creating uncomfortable
spray – that was the challenge Yamaha engineers needed to overcome.
With RiDE, deceleration occurs by deflecting the jet thrust forward using
the reverse gate. This deflected jet thrust is split into left/right directions.
HOW STABLE DECELERATION IS ACHIEVED
Thrust directed to the sides of the craft prevents nose dive and unnecessary
spray while maintaining a more natural riding angle when the operator
engages the RiDE trigger to slow down.
Jet Thrust
THE ABILITY TO TURN WHILE DECELERATING
RiDE allows directional control while decelerating. This is another unique advantage
gained by deflecting jet thrust to the sides of the WaveRunner.
Jet Thrust
Jet Thrust
When tuning and decelerating simultaneously a difference in the amount of jet thrust
between the left and right side will occur when the jet nozzle direction is changed.
This difference in jet thrust enables steering even when reducing speed.
Jet Thrust
By optimising the shape of the reverse gate, the difference
between left and right jet thrust can be adjusted via steering,
thus enabling the rider to turn even when reducing speed.

ELECTRIC TRIM SYSTEM
TRIM CONTROL AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
The five position trim system on Yamaha WaveRunners allows
you to adjust the riding angle of the craft based on conditions and
riding preference.
Yamaha’s new electric trim adjustment mechanism is operated by
an electronic actuator at the rear of the craft and controlled by two
buttons on the left handle.
This enables trim adjustment to be carried out with just your
left thumb, no matter what speed you are traveling at, for fast
response on the move.

NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR 2015
In 2015, Yamaha introduces NanoXcel2, a nano-engineered material that is even lighter,
while maintaining the structural integrity Yamaha’s hulls have come to be recognised for.
To create NanoXcel2, Yamaha engineers innovated at the microscopic level using a
combination of “nano” clay and glass micro-bubbles to develop a new stronger resin that
uses less material. The glass particles used in NanoXcel2 are smaller and stronger than
other filler materials, contributing to the strength, rigidity and lightness of the new hulls
and decks.
NanoXcel2 reduces the weight of the 2015 Yamaha FZS and FX SVHO models by
16 and 21 kilograms respectively, making NanoXcel2 hulls, decks and liners the
lightest in the industry. This innovation give these high performance machines a
huge advantage in power to weight specifications. The result is noticeable
improvements in acceleration and handling on the water.
