Yamaha Unveils New 2017 WaveRunner Line

Yamaha WaterCraft Group introduced its 2017 WaveRunner line that includes the exciting new EX™ Series starting at just $6,599, as well as a new reincarnation of Yamaha’s legendary GP® racing series, the GP1800. The products were unveiled at the company’s annual dealer meeting being held in Chicago, IL, where Yamaha also set out its strategy to be the #1 global marine brand.


New Yamaha’s EX Series, starting at $6,599

The EX WaveRunner® Series is designed for buyers seeking an affordable entry into the sport of personal watercraft, but demand the durability, reliability and quality that only Yamaha can deliver. Key features include:

  • Yamaha’s award-winning TR-1™ engine, representing the latest in Yamaha engine technology.
  • Best performance, stability, and reliability in the Rec Lite category.
  • EX Deluxe equipped with RiDE dual throttle handlebar control system.
  • Assembled in the USA in Newnan, GA.
  • Series MSRP starts at $6,599.


New High-Performance GP1800 WaveRunner

Born out of Yamaha’s deep race heritage, and designed for closed-course racing and experienced high-performance enthusiasts, the new GP1800 is the quickest, fastest, most precise handling WaveRunner that Yamaha has ever designed. Key features include:

  • Powered by the ultra-performance Yamaha SVHO® marine engine.
  • Features Yamaha super-lightweight NanoXcel2™ hull and deck material.
  • Comes equipped with Yamaha’s award-winning RiDE® system, the industry’s first dual handlebar throttle controls that deliver the utmost control moving forward or in reverse.

Yamaha’s Award-Winning RiDE System

Featured on all WaveRunner models except the SuperJet™, EX and EX Sport, Yamaha’s RiDE dual handlebar throttle controls deliver the utmost control moving forward or in reverse.

RiDE could not be more intuitive. The right handlebar lever is forward. The left is reverse. At speed, the left handlebar lever will also slow you down. Release both right and left levers and the watercraft is in neutral. No shifting. No gears. The only thing to think about is how much fun it is to RiDE.

Yamaha FX Series, VX Series and SuperJet

Returning for 2017 is the luxury-performance FX Series that includes the FX Cruiser SVHO, FX SVHO, FX Cruiser HO and FX HO. New to the FX line is the FX Limited SVHO that comes with a complete water sports accessory package. Joining the FX Series is the full-featured budget-friendly VX Series, the race-performance VXR, and the venerable Yamaha SuperJet, the only stand up watercraft on the market.

New 2017 Spyder Models

BRP unveiled the new 2017 line-up of Can-Am Spyder models,  as well as good economic news for potential F3 buyers.

2017 Can-Am Spyder F3 Limited for Touring Unveiled | Preview

The 2017 models span the range of rider preferences and pursuits. The newest model for touring is the Spyder F3 Limited. The F3 Limited is designed for maximum performance in two-up touring. The Spyder F3-T is built for the weekend and day-trip tourist who wants a “bagger” style of machine. The Spyder F3-S line includes a new Daytona 500 Edition, which offers Sport mode to allow for high performance-minded riding and even to allow for controlled rear-wheel spins.

The good economic news is for riders considering the base Spyder F3; BRP has cut the price by almost 15 percent compared to the 2016 MSRP! That is particularly important to new riders as approximately one-third of Can-Am Spyder F3 owners are first-time riders, according to BRP.

The 2017 Can-Am Spyder F3 Limited has a removable top case with enough storage for two full-face helmets and includes a passenger backrest. It is easily removable, providing the option of bagger configuration or full touring capability.

F3-T owners wanting to upgrade their machines to touring grade can mount the top case as an optional accessory. The F3 Limited includes many comfort and convenience features, including automatic self-adjusting air suspension, heated grips and footboards and a six-speaker audio system.

Within the full touring category, the top-of-the-line Spyder RT Limited is now available in different color options, including Champagne Metallic and Asphalt Gray Metallic. That model comes equipped with the Garmin Zumo 590 GPS.
