The VX Cruiser is powered by a Yamaha MR-1 four-stroke engine.
This is a compact, ultra-lightweight, four-cylinder, 1052cc, DOHC, 20-valve, liquid-cooled engine for class-leading performance.
Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI):
Delivers smooth, high power output with low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions.
Specially Designed, One-piece Cylinder and Crankcase Assembly:
Provides tremendous engine rigidity that's lighter and stiffer than two-piece designs.
Slant Detection Switch:
Electronic switch stops engine and oil pumps immediately if watercraft becomes overturned, protecting motor from water ingestion.
Dry Sump Lubrication:
Uses two engine oil pumps to deliver lubricating oil to each moving part with water-jacketed sump and oil backflow protection.
Corrosion Protection System:
Sacrificial zinc anodes protect the engine from harmful galvanic corrosion. Stainless steel fasteners (nuts, bolts, hardware) provide a long service life.
Electronically Controlled, Variable Ignition Timing:
For exact ignition advance control at all throttle positions and RPMs.
The Jet Pump Propulsion System
The VX pump design:
One of the most efficient pump configurations ever, increasing stream velocity and thrust while decreasing cavitation and prop spin.
Allows the watercraft to be backed up off a trailer or out of tight spots where you cannot turn around easily.
Stainless Steel Impeller Housing Liner:
For high durability, the liner maintains accurate clearance tolerances between the impeller and the housing.
High Flow Intake Duct and Grate:
The dynamic shape of these items directs water flow into the pump for better thrust, performance and hook up.
Cooling Water Intake Filter:
Filters out harmful debris that could cause blockage of important cooling water passages.
Pumps are Manufactured with YDC30:
A combination of zinc and copper alloys, developed by Yamaha marine engineers, that offers excellent corrosion protection.
The Ultra-Lightweight, High Strength Hull and Deck
The VX Cruiser hull:
Designed to be light and strong.
Progressive, Stepper Draft V-Hull with Integrated Bow Spray Guard:
Provides excellent maneuverability, handling and comfort.
Provides added straight-line comfort and an improved two-up and three-up riding experience.
Adds comfort and support for both passenger and driver.
Extra Large Boarding Platform with Reboarding Step:
