    Yamaha VXR vs FZR/S

    As everyone is waiting for there dealerships to get the 2011 Yamaha Watercraft line up, I was browsing around You Tube and found the 2011 Boat Test of the 2011 VXR and FZR/S

    Here are some interesting numbers

    VXR and FZS top out at 68.4 and 68.1

    VXR and FZS go 0-30 in 1.8 sec and 1.5 sec

    Fuel Consumption
    FZS drinks fuel 70-80 miles range at half throttle
    VXR sips fuel 110 + mile range at half throttle

    Yamaha really has an advantage over the competition with these two ski's to choose from. The FZR performance is unreal, from the race course to the drag, many people here on the forum have 80+ FZR's with 90's in there and soon I'm sure 100mph!

    The VXR really is a great all around ski with performance and range in mind. Finally a performance ski that will all save us money at the pump and keep us riding longer. What will we see in store for the VXR performance in 2011?


    Calling all NJ, PA, NY riders!

    Go and visit Toms River Yamaha for the best prices on 2011 and leftover 2010 watercraft. They sell the most Yamaha Watercraft from Northern Florida to Maine!
    See Pete for all your Yamaha needs!

    Don't believe everything you read in the funny papers.
    Jerry tested this model himself, and we trust Jerry...
