    Help me pick my next ride

    Looking for a second machine. Must be a Yam and a 4 stroke. Thinking about a VX or VXR model. Would love to find a clean, nice used model around 6k. Any thoughts?

    Save a little more and spring for the VXS or VXR. You will find that you'll grow bored of the VX110's power after a month or two.

    I have teens that will be riding so a little concerned about the extra power. Also, we currently own an SUV so I am sure a new VX will seem fast to us .

    I found a 2011 VXR for sale at a dealer....neever titled and no hours for $8400 w/o trailer. BUT, it sold last week. The 2012's are 9600 right now with the boat show deals in place including prep and no trailer. Going to look at one tomorrow. The VX 1100's are running under 8k right now new. I found a 2012 VX Sport for $6700 brand new. That one won;t last, but the darn model lacks reverse and a few other things. Pretty plane jane.

    Found a used VX for 5500 on CL, but the seller seem like a jackass. Only 40 hours.

    You should be able to find a decent Yamaha FX Cruiser HO (High Output) for that price range.
    That would give you a more full-featured ski and a better ride than the VX entry level model.
    I just jumped on PWC Trader online and found several...

    Here's an example for $5,995...
