New 08 Yamaha info!
Yamaha's new 08 will be a three seater 1800 cc supercharged 4 stroke 220 hp new hull too (100 lbs. lighter than a rxt too). I just got word on it. The reason Yamaha has been so slow to release it was relialibility issues on early test models. You can take this information to the bank! Tommy Jordan

I wonder if one of these motors could fit in a GPR

Tommy how much? And do U know if it is a 3 or 4 cyl.? Does it have gear reduction like the FX H.O.?

I agree it must be a 4 cyl., but why such low ponies for that displacement? I would have guessed at least 250ish or more....... As far as reliability I will wait and see.... You know what they say about the first year model production run!

Too bad Yami still dropped the ball with no 2 seater.
I'll be parting out my GPR in 2 months or so and saying bye bye to this brand for the next couple of years.

i have an 07 rxp now-- think of its potential-- 1800cc= lots of torque and lots of potential. Im guessing that the supercharger is not making too much power. I think the potential will be there with some upgrades to have a really fast couch!
