FX-SHO my opinion
I know that Yamaha would not release a pwc till it was a proven reliable quality product. This new supercharged pwc I am sure is a very conservate motor since it is set up to run REGULAR 87 octain gas ( Low boost)! 1800cc with 220 HP .This new Pwc has a lot of bells and whistles on it. This pwc is aimed at the consumer that wants a larger fast high HP 3 person rec ski. I estimate the top speed to be 66-69 mph in oem forum. I fill sure there is a lot of potential to increase the HP on this consertive engine even more. Don"t look for a 75+ mph out of the box ski. I am sure given time and some R&D guys can get this pwc to run in the high 70'S to low 80"s. Look at how long it took the GPR or the RXP to get to where they are right now. With this in mind we folks who like Yamaha products have our own 4 stroke supercharged Pwc to build on in the future. Yamaha has given us a nice starting spot, "Let the games begin". Tommy Jordan

I agree Tommy, look how detuned the 66V was to begin with....and 8 years later on the 66V and 7 years later on the GPR, its amazing.
I see lots of potential sitting there.

I agree Tommy, this engine is obviously very mildly tuned. There's one rule with engines that holds true, there's no replacement for displacement and this engine definently has it!
