the seat!!! way more cushion on the cruiser as well as the humps!!!! pop up cleats. . and a couple trim (chrome peices) on the cruiser models . . other than that NO DIFFERENCE IN PERFORMANCE OR HULL!!! OR GUAGES !!!! worth the extra $600-800. . . .my honest opinion NO!!! but i liked the blue the f.x. h.o. cruiser came in . . so yes in that matter it was worth it haha . . how ever the sho comes in blue so i don't need the cruiser model and i wount be getting it this time around !!

yah the only big difference is the seat for most people it doesnt make much of a difference but for families the extra is worth it

Seat, cleats, paint.... To name a few things. The Cruiser DOES have different options in the gauge cluster. But visually are the same.

Extra multifunction display on cruiser;
Compass, Average speed, tripmeter, trip timer, fuel consumption per hour, fuel consumption per mile, water temp, air temp.
Only problem with this display is it resets every time engine is stopped, thus making it nowhere as usefull as it could be!!

the cruiser seat is the worst enemy for tall people atleast thats what i find, but if the ski has tilt stearing then it's fine.

I feel I should come in here.
I ran my SHO in this morning (12 hours ago US time) to the Yamaha manual.
It's a red Cruiser with the 'seat'. I've owned GPs and GPRs and enjoyed sliding around on the seat and sitting will back when 'pressing on'.
I found the Cruiser seat stopped this riding style. I was held in the seat and my movement was restricted. I did play with the angle of the bars.
Perhaps I may get used to it and change my old riding habits. Not sure.
I did about another hour on a 'standard' FX160 later on and I was back to sitting well back and sliding around. Felt good.
I was talking to a friend (Kev FX160) a while ago and he as an experiance PWC user felt the Cruiser seat is probably for people that have perhaps not had a ski before, and are not used to moving around a lot.
Kev does have an FX160 with the 'standard' seat.
In Australia I was commited to the Cruiser as that's the only SHO, at the moment that is coming in here in red. Have had blue Yami's for years, so did not want the new blue 'standard' SHO. I needed a change. Am I a problem?
