    FX SHO vs. FX Cruiser SHO

    Hello.

    What is the difference between the FX SHO and FX Cruiser SHO?

    The seat and the handle bar look different and the Cruiser appears to have some integrated tie-downs. Anything else?

    Would the Cruiser just offer a more comfortable ride?

    I was first interested in a Sea-Doo, but reliability has me considering Yamaha as a first purchase. Looking at the FX SHO or FX Cruiser SHO.

    Thanks.

    Main difference is the cruiser seat. But just for a heads up, I understand yamaha has head better reliability for all there non-SC skis, and the SHO is there first SC ski and the reliability factor might not be there. Who knows, just giving you a heads up

    Yeh,stallion hit it right on the head...
    I would go with the non-cruiser model personally...
    Yamaha has a major recall right now...

    Price (About 700 more)
    Colours (Silver/Burgandy)
    Seat (Comfortable if you ar under 6')
    Handle bar (Higher?)
    Info center (Fuel flow,trip,time,water/air temps)
    Chrome accents (Handle bar)
    Pull up cleats (Very useful)

    I got one because it was available in FL, got a great price from Riva, loved the silver/black colours and the local dealer was not importing any (Going to be the only silver SHO in Antigua)

    The cruiser is also more passenger friendly, as well as the seat upstand/back, the grab handle wraps around the seat & is easier to hold on to.

    Oh wow, I did not know about the handle bar difference, oh well. =P And the pull-up cleats must be a very useful feature.
