    2 Seater Yamaha with 1800ccs?

    I've heard no. I've heard yes. The GPR is done, so Yami doesn't have a 2-seater in the lineup. I'm sure they won't publicize anything soon because they'll want to get rid of the GPRs at the dealers. They might also be wary because of the economy and the SHO delay/debacle...

    Still, it seems like they have to bring back the 2-seaters. They built a whole new motor that would be perfect for it. NanoXcel, and the motor, are getting the perfect test in the old HO hull...

    What do you think?

    Dont write off the 2 seaters JUST YET
    09 will be a good year
    I think 2010 will be evan better ,maybe something light and striped down to compete with the 8500 price tag of some kawi's(the price thing has the yami r&d guys pulling there hair out) so i assume

    Your dealer has not looked at the company he represents website:-


    http://www.yamaha-motor.com/waverunn...32/0/home.aspx

    it is in black and white and also in the audio

    I waited from 2002 for a 2 seater yamaha with a 4 stroke engine and in the end i bought my doo

    I've heard both sides - that it's just waiting in the wings to come out, or that it's basically cancelled. I hope they go through with it.

    I actually hope that it's not the hull from 06. I feel like now there's more of an emphasis on rough water and offshore capability than there was two years ago. I'm hoping that Yamaha follows Kawi somewhat (on the hull *only*).

    It seems to me that Kawi decided that the top speed wars on stock skis are basically limited, so it's worth going with a hull that has a little more drag but takes the waves well. Basically, Yamaha can't put out a ski that will go over ~68 stock anyway, so they may as well make it offshore well. They'll have to nerf the ski one way or another with that motor to slow it down at the top end.

    Then, of course, the upcoming SHO mods could be deployed to get the ski to work *properly*.

    That's my dream anyway...

    When did we start hearing concrete information about the '08 models last year? I think it was around late-July, so we'll probably start hearing things about the '09 model lineup around then.

    Then again, the SHO was a HUGE surprise to everyone, so Yamaha may surprise us again
