    Introducing The Yamaha 2009 PWC Line Up

    Introducing the 2009 Yamaha PWC Lineup




    FZ Series


    Although the new 2 seater doesn't have trim tabs like the GPR, Yamaha has taken some of the hull designs from the GPR and applied them to the FZ series. This new hull retains a dihedral keel shape for high speed turning, much like the GPR has. This gives the hull that "lean in" feel while carving out turns. It also has full length lifting strakes for more top speed. The hull incorporates a larger pump inlet duct for more acceleration and better hookup.


    The FZR is offered in Metallic Racing Blue and the FZS is available in Crimson Red Metallic & Stealth Black.











    A Video Overview



    FZ SERIES FEATURES:

    • The industry’s first and only 1.8-liter supercharged marine engine that is the largest displacement motor ever designed for a PWC.
    • Industry first telescopic handlebars offer three different riding positions.
    • NanoXcel, Yamaha’s proprietary material that made possible the industry’s only nanotechnology-engineered hulls and decks that are the lightest and strongest in the markettoday.
    • Progressive linear inside-lean handling character.
    • Optimized to operate using Regular Unleaded Fuel.
    • Adjustable trim control allows the rider to dial in the ride of the craft just the way they want it.

    The all new FZ Series evokes Yamaha’s world-championship race heritage while ushering in a new era of high-performance design as the first sit down watercraft made for stand up riding.

    A new feature for Yamaha that is exclusive to the FZ Series is an innovative, 3-position telescoping steering column that gives the rider the option to ride seated or standing, depending on where the rider is most comfortable conquering the water.

    The all-new Yamaha FZ Series combines the industry’s most advanced hull and the industry’s largest displacement, supercharged engine in one adrenaline-pumping package for the PWC enthusiast that wants nothing less than the best all around ultra- high performance watercraft on
    the water. This next generation of the renowned Yamaha GP Series offers improved handling, more power, stronger performance and more versatility than anything else in the segment.

    The FZ’s all-new hull design combines remarkably tight turning with an edge-to-edge inside-lean character that is as exciting as it is precise. The FZ Series features Yamaha’s exclusive, award winning
    NanoXcel hulls and decks that are engineered using nanotechnology to reduce overall weight. The result is a state of the art watercraft that is quick and nimble, but with balance and maneuverability that truly connects the driver to the machine.

    For 2009, the FZ Series includes the two-person FZR™ that features a muscular coupe-like profile and the three-person FZS™ that offers the versatility to tow or ride with multiple passengers.

    Both the FZR and FZS are powered by Yamaha’s 1812cc, supercharged SHO engine that is the largest displacement engine in the PWC industry. Exclusive to Yamaha, this engine produces awesome power, but it is also the most fuel efficient in its class and is optimized to deliver the
    utmost performance using Regular Unleaded fuel.

    The FZ styling reflects Yamaha’s racing heritage – sleek lines, deep gauge automotive instrumentation, and a masculine fast-back profile with bold colors and graphics.
