FZR® and FZS® even more potent for 2015
For 2015, the industry’s best selling high performance models return more potent than ever with the introduction of Yamaha’s next generation NanoXcel® material and the exciting addition of electronic trim. Lighter and easier to adjust to the rider’s liking, the Yamaha FZR and FZS continue their reign as the undisputed king of the racing arena - and of favorite waterways around the world.
Next Generation NanoXcel Hulls, Decks, and Liners
New for the FZR and FZS in 2015 is the 2nd generation of Yamaha’s exclusive lightweight NanoXcel hull, deck, and liner material. NanoXcel 2 reduces the weight of these models by 16Kg while maintaining their renowned structural integrity.
To create NanoXcel 2, Yamaha engineers innovated at the microscopic level using a combination of “nano” clay and glass micro-bubbles to develop a new stronger resin, that uses less material.
The glass micro-bubbles used in NanoXcel 2 are smaller and stronger than other filler materials, contributing to the strength, rigidity and light weight of the new hulls and decks.
Yamaha Super Vortex High Output Marine Engine
The FZ models get their awesome power from the Yamaha Super Vortex High Output marine power unit that delivers more torque than any other Yamaha WaveRunner engine.
The SVHO engine features a high-performance intercooler, increased supercharger air intake capacity and boost, and a modified fuel injection system for increased fuel flow.
Under the waterline, the SVHO engine is matched with a 160mm eight-vane pump for maximum thrust volume and paired with a top-loader intake grate to optimise its efficiency and hookup in rough water.
When teamed with our new hull and deck material, NanoXcel 2, the result is extraordinary power and thrust in an extremely lightweight package – all adding up to deliver the all-important advantage of a superior power-to-weight ratio.
Like all world-class luxury vehicles, the quality, craftsmanship, and styling of a WaveRunner are nothing less than stunning. The striking design and eye-catching look of our FZ is a combination of symmetry, balance and sleek styling made possible by Yamaha’s NanoXcel material and closed-moulded process. This creates smooth, precisely manufactured parts – so there are no ribs or structural inconsistencies to show through to the exterior of the finished product.
Finally, as our finishing touch, Yamaha’s industry-leading metallic paint gives the FZ a deep, rich look that no other manufacturer can match.
