Its sleek adjustable handlebars consist of integrated rope hooks that add to your convenience. 

Its Yamaha 1.8L supercharged, Super Vortex High Output Marine engine is very powerful and delivers more torque than its previous versions. The new Yamaha FX Cruiser SVHO with Audio allows drivers to switch from forward to neutral to reverse with just one pull of the throttle which results in easier deceleration, reversing, and docking.

Yamaha FX Cruiser SVHO with Audio of 2022 has tilt steering wheels that allow you to adjust the steering wheel’s height. This increases your comfort. It has a fuel capacity of 18.5 gallons which ensures that you will be able to spend quality time on the water without worrying about running out of fuel or refuelling.

While the new Yamaha FX Cruiser SVHO with Audio has many improved features, one major improvement is the shift from nano xl2 to SMC fiberglass hulls. Only the hull is made of SMC fiberglass, the deck is still made of nano xl2. The use of SMC fiberglass in the hull is better as it is denser which means it can absorb vibrations better. It also adds to the weight of the WaveRunner which helps the watercraft to sit deeper in the water which in turn aids the jet ski’s capability to track through choppy waters. SMC fiberglass also helps reduce the damage and cracking caused by an impact by distributing the force of impact as it flexes less. It is also cheaper as well as easier to repair when compared to nano xl2. It makes it more low maintenance than its older versions.
