SVHO Engine

Power Plus Lightweight

Yamaha engineers innovated at the microscopic level using nano clay plus glass microbubbles to create a new stronger resin system that uses less material. The glass microbubbles 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.

NanoXcel 2 reduces the weight of the Yamaha FZ Series by 35 pounds, and reduces the weight of the FX SVHO series by 46 pounds. As a result, Yamaha hulls and decks are the lightest in their class while maintaining the strength and durability they’ve come to be recognized for.

The FZR is an amazing platform to start with in Open. It’s like starting two or three levels ahead of my competition. The FZR is the total package with the big pump, the big supercharger, the nano hull, the quick shift trim, and Yamaha reliability and durability.Brian Baldwin, Yamaha FZR Racer
I used to have to carry lots of spare parts for my Sea-Doo. I don’t carry anything extra for my FZR. There’s no comparing the reliability.TROY SNYDER, Yamaha FZR Racer
The FZR is faster everywhere on the racecourse regardless of the conditions. I can especially feel the difference on the starting line. The acceleration is way faster and the hookup is amazing. The new SVHO engine and the new 160mm pump is a perfect combination right out of the box.Aero Aswar, Yamaha FZR racer
