What I really like is this RiDE system. You see, I can ride with confidence right up to any target and pull the trigger stop and still turn.Boating Magazine
The addition to Yamaha’s entry-level EX Series is almost our personal favorite of the bunch. As is with the new lineup of race-ready machines, the EXR becomes “the most affordable WaveRunner to feature Yamaha’s high-performance, super-lightweight NanoXcel2 hull and deck material.” Read the Review » Kevin Shaw, Watercraft Journal
The EXR also gets a top-loader grate and set-back pump design. Top speed increases by about four miles-per-hour to the 54 mph range. The fun factor increases in turn, with the craft taking on a powerful, playful attitude. Read the Review » Veteran Boating Writer, Jeff Hemmel
Powering the EXR is Yamaha’s award-winning, three-cylinder TR-1 HO marine engine that comes with a modified engine control unit (ECU) that increases horsepower by ten percent compared to the rest of the EX line. Read the Review » Dave McMahon, PowerSports Business Editor in Chief
The launch of Yamaha’s EX series marked the brand’s long-awaited entry into the competitively priced “Rec Lite” class of personal watercraft. The EXR takes all that was special about those fun recreationally minded earlier models and adds a dose of horsepower. The result is a spirited craft that still keeps costs in check while providing Yamaha’s trademark reliability. Read the Review » Randy Vance, Boating Magazine
Previously only used on higher-end models, NanoXcel 2 reduced the EXR’s weight to 540 pounds, which is 60 pounds less than the EX Deluxe. Then, they boosted the 1049 CC TR-1 engine by 10 percent and created the TR-1 High Output, which cranks out about 110 hp. The result is a WaveRunner with some attitude: a 0-30 mph time of 2.4 seconds and a top speed of 54 mph. Read the Review » Boating World Writer Alan Jones
