The awesome new GP1800R - the peak of performance.
For years, our GP models have forged an unbeatable reputation among serious racers the world over. This magnificent heritage is clearly visible in the shape of our very latest high-performance hero, the new and improved GP1800R.
t's the answer to every performance enthusiast's player – a great-looking, smooth and super-powerful machine with a strong, agile hull and a multitude of innovative features that put it in a class of its own.
But now there's even more, with a new top-loader intake grate and race designed ride plate which combine to further improve handling, cornering and rough water hook-up. So even though It's difficult to improve such a legend, we just did.
Today's WaveRunner enjoys a world-leading reputation for reliability and all-round performance earned over many years – and we've always led the way with our pioneering development of efficient 4-stroke technology. The result? No other watercraft comes close.
Available in 2 colours
Supercharged Super Vortex High Output 1812cc engine
This amazing engine produces smooth, flexible power and features highly efficient cooling and air intake systems as well as strong engine internals. The 160mm Hyper-Flow jet pump helps turn that power into electrifying acceleration - and the Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) gives ultra-smooth and efficient power output.
NanoXcel2®. Maximum strength - minimum weight
Made possible by Yamaha's unique materials technology, NanoXcel2® is an impressive 18% lighter even than our revolutionary original NanoXcel® - yet just as rigid and strong. So it maximizes the exciting sports performance hull design of the GP1800R to deliver sensational acceleration, higher top speed, and greater economy.
RiDE™system (Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics)
The revolutionary RiDE system transforms your riding pleasure, bringing a new feeling of confidence, especially for sports-style riding. Simply pull the throttle lever on the right hand-grip to move forward and accelerate - pull the lever on the left grip to slow down or reverse. Yes, it's really that simple!
Remote security with Low-RPM Mode
This innovative system is an industry-first for Yamaha. One click on the remote transmitter button engages a special "L" mode (Low RPM) to limit top speed – ideal for controlled maneuvering.
A sporting heritage that shows
The GP1800R makes towing toys and people a real pleasure, thanks to the strong towing eye, a pair of large integral rear-view mirrors, very comfortable Hydro-Turf mats and a soft-touch re-boarding step. What's more, the new top-loader intake grate and race-designed ride plate help get a grip on the water to make towing easier and more precise.
Electronic trim and clear, stylish instruments
The electronic trim system, with its 2 simple buttons by the left grip, offers complete control of trim position, on-the-fly. Just click the trim in as you pull a tight turn -and then trim out again to blast away at top speed. Clear indicators for trim, RiDE system and F-N-R positions are a feature of the stylish instruments.
Spacious storage - thoughtful touches
When you're out there enjoying yourself, it's good to know you've got your personal gear stored safely away. So the GP1800 has generous stowage space, including a glove box with a bottle holder, a watertight compartment under the single seat - and there's a very handy bow storage space too.
