GP1800R SVHO 2021
“Extreme” is not enough.
As the flagship of the GP family, the GP1800R SVHO is a class-leading model thanks to an array of engineering innovations that make riding it an instant power blast. It also inherits the signature Yamaha features, such as the new lightweight NanoXcel2 hull and deck, and our revolutionary RiDE control system.
Our attention to detail goes even further: a race-designed, top-loader intake grate, a ride plate with improved handling, cornering and rough water hook-up, lower centre of gravity, new ergonomic seating and handlebar designs – and all deliver superb control.
Available in 2 colours
excluding trailer, PDI and cover
Lightweight hull and body for top performance
Made possible by Yamaha’s unique materials technology, NanoXcel2 is an impressive 18% lighter than our revolutionary NanoXcel – yet just as rigid and strong. It maximises the exciting performance of both the new GP1800R models, helping it deliver its sensational acceleration, even sharper cornering and more stability at high speed.
New design ergonomics – for superb control
The balance and stability of the new GP1800 has been enhanced by lowering and centralising the centre of gravity, along with the adoption of a new, narrower design for both the seat and the fully adjustable, race-design handlebar. Combined with the new ergonomic sitting position and deeper footwells, the result is an amazing new level of rider control.
Race-inspired pump design and intake grate
Improving both acceleration and handling, the new pump, impeller and intake grate have been introduced as a result of the excellent results achieved in racing. The extra grip it gives on the water makes for even more responsive and accurate handling in any conditions.
Auto-Trim function with Cornering and Launch control
This exclusive, industry-first system offers a fully automatic trim function, which operates independently of the effcient electronic trim control on the handlebar. When engaged, Cornering Control automatically shifts the trim down when decelerating for sharp cornering. Launch Control shifts the trim down to prevent bow rise when accelerating quickly.
Ride system (Reverse with Intuitive Decelration Electronics)
The revolutionary RiDE system transforms your riding pleasure, bringing a feeling of confidence to every rider... at every level. Simply pull the throttle lever on the right hand-grip to move forwards and accelerate. Pull the lever on the left grip to slow down or to reverse. Yes, it's really that simple.
High Output, supercharged 1.8- litre, DOHC, 16V engine
The four-cylinder DOHC 1.8-litre engine (supercharged in this new GP1800R SVHO) is the largest displacement in the industry, yet thanks to our continuous programme of innovation and product improvement, it is extremely compact. The result is astonishing power, acceleration and huge torque, along with clean effciency and economy.
