REVIEW: 2010 Yamaha FX HO/Cruiser

With the best-selling VX models below, and the powerful, high-tech FX SHO models above, Yamaha's FX HO and FX Cruiser HO were in danger of being overlooked. No longer. Last year Yamaha gave the craft the SHO's big-displacement 1.8-liter engine, along with those model's electronic throttle enhancements. Add in the lighter weight NanoXcel hull, and you've got one potent middle child in the Yamaha lineup.

No longer. Last year Yamaha gave the craft the SHO’s big-displacement 1.8-liter engine, along with those model’s electronic throttle enhancements. Add in the lighter weight NanoXcel hull, and you’ve got one potent middle child in the Yamaha lineup.

I recently reviewed the 2010 model for PersonalWatercraft.com. Click here to read my full review.
