Yamaha Announces arrival date of new 2015 WaveRunners
Yamaha Motor Australia has announced its 2015 line of WaveRunner personal watercraft will arrive in Australian dealerships from the 1st of November. The exciting new range is highlighted by Yamaha’s new RiDE dual throttle handlebar controls for forward and reverse, the first complete rework of the popular VX Series in a decade, and Yamaha’s next generation NanoXcel material for its high performance SVHO models.
World’s First Dual Throttle Controls

Yamaha’s revolutionary new RiDE dual throttle control system is a huge advancement in PWC handling technology and has been applied to all Yamaha VX and FX series WaveRunners.
The RiDE system, which stands for Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics, allows the rider to simply pull the right hand throttle lever to go forward, pull the left hand throttle lever to slow down and reverse. Let go of both levers and the watercraft is in neutral. The right and left throttle levers can work together at speed to give the driver maximum control.
RiDE utilises a patented bucket design that forces water out the sides of the bucket, whereby acting as a virtual rudder that keeps the watercraft tracking in the direction the driver intended.
The throttle system is controlled by an electronic Boat Control Unit, or BCU, that is specifically tuned at the factory to account for the power and weight of each specific model. This is to ensure optimum performance across the range, delivering a completely smooth experience when docking or slowing down. The BCU is also programmed to understand driver input and intention when both levers are pulled simultaneously, applying the appropriate level of acceleration or deceleration to maximize control.

“RiDE has been in development for years with the goal of forever changing the way people experience a personal watercraft,” said Scott Watkins, product manager for Yamaha’s Watercraft division. “Simply...

It's back again!! The Yamaha NZ Festival of Freeride is returning for the third instalment!! This time in late February 2015. Just south west of Auckland, Karioitahi Beach, Waiuku will again be the location for the FoF 3 and the Auckland Jet Sport Association (AJSA) is proud to be hosting this event once again.

The 2015 event will be on Friday February 27th and Saturday February 28th (with Sunday March 1st as a backup for horrendous conditions). With the ease of access and all amenities close by it was a simple decision to return to Karioitahi Beach. So make sure you get this into your diaries asap and plan your trip early.

Once again Yamaha NZ have stepped up and will be title sponsors of this years event. Their support is absolutely fantastic to have and it plays a vital part in ensuring that we have a successful event. We simply could not do it without them.

There is plenty more information to released in the coming weeks and we’ll post it up as soon as it is available. Entries will be available to anyone and everyone and we hope to see everyone again from last years event and some new faces. We encourage anyone participating, or interested, in freeride to come along and enjoy riding with others of all experience levels.

We can't wait to see everyone back again for the Yamaha NZ Festival of Freeride 3 in February 2015.

If you're interested in coming to NZ for the FoF3 then please don't hesitate to get in touch and we will look after you.
The Jetpilot Battle of the Best went down recently at the Cronulla Rip n Ride with the pros letting it rip and pushing themselves and their skis to the limits. More at http://jetpilot.com.au/ripnride
And in a blink of an eye it was over… It’s hard to fathom after six long months in the planning RNR7 is finished and life once again has returned to normal.
What an amazing week, I don’t know where to start…Click
