Good Idea? Who Knows. But What Is Done Is Done.
What you see here is a 2009 Yamaha VX Cruiser. The VX line is the "base" lineup by Yamaha. The "premium" line are the FX models.
The VX Cruiser is the fanciest of the base models. It has the cruiser seat (for more comfort during extended riding) and the boarding ladder. It comes with an in-line 4 cylinder engine, 4 stroke that develops 110 hp. It has a top speed of just over 50 mph - which on the water is plenty fast enough to hurt yourself should you fall off. It also has "reverse".
There was a special promo going that included a 5 year factory warranty. Normally you get a 1 year warranty and for an additional $1500 or $1800 or whatever it was you could buy the additional 4 year extended warranty.
I take delivery on the ski sometime next week. The cover has to be ordered, so when it gets here I can pick the thing up. The special promo is what put this over the top. Well that and I got a good offer. I am working with this particualr dealer on another project which ties into their marketing, so it is not like I am just walking in off the street.
Anyone know of a jet ski trailer for sale? I suddenly need one. It should have a 2 inch receiver, so I do not have to buy another hitch and ball for the truck.
