We test the Yamaha’s latest GP1800R, new for 2020. Before this model came out, if you wanted the race proven GP hull without the supercharger, you’d have to buy a VXR.
Now you can get the race-ready super-lightweight Nano2 hull, with the naturally aspirated 1.8 litre engine. Now before you think the H.O. engine without the supercharger doesn’t have enough juice, think again. This thing flies!
Don’t forget, this is the same lightweight NanoXcel 2 hull and deck, that allowed Yamaha to capture the top five places in the U.S. Aqua Cross PRO AM 200 class.
We also get a good look at Yamaha’s latest accessory bag, which looks awesome and fits like a glove. If you look closely, you’ll see rod holders on the side! The whole thing detaches if you want to bring it inside.
