Yamaha WaveRunner VX700S Jet Ski ridden and reviewed!!

I always force my team to think unusual, out of the box- may it be the test reviews, stories, interviews whatsoever to be published here on technwheelz. Now taking my words seriously, our team mate rode down to Alibaug (coastal town in Raigad District of Maharashtra) to ride and review the Yamaha WaveRunner VX700S JET SKI !!

Introduced in 2011, the Yamaha WaveRunner VX700S is the best-selling jet ski in the entry-level segment. Powered by a 2-stroke 700cc engine, this model is popular among the customers around the world regardless of rental or individual use. Known for its reliability and durability, the VX700S is the only 2-stroke runabout model from the manufacturer.

  • Multi Function Digital Meter: Specially designed meters provide a wide range of information in an easy-to-read format. A convenient tachometer keeps the rider informed about the rpm of the engine, while a fuel gauge and hour meter tells the rider when to refuel and keeps track of running time. There are also a full set of warning functions to provide the information the both leisure users and commercial users need.
