anniversary year welcomes a wide range of 2024 models including the SX-R 160 four-stroke stand-up personal watercraft, the premium Jet Ski Ultra 310 series plus the popular Jet Ski STX 160 series plus the Ultra 160LX and 160LX-S which are carried over from the existing range.
Whether out for some weekend fun or racing in an organised competition, the solo Jet Ski SX-R 160 features powerful thrust and agile rider-active handling from the V-shape hull and produces plenty of low-to-mid-range torque from its 1498cc 4-stroke engine making this stand-up personal watercraft fun and accessible to many riders; thanks in part to a hull which is long and wide, providing reassuring stability for novice riders.
In terms of multi-seat craft, the Ultra 310 series boasts liquid-cooled, supercharged, in-line 4-cylinder,1,498cc engines fed by digital fuel injection. Riders can select from four power modes (full, middle, low and SLO) to suit riding conditions or skill level. A race-inspired hull allows the Ultra 310 to be handled with accuracy and precision while Kawasaki Launch Control Mode (KLCM) offers two settings to benefit acceleration, while Kawasaki Smart Reverse with Deceleration (KSRD) allows for reverse assist options when navigating in restricted areas. A 7” TFT meter adorns the dash of the Ultra 310 series featuring Bluetooth connectivity as well as multiple display modes. Completely rethought storage system offers a total storage capacity of 168.5 litres. The 124-litre sealed front compartment is complemented by the new 40-litre Easy-Access Storage, a 1.7-litre waterproof compartment, and 2.8-litre Easy-Access Rear Pocket.
The Ultra 310LX-S includes an exclusive Ultra Deck, effectively an extended rear deck and 20cm of additional staging platform for water play and storing gear. Two multi-mount rails built into the Ultra Deck accommodate additional accessory slide mounts and provide accessible tiedown points. It also comes equipped with a rearview camera that can be monitored on the instrument panel when in use and stylish LED accent lights that have been added to the front.
At the pinnacle of the 310 series, the Ultra 310LX takes luxury and style to the next level, featuring all of the great performance and convenience of the Ultra 310X and Ultra 310LX-S whilst adding an incomparable seat and sound system. The industry-first 3-position ERGO-FIT adjustable LXury seat is designed for comfortable cruising for up to three people. And in terms of on-water sound, the JETSOUND 4s is a highlight of the Ultra 310LX, making it the first standard-equipment 4-speaker integrated audio system featuring jog-dial control and Bluetooth connectivity on a personal watercraft.
Finally, the STX 160 series is powered by a DOHC, 16-valve, parallel 4-cylinder, 1498cc engine. It features a balanced hull, ergonomic riding position, large fuel tank and storage compartment, along with several easy-to-use rider aid functions to create a comfortable and exciting three-seat personal watercraft that appeals to a wide range of riders. In addition to the STX 160’s standard features, the STX 160LX features adjustable electronic cruise control which can be set with the Up/Down buttons located on the handlebar. It also features a comfort handle grip that tapers outward, making it easier to hold when riding in a straight line plus a premium painted deck.
Additionally, the STX 160LX flagship model includes the JETSOUND integrated audio system with Bluetooth as standard equipment. The system consists of an amplifier, an audio controller built into the handle and two speakers placed under the mirrors. It also features a two-tone dedicated deck mat and LXury seat designed to ergonomically fit the rider’s body to further improve comfort. Similar to the STX160X, it comes equipped with a comfort handle grip, adjustable cruise control via the Up/Down buttons and a premium painted deck with full graphics.
