Kawasaki Jet Ski SXR
For over 40 years, Kawasaki JET SKI personal watercraft have been a source of high-powered thrills on the water. Continually pushing the limits of fun and performance, PWC have evolved into sophisticated, high-performance machines that feature the latest in engine and hull technology. Increasingly strict emissions regulations resulted in cleaner running machines, but for the compact stand-up models an environmentally friendly solution remained elusive… until now.
As the pioneer of personal watercraft and the creator of the original mass-produced stand-up model, Kawasaki is pleased to present the JET SKI SX-R, a long-awaited model sure to redefine the standard for stand-up power and handling. Powered by a 1,498 cm3 4-stroke In-Line Four, the SX-R has twice as much power as its 2-stroke predecessor, the JET SKI 800 SX-R, and a broad spread of power that delivers strong acceleration from any rpm. This massive power is harnessed in a newly designed hull that allows riders to use their whole body as they skilfully control this exciting new model.
The 4-stroke JET SKI SX-R breathes new life into the standup category. Its combination of big, yet manageable power and agile rider-active handling offers a wide range of riders an unprecedented riding experience.
UNPRECEDENTED RIDING EXPERIENCE: BIG 4-STROKE POWER
In addition to delivering double the output of the 800 SX-R and a higher top speed, the easier-to-manage broad spread of power from the new 4-stroke powerplant facilitates control.
UNPRECEDENTED RIDING EXPERIENCE: RIDER-ACTIVE HULL
Designed to house the larger engine, the longer, wider stand-up hull offers the best of both worlds: agile handling and superb stability. This combination ensures the high performance required for racing while offering recreational riders a package they can handle with confidence.
SUPERB CORNERING PERFORMANCE
Development of the new hull incorporated racing feedback. It’s agile handling, complemented by great stability and increased power, allows higher cornering speed. Corner grip of the well-balanced machine exceeds that of the 800 SX-R.
Larger, wider floor area gives riders more room to move around and makes it easier to get accustomed to a stand-up PWC.
KSD KAWASAKI SPLASH DEFLECTORS
In a first for a stand-up ski, the hull features a Kawasaki Splash Deflector (KSD): a lateral strip on the forward section of the hull reduces water splash, especially at speed and in rough water
CONVENIENCE & PRACTICAL FEATURES
Combined with the efficient 4-stroke engine, the 23 litre fuel tank offers a greater range than the 800 SX-R (which had a 17 litre volume). Indent beneath the handle pole offers convenient storage for small items like rope, flare, etc. Items are secured with a rubber net. Engine and fuel warning lamps built into the handle pole pad offer at-a-glance information
