The 4-stroke Jet Ski SXR breathes new life into the stand-up category.
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 SXR, a long awaited model sure to redefine the standard for stand-up power and handling.
Its combination of big, yet manageable power and agile, rider-active handling offers a wide range of riders an unprecedented riding experience.
In addition to delivering double the output of the 800 SXR and a higher top speed, the easier-to-manage broad spread of power from the new 4-stroke powerplant facilitates control.
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.
Development of the new hull incorporated racing feedback. Its agile handling, complemented by great stability and increased power, allows higher cornering speed. The corner grip of the well balanced machine exceeds that of the 800 SXR.
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.
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). Personal items can be secured in the small-item storage compartment located beneath the handle pole. Engine and fuel warning lamps built into the handle pole pad offer at-a-glance information.
A larger, wider floor area gives riders more room to move around and makes it easier to get accustomed to a stand-up PWC.
