The Kawasaki Ultra hull is renowned the world over for its excellent stability in both rough and calm conditions. Featuring a deep-V hull design matched to an economical and proven 1498cc engine and long-range 78L fuel tank, the Ultra LX-F offers the greatest ride comfort and range to get to the workups and back home. Combine this with a huge 212L of storage, luxury seating for 3, Manta rod holder, premium Icey-Tek chilly bin and Lowrance Hook2 fishfinder and you’ll be hooked!
The Ultra LX is equipped with the LXuryseat, a scalloped seat designed for enhanced cruising comfort. Contoured for a good ergonomic fit, the Lxuryseat offers ultra-comfortable accommodation for three. The seats steps can be compressed from above when sat upon, allowing riders to shift rearward during strong acceleration. In rough conditions, riders can sit on the steps, allowing the thick, impact-absorbing padding to do the work otherwise left to thigh muscles.
The Deep-V hull design enables a high bank angle, motorcycle-like turning performance. This reduces the lateral G-loads imposed on riders during turns, allowing them to better concentrate on riding. Measuring 22.50, the idealised V-angle at the bottom of the hull helps to prevent spin outs during sharp turns. As a result, the Ultra LX delivers the neutral handling and turning characteristics for which Kawasaki Jet Ski are famous.
Kicking out an impressive 160 PS at 7,500 rpm, the liquid-cooled, 1498cc, in-line four-cylinder Ninja supersport-based engine delivers the responsive performance that sport riders love. In spite of its high performance, this ultra-low emissions Jet Ski easily clears the stringent CARB regulations. Engine strengthening items borrowed from the powerful Ultra 300X ensure high durability and reliability.
Lightweight quality NZ made stainless steel rod holder fitted with premium 70 litre Icey-Tek chilly bin. For when the fish are really biting!
Ridges across the bottom of the bow, Kawasaki Splash Deflectors deflect water splashing forward from under the hull. The fourth splash deflector mounted at the top reduces spray during high-speed turns. Whether turning or blasting straight ahead, at high speeds or low, the Quattro KSD minimises spray, enhancing ride comfort.
The HOOK2-5 Splitshot offers simple menus, easy access to key functions and autotuning sonar. Perfect for JetSki fishing.
