Kawasaki Jet Ski® 800 SX-R™ is the modern version of the 400cc JET SKI that sparked the personal watercraft craze back in 1973.
This jet ski from Kawasaki provides the best performance and technology money can buy.
The hull of the 800 SX-R also sets the standard for innovation and performance. It’s designed for exceptional stability yet does not sacrifice turning prowess. This increased stability not only enhances rough-water handling for racers, it also makes it easier for beginners to master stand-up riding more quickly. The hull design also provides more foot well area to give the rider more room to maneuver, vary foot placement and shift body weight. Additionally, the handle pole placement provides optimum control and comfort. There’s even soft padding covering the tray area for improved rider comfort.
Construction of the 800 SX-R hull is out of fiberglass reinforced plastic, which helps to make the hull as light as possible while retaining maximum strength. Extra fiberglass has also been placed in key areas to further improve hull durability and sponsons are placed just under the hull/top deck bond line to enhance turning.
The top deck of the 800 SX-R is also made of fiberglass reinforced plastic so it’s tough and damage-resistant; virtually unsinkable. That’s also because of integrated foam flotation that is built into the deck and handle pole.
