A Luxurious 3-Passenger Water Rocket with JETSOUND!

Discerning watercraft enthusiasts know better than to fall for flashy graphics splashed over questionable engineering when they can have the perfect blend of performance and top-of-the-line quality backed by years of know-how from the people who introduced the sport of personal watercraft recreation in the first place, Kawasaki. The 2014 Jet Ski® ULTRA® 310LX PWC gives those experienced enthusiasts exactly what they want: the ultimate combination of class-leading power, precise handling and superior luxury.

Ultra 310LX’s deluxe appointments are obvious: Large chromed trim pieces, a special paint scheme and Kawasaki’s upgraded heat-resistant three-place LXury seat are standard equipment on the Ultra 310LX. But for 2014 the Ultra 310LX sets a new standard in luxury watercraft with the all-new JETSOUND audio system as a standard LX feature. JETSOUND allows riders to listen to their favorite music while touring their favorite waterways.

The JETSOUND system is a bold move, but that should hardly come as a surprise. After all, who else would have the confidence to plant a supercharged inline four-cylinder engine capable of a brawny 310 horsepower – the most power in watercraft history – into a precise-handling luxury hull designed to haul three adults in supreme comfort while carrying a class-leading storage payload? Kawasaki did, and the Ultra 310LX epitomizes the perfect blend of luxury and performance. That’s how legends are made.

• Four-lobe, constant-displacement design offers significant performance increase over standard roots-type unit
• System force-feeds the engine two liters of air with every revolution, providing a constant supply of high-pressure intake air at all rpm
• Delivers compressed air continuously, not in waves, for smoother power delivery
• Produces large amounts of boost even at low rpm for instant and powerful acceleration right off of idle
• Provides a flat and linear torque curve with mellifluous, lag-free power across the entire rev range Produces more low-rpm boost than competitive or aftermarket systems, with a maximum of 17 psi of boost pressure
• Two different air bypass valves are used to prevent over boosting at low and medium rpm

Air-to-Water Intercooler:

• Efficiently cools high-pressure intake air – cooler air is denser and makes more power
• Liquid-cooled intercooler design maintains consistent thermal performance

Digital Fuel Injection System:

• High-flow fuel injectors with four orifices are fitted for combustion efficiency
• Single throttle body features a large, 60mm bore diameter

Exhaust:

• Large-diameter, race-developed 160mm jet pump efficiently converts the Ultra 310LX’s massive horsepower output into instantaneous thrust
• Pump is designed to deliver consistent output and good “bite” even in rough water conditions
• UPGRADED Impeller features a revised 3-blade design that gives the 310LX increased acceleration performance at the hit of the throttle
• Eight-vane intake guides and regulates the flow of water to the impeller for consistent, efficient and powerful propulsion

Ride Plate:

• Features a groove from the center to the rear of the plate to enhance straight-line tracking

Electronic Trim Control System:

• Allows the angle of the jet pump nozzle to be controlled to adjust the attitude of the hull to suit water surface conditions and riding styles
• Adjustment range is plus or minus 8 degrees from standard

Electronic Throttle Valve (ETV) With Cruise Control:

• Convenient electronic cruise control smoothly holds a set speed from 5 mph up to top speed
• Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) converts throttle lever input to an electronic signal that’s used to control the throttle valve via an electric motor for crisp and smooth throttle response
• Redundancy in the system helps ensure control is maintained in case of failure
• One-touch, push-button 5 mph mode allows hassle-free no-wake zone riding
• UPGRADED Fuel Economy Assistance mode revised for significant fuel savings and increased range

• Reinforced inner bow is extremely light with ample strength to handle the engine’s power output
• Exemplary straight-line tracking and responsive handling in both calm and rough-water conditions set performance benchmarks for the class
• The lower hull is specially designed to distribute the engine and power delivery loads over a wide area
• Deep-V hull design enables a steep bank angle for motorcycle-like turning performance. This reduces the lateral G-loads imposed on riders during turns, allowing them to better concentrate on riding
• The 22.5-degree V-angle at the bottom of the hull helps reduce unwanted spinouts during sharp turns
• Delivers the neutral handling and turning characteristics for which Kawasaki Jet Ski watercraft are famous
• Bottom of the hull slants upward steeply from the center section to the bow, so the 310LX can penetrate swells and waves with less shock, pushing through waves rather than bouncing over them at high speeds
• Integrated sponsons extend from the hull, providing wallow-free straight-line performance and contributing significantly to the 310LX’s excellent maneuverability while helping to retain the narrow hull design

Quattro KSD:

• The 310LX’s Kawasaki Splash Deflector uses three bottom-mounted ridges and an additional deflector mounted at the top to deflect water splashing forward from under the hull
• Whether turning or strait-line riding at any speed. the Quattro KSD minimizes spray, allowing greater rider concentration
