160hp² 1,498cc, Four-stroke Engine

  • Strong engine provides 160hp² plus excellent low- and mid-range torque
  • Dual overhead cams (DOHC) are light and compact for less valvetrain inertia
  • Four large valves per cylinder provide better intake and exhaust flow for optimum power and torque
  • Intake tract designed for maximum performance
  • Waterproof ECU and ignition coils protect the ignition system from electrical shorts
  • Unique semi-dry sump oil system lowers the crankshaft in the engine, eliminating the need for scavenging pumps and helps to keep the oil in the sump instead of looding the crankcase if the craft capsizes
  • Large capacity airbox lowers engine noise and improves intake air flow

Fuel Injection

  • Large, single 60mm throttle body
  • Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) provides great throttle response, smooth engine performance, quick acceleration, as well as easy starting and excellent fuel economy
  • Four-orifice, high-flow fuel injectors provide efficient combustion

155mm Jet Pump

  • Large-diameter 155mm jet pump efficiently converts the engine’s horsepower into thrust
  • Developed using feedback from Kawasaki’s race machines, the pump is designed to deliver consistent output and good “bite,” even when riding rough water
  • The large, sophisticated three-blade impeller delivers both high-speed performance and quiet operation
  • Eight-vane intake guide smoothes and regulates the flow of water from the impeller for efficient and powerful propulsion
  • The reverse lever is on the left side for easy operation while modulating the throttle with the right hand

Composite Hull

  • The design incorporates feedback from Kawasaki’s IJSBA championship-winning racing machines for excellent tracking and responsive handling in both calm and rough water conditions
  • Delivers the neutral handling and turning characteristics that made Kawasaki Jet Ski® personal watercraft famous, yet the hull enables a high bank angle or motorcycle-like turning performance with reduced side g-loads imposed on riders during turns
  • The 22.5-degree V-angle at the bottom of the Ultra LX hull helps prevent spinouts during sharp turns and provides a smoother ride in rough water
  • Placing the battery near the center of the machine optimizes weight balance in the hull and frees space inside the engine bay to help maximize storage capacity
  • The bottom of the hull slants steeply upwards from the center section to the bow, allowing the Ultra LX to penetrate swells and waves with less shock. This allows the hull to push through waves rather than bounce over them at higher speeds
  • Integrated sponsons extend from the hull, providing wallow-free straight-line performance and contributing significantly to the excellent high-speed maneuverability of the Ultra LX, while helping to retain a narrow hull design

Ride Plate

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

Quattro KSD

  • The Kawasaki Splash Deflector (KSD) on the Ultra LX 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 running straight ahead at high or low speeds, the Quattro KSD minimizes spray, allowing greater rider concentration

Kawasaki Smart Steering® and Smart Learning Operation Mode

  • Kawasaki Smart Steering® (KSS®) monitors steering input and engine speed and, when certain conditions are met, raises RPM to initiate a desired turn, helping new riders to better enjoy the performance of this remarkable machine
  • Smart Learning Operation (SLO) allows novice riders to become familiar with the handling and response of this Jet Ski watercraft at a more relaxed pace before unleashing the full performance of the Ultra LX
  • Two separate keys, one for SLO mode and one for full-power operation, ensure the correct setting is chosen

Comfort and Convenience

  • LXuryseat incorporates specific support for the rider and passenger for increased confidence and a more relaxing experience
  • Five-way adjustable handlebar allows operation while standing or sitting for a wide range of riders
  • Ergonomic deck design has plenty of legroom for rider-friendly seating
  • A long rear boarding step makes it easy to climb onboard, and the step retracts inside the bumper to prevent damage
  • A quick and easy under-hood hose connection allows easy flushing of sea water from of the engine bay
  • Mirrors mounted on the upper deck facilitate opening of the hatch cover

Capacious Storage

  • 60-gallon storage capacity is the largest in its class
  • The large-capacity, fully sealed 58-gallon storage area is fitted with a detachable storage tray and has plenty of room for recreational equipment
  • Glovebox in the center console has a built-in drink holder with space for two drink bottles
  • Compact storage area under the rear passenger seat is ideal for small items
