Fed by digital fuel injection and a composite intake manifold, power is responsive and crisp.

The new Jet Ski® SX-R™ stand-up personal watercraft is powered by a 1,498cc four-cylinder inline four-stroke engine. Thanks to Ninja® ZX-14R motorcycle-derived technology, it’s the hardest accelerating production Jet Ski stand-up personal watercraft ever. Fed by digital fuel injection and a composite intake manifold, power is responsive and crisp. Plenty of thrust is available even at low rpm and the abundant torque and smooth power delivery helps riders feel more confident. The engine of the Jet Ski SX-R produces race-ready acceleration and a top speed even higher than its Jet Ski 800 SX-R two-stroke predecessor.

A high-rpm jet pump converts the Jet Ski SX-R engine’s big power into thrust.
The 148mm oval-edged three-blade impeller is made of cast stainless steel to deliver strong acceleration while minimizing cavitation.

A high-rpm jet pump converts the Jet Ski SX-R engine’s big power into thrust. The 148mm oval-edged three-blade impeller is made of cast stainless steel to deliver strong acceleration while minimizing cavitation. A cast aluminum steering nozzle directs the massive thrust and is specially designed for light operation and quick handling, ideal for a high-performance stand-up watercraft. A low-resistance, high-flow stainless steel intake grate enables a steady flow of water for smooth, consistent power.

The all-new V-shape hull design offers an ideal combination of light handling and agility.
The hull of the Jet Ski SX-R carries the engine low and close to the rider, resulting in exceptional cornering performance and outstanding handling both in straight lines and in turns.

The all-new V-shape hull design offers an ideal combination of light handling and agility for stand-up performance like never before. The hull of the Jet Ski SX-R carries the engine low and close to the rider, resulting in exceptional cornering performance and outstanding handling both in straight lines and in turns. This gives extra confidence to riders and provides plenty of agility. Injection-molded sponsons contribute to sharp, responsive handling and the exclusive Kawasaki Splash Deflector (KSD) helps reduce spray, especially at speed or in rough water.
