The power dynamic.

Kawasaki continues to stand out in the personal watercraft category with its Jet Ski® watercraft lineup. Offering a wide range of supercharged machines that evoke fun on the water, the 2018 Jet Ski® Ultra® lineup is among the most exciting and powerful on the market. The line up also includes the Kawasaki Jet Ski® SX-R™, a four-stroke stand-up personal watercraft.

The Jet Ski SX-R personal watercraft produces twice the power of Kawasaki’s previous stand-up model while also delivering plenty of low-to-mid-range torque. This makes the stand-up personal watercraft fun and accessible to those without a competition license. The 2018 Jet Ski SX-R watercraft stands out in performance and fun on the water.

The entire Jet Ski runabout lineup is forged with Kawasaki DNA and features powerful 1498cc engines, an innovative deep-V hull design, a large amount of storage and a fuel tank capable of extended range. The entire lineup is also covered by a 12-month limited warranty with an optional 12, 24, 36 or 48-months Kawasaki Protection Plus™ plan.
