Kawasaki announces 2018 model lineup

Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. has released its fall lineup of Model Year 2018 watercraft products. The Jet Ski SX-R personal watercraft is designed to produce twice the power of Kawasaki’s previous stand-up model while also delivering plenty of low-to-mid-range torque.

The entire Jet Ski runabout lineup is forged with Kawasaki DNA and features 1,498cc engines, a 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-month Kawasaki Protection Plus plan.

The flagship model, the 2018 Kawasaki Jet Ski Ultra 310LX personal watercraft, is designed to combine performance and luxury. The Jet Ski Ultra 310LX features a roots-type Eaton Twin Vortices Series supercharger. A three-blade impeller that is directly driven from the engine provides propulsion, powering the watercraft’s deep-V hull that offers stability in rough water. This model also features the JETSOUND audio system, which allows riders to listen to music via the 2×20-watt rated amplifier and 30-watt speakers. For 2018, the Jet Ski Ultra 310LX watercraft is available in Ebony/Candy Lime Green.

The Kawasaki Jet Ski Ultra 310R personal watercraft is an open-water race replica vehicle in the Kawasaki model line.  It features the same 1,498cc supercharged engine as the Ultra 310LX model. It also sports a motocross-style electro-polished stainless steel handlebar inspired by the Kawasaki KX motorcycles. The Jet Ski Ultra 310R personal watercraft also includes race-inspired graphics as part of its Ebony/Metallic Stardust White color scheme.

The 2018 Ultra 310X and Ultra 310X SE models share the same supercharged inline 1,498cc four-cylinder DOHC engine with its Eaton TVS supercharger and intercooler. For rider comfort and versatility, the Ultra 310X features a bench seat while the 310X SE comes equipped with race-inspired graphics and a sport-styled seat. The 2018 Jet Ski Ultra 310X is available in Ebony/Metallic Surf Blue and the Jet Ski Ultra 310X SE comes in an Ebony/Candy Burnt Orange scheme.

For riders who want the features of the Ultra 310LX but a little less power, Kawasaki built the 2018 Kawasaki Jet Ski Ultra LX personal watercraft, powered by a naturally aspirated 1,498cc engine. The deep-V hull is designed to contribute to superior handling, and the vehicle offers storage capacity and a large fuel tank. The 2018 Jet Ski Ultra LX is available in the new Ebony/Metallic Phantom Silver color.

The 2018 Kawasaki Jet Ski STX-15F personal watercraft is equipped with an engine with digital fuel injection that is designed to provide great performance and an agile hull for sporty handling, as well as comfortable ergonomics. The 2018 Jet Ski STX-15F will come in Ebony/Candy Burnt Orange.
