2017 ULTRA LX Ride Comfort

Ride Comfort

Ridges across the bottom of the bow, Kawasaki Splash Deflectors deflect water splashing forward from under the hull.

The fourth splash deflector mounted at the top reduces spray during high-speed turns. Whether turning or blasting straight ahead, at high speeds or low, the Quattro KSD minimises spray, enhancing ride comfort.

The 22.5-degree V-angle at the bottom of the Ultra LX’s hull helps prevent spinouts during sharp turns and provides a smoother ride in rough water

Placing the battery near the centre of the machine optimises weight balance in the hull and frees space inside the engine bay to help maximise storage capacity.

Large single 60mm throttle body. Digital fuel injection provides great throttle response, smooth engine performance and quick acceleration, as well as easy starting and excellent fuel economy. Four-orifice, high-flow fuel injectors provide efficient combustion.

  • Strong engine provides 160 horsepower plus excellent low- and mid-range torque.
  • Dual overhead cams (DOHC) are light and compact for less valve train inertial mass.
  • Four large valves per cylinder provide better intake and exhaust flow for optimum torque and power.
  • Intake and exhaust valve lift as well as timing are set to reduce exhaust emissions.
  • 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, eliminates the need for scavenging pumps, and keeps the oil in the sump instead of flooding the crankcase if the craft capsizes.
  • Large capacity airbox lowers engine noise and improves air intake flow.

*Horsepower measured in PS at the crankshaft under controlled conditions. Actual performance may vary
