ENTRY POWERFUL SPORTS

This new series was developed as a successor to the JET SKI STX-160 LX personal watercraft. It inherits the well-known powerful engine and excellent straight-running handling of the STX hull, while at the same time adopting a new design that combines a comfortable riding position with ease of handling. For first-time PWC owners, this model compares favorably to competitor models as it has been reborn with an engine that boasts even higher output and excellent manoeuvrability combined with a new deck design. The new model can be adapted for a variety of situations (family outings, recreation, cruising/touring, and so on). The newly added functions are mainly designed to make touring easier, more comfortable, and more enjoyable.

THE HULL

The STX Hull has been supported by a large number of users for many years with front triple KSD (Kawasaki Splash Deflector) to prevent splashing and side bumper fins to enhance the rectifying effect.

RIDE COMFORT

Ridges across the bottom of the bow, Kawasaki Splash Deflectors deflect water splashing forward from under the hull of the STX160X.

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.

SPONSONS & SIDE BUMPER FINS

Ridges across the bottom of the bow, Kawasaki Splash Deflectors deflect water splashing forward from under the hull of the STX160X.

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.

GRAPHICS AND STYLE

Elegant style with a sleek and dynamic feel allows for a more relaxed riding experience, having reviewed various riding positions. Improved operability with the left reverse lever and expanded the area of the rear platform.

EXTENSIVE CRUISING RANGE

The new body work efficiently secures space and expands the fuel tank capacity from 62 L to 78 L, giving it the largest capacity in its class. Combined with engine characteristics that allow for good fuel efficiency, it is now possible to go touring for longer than ever.

KAWASAKI SLO-MODE

Smart Learning Operation (SLO)-Mode function allows newer riders to become familiar with the handling and response of this JET SKI watercraft at a more relaxed pace before operating the STX160X at full power.

Two separate keys (one for SLO-mode, one for full-power operation) prevent operating mistakes.

REVERSE

The reverse lever, located on the left side for easy operation, features a new ergonomic design (for both the lever itself and the lock-release button) and offers much lighter operation.
