Loaded with technology from championship winning machines, the
race-developed hull handles with precision and stability, with
a high level of seaworthiness.
Sturdy hull has very stable handling characteristics for comfortable all-day touring. The ULTRA LX is equipped with the LXuryseat, a scalloped seat designed for enhanced cruising comfort.
The ULTRA LX gets more aggressive styling care of a redesigned front face with more edged contours. Intake-style design at the bow contributes to the powerful, aggressive image. Front hatch has a flatter design, conveying an image of speed.
Complete re-evaluation of hull thickness resulted in idealised strength balance and significant weight reduction. Curb mass is now a trim 462 kg.
Sponsons extending from the hull and fins along the underside of the side bumpers provide stable straight-line performance (e.g. porpoising from start is minimised, etc) while helping to retain the machine’s narrow overall design.
Kicking out an impressive 160 PS at 7,500 rpm, the liquid-cooled, 1,498 cm3 In-line 4-Cylinder Ninja supersport-based engine delivers the responsive performance that sport riders love. In spite of its high performance, this ultra-low emissions PWC easily clears the stringent CARB regulations.
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.
