Refined Fun and Performance

While keeping the high-power engine and highly manoeuvrable hull, our goal was to create an even more appealing 3-seater PWC by offering a more comfortable riding position, increased number of easy-to-use functions, and a brand-new design.
The most significant change is the newly reborn style. By raising the overall height of the hull and extending the rear portion of the bumper, we created a sporty shape with flowing lines and massive feel. By maintaining a relationship with the ULTRA series
in terms of design, the watercraft has an impressive styling that can be recognised as a brand-new STX at a glance.

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

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. They also contribute significantly to the ST160X's high manoeuvrability when changing direction (particularly at higher speeds).

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 STX 160X has a massive 78 L fuel tank. Combined with the 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.

Storage Capacity

114L is available for front storage and 16.7 L for rear storage. the central storage (1.4L) has a waterproof compartment and is suitable for storing smartphones,
