The Hull

Straight-line stability, handling performance and compactness, all expertly balanced. 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, triple KSD (Kawasaki Splash Deflector) 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, 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) 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

Looks that thrill, Modern styling includes an aggressive upper deck design that offers sharp looks to help minimise water intrusion into the gunwales for enhanced comfort. Elegant, sharp graphics ensure the STX 160X is a stand out on the water and instantly recognised as a Kawasaki Jet Ski.

Extensive Cruising Range

All day recreation that comes from having a 78 L fuel tank. Combined with excellent fuel economy and low emission, courtesy of digital fuel injection, means you can enjoy a longer day on the water.

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 STX 160X at full power.

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


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.
