Brief Summary

The Kawasaki 1100 STX D.I. is a three-passenger cruiser that is faster, smoother and more comfortable than many conventional PWC’s. With 130-hp under the hood she is up and running and ready for high-speed donuts.

Key Features

The 1100 STX D.I. has a soft two-piece seat, which is ideal for two adults and a child. The rear boarding deck is also bigger with a non-skid surface and room for a cooler. This jet skis’ digital helm has multiple readouts, including speed, tach, an hour meter, trip meter and a clock. There are separate gauges for fuel and oil levels and it has a magnetic keyed ignition to deter theft. Under the front storage hatch and under the seat there is a total of 23.5 gallons of space. And the large tow-eye will let you pull a skier or wakeboarder behind. Our test showed that, —thanks to her direct fuel injection she starts right up with no need to choke.

Captain's Report

Kawasaki's new 1100 STX D.I. might look like a 3-passenger cruiser, but its 1,071-cc engine with direct fuel injection turns it into a speed demon. It's also one of the cleanest jet skis on the water today.The 1100 STX D.I. has FICHT fuel injection which the company says reduces emissions by up to 60 percent while burning 1/3 less fuel and half as much oil . But we haven't lost any speed--in fact, this year's 1100 is faster than last year's carbureted version. But the most important compartment is the triple-cylinder engine which delivers 130-hp, and the secret to this jet ski’s performance is the FICHT fuel injector which sprays tiny, computer-controlled bursts of fuel directly into the chamber, delivering more precise combustion and fewer emissions.Out on the water, we found handling to be excellent. The deep-V hull tracks straight and turns on a dime, and this jet bike excels in rough water, even with multiple riders. It rides very dry, thanks to its newly designed sponsons and hull strakes.During our speed tests the STX D.I. instantly jumped on plane and hit a heart-pounding top speed of 52 mph, but Kawasaki says it has hit 56.8 mph in ideal conditions. At just over 10 feet and weighing 678 lbs., the 1100 STX D.I. is a big PWC, but because it's so fuel-efficient the fuel tank is smaller than most other bikes of this size and that means savings for you at the fuel pump.For more information please call (949) 460-5688 or visit
