Kawasaki Jet Ski Ultra 260LX (2009-)

Brief Summary

The new Kawasaki Jet Ski Ultra 260LX is one of the most powerful PWC on the water. Packing heat in the form of a 1,498cc 260-hp rated supercharged power plant, this high-end PWC was obviously designed for riders who know what they’re doing. At just over 7,700 rpms it produces a max thrust of 1,585 lbs. through its 155mm jet pump. Weighing in at 1,062.8 lbs. (wet) that’s a thrust-to-weight ratio greater than 1:1 -- can anyone say F/A-18 Hornet!? Kawasaki is #3 in sales but the company is trying to change that with this new machine that has to be fast out of the blocks. And the babes will love it. And, there’s plenty that we like under the hood, and only a few things we don’t.
