Back in early August, The Watercraft Journal reported that Kawasaki’s European division had not only published the entirety of the 2019 JetSki lineup, but had updated its website with all of the press photos revealing all of the new colors and graphics for the new model year. Unfortunately, that was the entirety of the reveal: new graphics and colors.
Of course, the 2019 JetSki SX-R looks rather fetching in all black-and-green (the green hood and black handlepole replacing the previous white versions). And exclusive to the US markets is the Ultra 310X Special Edition (SE), which comes in easily, the most creatively-named JetSki color ever: Ebony/Candy Steel Furnace Orange. C’mon, man. That’s a heck of a name!
Here’s the original JetSki press release from Kawasaki Motor Corp. USA:
Kawasaki continues to offer a wide range of personal watercraft that evoke fun on the water, with the 2019 JET SKI Ultra series. The watercraft lineup also includes the Kawasaki JET SKI SX-R, a four-stroke stand-up personal watercraft.
The JET SKI SX-R personal watercraft produces twice the power of Kawasaki’s previous stand-up model while also delivering plenty of low-to-mid-range torque. This makes the stand-up personal watercraft fun and accessible to those without a competition license. The 2019 JetSki SX-R watercraft stands out in performance and fun on the water with a new Ebony/Lime Green colorway with a MSRP of $9,999.
The entire JET SKI watercraft runabout lineup is forged with Kawasaki DNA and features powerful 1,498cc engines, an innovative deep-V hull design, a large amount of storage and a fuel tank capable of extended range. The entire lineup is also covered by a 12-month limited warranty with an optional 12, 24, 36 or 48-month Kawasaki Protection Plus plan.
The flagship model, the 2019 Kawasaki JET SKI Ultra 310LX personal watercraft, is the perfect combination of performance and luxury. The JET SKI Ultra 310LX features a roots-type Eaton Twin Vortices Series (TVS) supercharger. A three-blade impeller that is directly driven from the engine, provides superb propulsion, powering the watercraft’s deep-V hull that offers class-leading stability in rough water. This model also features the JETSOUND audio system, a first in personal watercraft, which allows riders to listen to music via the 2×20-watt rated amplifier and 30-watt speakers. For 2019, the JET SKI Ultra 310LX watercraft is available in Ebony/Candy Lime Green with a MSRP of $17,999.
The Kawasaki JET SKI Ultra 310R personal watercraft is the ultimate open-water race replica vehicle in the Kawasaki model line. It features the same 1,498cc supercharged engine as the JET SKI Ultra 310LX model. It also sports a motocross-style electro-polished stainless steel handlebar inspired by the Kawasaki KX motorcycles. The JET SKI Ultra 310R personal watercraft features an Ebony/Lime Green color scheme with a MSRP of $16,299.
Power is the most common trait among the Kawasaki JET SKI Ultra 310 series, and the 2019 Ultra 310X and Ultra 310X SE models share the same unmistakable supercharged inline 1,498cc four-cylinder DOHC engine with its Eaton TVS supercharger and intercooler. For rider comfort and versatility, the JET SKI Ultra 310X features a bench seat, while the JET SKI 310X SE comes equipped with race-inspired graphics and a sport-styled seat. The 2019 JET SKI Ultra 310X is available in Ebony/Sunbeam Red with a MSRP of $15,299, and the Jet Ski Ultra 310X SE comes in an Ebony/Candy Steel Furnace Orange scheme with a MSRP of $15,799.
For riders who want the luxury and convenience of the flagship JET SKI Ultra 310LX, the 2019 Kawasaki JET SKI Ultra LX personal watercraft powered by a naturally aspirated 1,498cc engine is the right choice. The maneuverable deep-V hull contributes to superior handling, and the vehicle boasts industry-leading storage capacity and the largest fuel tank in its class to keep the fun going longer. The 2019 JET SKI Ultra LX is available in Ebony/Metallic Tungsten Gray with a MSRP of $11,199.
For flat-out fun, the 2019 Kawasaki JET SKI STX-15F personal watercraft is a popular choice for enthusiasts. Equipped with a powerful engine with digital fuel injection that provides great performance and an agile hull for sporty handling as well as comfortable ergonomics, the JET SKI STX-15F watercraft is great for someone looking to spend a lot of time on the water. The 2019 JET SKI STX-15F is available in Ebony/Lime Green with a MSRP of $9,699.
