It isn’t every day that you find a brand new 1995 Kawasaki JetSki X2 still in the crate, especially one that is more than two decades old. Well, that is exactly what Belgian Team AJ Performance did according to a recent Facebook post on the team’s page.
Simply stated as “Brand New,” the team posted a series of pictures of the beautiful hybrid ski still in its original crate with only a peek view of the factory cover pulled back. Untouched and still brand new with zero hours, we can even see the factory drape with the bold “Kawasaki” letters and the infamous logo “Let The Good Times Roll.” We don’t hear much about these vintage ski’s anymore these days, but AJ Performance seems to be all these Kawasaki X2 JetSkis as we have covered some of their previous X2 conversion work.
The Kawasaki X2 hybrid jet ski that was basically a blend between a stand-up ski hull and a narrow, fixed-steering sit-down (but don’t call it a “couch”). When it was first introduced, it came with a 652cc, 52-horsepower engine and it was the first time a JetSki featured adjustable handlebars and trim. By 1995, the X2 was still powered by a water-cooled, two-stroke twin producing 52HP at 6,000 rpm via an axial flow pump but also marked the last production year of the “old body style.” We are not sure where this team found such a pristine machine, but it definitely seems like they lucked out while on a hunt!
