The normally aspirated runabout model has the highly acclaimed liquid-cooled, 1,498 cm3 In-Line Four-cylinder Ninja supersport-based engine of the STX 160 Series but similarities end there. In addition to a deep-V hull, which offers a balance of smooth performance and precise handling in a variety of water conditions, above the waterline the ULTRA 160LX is loaded with innovative features and equipment such as electronic cruise control, power mode selection and launch control allied to innovations such as KSD (Kawasaki Splash Deflectors) tried and tested on the 2022 ULTRA 310 Series. Dynamic luxury styling shared with the supercharged flagship models drives home its position as class-leader in the normally aspirated runabout segment.
Completely redesigned from the deck up, the new ‘23 ULTRA 160LX model offers significantly higher levels of tech, comfort, and convenience than its predecessor, the ULTRA LX, making it a model of choice for touring in comfort and style. A new seat and foot well design contributes to more comfortable ergonomics and greatly facilitates stand-up riding, while taller bumpers offer increased splash protection. Additionally, Kawasaki Smart Reverse with Deceleration (KSRD) enables one-handed thrust control.
Storage and docking convenience are at premium levels with several Easy-Access storage compartments along with Easy-Access cleats allowing efficient docking. Another stand out trim feature for 2023 are LED bumper mounted accent lights which add a stylish touch while increasing craft awareness while afloat.
The 2023 ULTRA 160LX, LUXURY is destined to be supplied by Kawasaki Jet Ski dealers with an impressive spec list including a 7” TFT display, KSRD, Easy-Access Storage, Easy-Access Rear Pocket, Easy- Access Cleats, Multi- Mount Bars, cup holders, accent lights, a rear-view camera, and the ULTRA deck with built-in Multi-Mount Rails. Plus, there is also JETSOUND 4s as standard featuring no less than four speakers plus Bluetooth connectivity, the slim ERGO-FIT LXury Seat offering enhanced cruising comfort and three possible positions plus a stylish meter visor creating an additional touch of class cementing Kawasaki’s dominance of the normally aspirated personal watercraft class. With gold and brown wood tones, the 160LX offers a luxurious image like that of the supercharged flagship Jet Ski ULTRA 310LX.
