With a strong heritage in the stand-up watercraft segment and countless race wins and championships, Kawasaki has now moved the category to the next level with a four stroke,
1498cc four cylinder engine, making it the fastest accelerating mass-produced stand up ever. The SX-R has both the performance personality and rider features befitting a new benchmark which is set to “Ignite the fun”.
Superb cornering performance
Development of the new hull incorporated racing feedback. Its agile handling, complemented by great stability and increased power, allows higher cornering speed. Corner grip of the wellbalanced machine exceeds that of the 800 SX-R.
The handle pole is a reinforced version of that from the 800 SX-R (to ensure the durability to match the increased power and higher top speed). Its pivot was positioned to reduce the amount of forward/backward movement at the grips, to minimise rider fatigue, particularly during long races.
