Riptide Turquoise Colour
5 YEAR WARRANTY
Kawasaki JET SKI’s masterpiece, the STX series, has been fully remodeled. We have refreshed
the value of our long-selling sports personal watercraft, giving them a complete
overhaul for the new era, without any change to their basic performance. The
design has been renewed with the aim of improving comfort and upgrading
equipment, while maintaining engine power and maneuverability
(handling) from the predecessor.
2021 JET SKI STX 160X - Luxury, Performance and Efficiency
This new series was developed as a successor to the JET SKI STX-160X personal watercraft. It inherits the well-known powerful engine and excellent straight-running handling of the STX hull, while at the same time adopting a new design that combines a comfortable riding position with ease of handling. For first-time PWC owners this model compares favourably to competitor models as it has been reborn with an engine that boasts even higher output and excellent manoeuvrability combined with a new deck design. The new model can be adapted for a variety of situations (family outings, recreation, cruising/touring, and so on). The newly added functions are mainly designed to make touring easier, more comfortable, and more enjoyable.
- Smart Steering ensuring a smooth and controlled turn.
- New rider mode, Smart Learning Operation (SLO)-mode.
- High performance, 1,498cc 4 Cylinder, DOHC fuel injected and 4-stroke engine.
- New lighter throttle lever and the revers lever on the left side.
- Extended reboarding step.
- Spacious 114L Front and 67L Rear Storage, with Slide and lift opening system.
Refined Fun and Performance
While keeping the high-power engine and highly manoeuvrable hull, our goal was to create an even more appealing 3-seater PWC by offering a more comfortable riding position, increased number of easy-to-use functions, and a brand-new design.
The most significant change is the newly reborn style. By raising the overall height of the hull and extending the rear portion of the bumper, we created a sporty shape with flowing lines and massive feel. By maintaining a relationship with the ULTRA series
in terms of design, the watercraft has an impressive styling that can be recognised as a brand-new STX at a glance.
The STX Hull has been supported by a large number of users for many years with front triple KSD (Kawasaki Splash Deflector) to prevent splashing and side bumper fins to enhance the rectifying effect.

Ridges across the bottom of the bow, Kawasaki Splash Deflectors deflect water splashing forward from under the hull of the STX160X.
The fourth splash deflector mounted at the top reduces spray during high-speed turns. Whether turning or blasting straight ahead, at high speeds or low, the Quattro KSD minimises spray, enhancing ride comfort.
Sponsons & Side Bumper Fins
Sponsons extending from the hull and fins along the underside of the side bumpers provide stable straight-line performance (e.g. porpoising from start is minimised, etc) while helping to retain the machine’s narrow overall design. They also contribute significantly to the ST160X's high manoeuvrability when changing direction (particularly at higher speeds).
Graphics and Style
Elegant style with a sleek and dynamic feel allows for a more relaxed riding experience, having reviewed various riding positions. Improved operability with the left reverse lever and expanded the area of the rear platform.

Extensive Cruising Range
The new body work efficiently secures space and expands the fuel tank capacity from 62 L to 78 L, giving it the largest capacity in its class. Combined with engine characteristics that allow for good fuel efficiency, it is now possible to go touring for longer than ever.
Smart Learning Operation (SLO)-Mode function allows newer riders to become familiar with the handling and response of this JET SKI watercraft at a more relaxed pace before operating the STX160X at full power.
Two separate keys (one for SLO-mode, one for full-power operation) prevent operating mistakes.
The reverse lever, located on the left side for easy operation, features a new ergonomic design (for both the lever itself and the lock-release button) and offers much lighter operation.
