Increased compression ratio, new high-lift cams and revised ignition timing help boost the 1,498cc engine’s output by 10 horsepower. Combined with a new impeller to translate that enhanced power into thrust, the new 260X can accelerate harder than ever; delivering an electrifying ride that’ll thrill even the most jaded PWC enthusiast!
In addition to more power and acceleration, than any other production watercraft on the planet, the Ultra 260X also boasts a race-developed hull. Its precise handling and superb stability are equally impressive, thanks to a hull specifically designed to capitalize on the engine’s awesome performance.
The fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) hull is loaded with DNA from Kawasaki’s IJSBA championship winning machines. This includes carefully designed sponsions and chines for enhanced straight-line stability and more precise cornering, combined with a 22.5° deep-V hull that leans into corners like a motorcycle. This provides a smoother ride in rough water, reduces the lateral G-loads generated during turns, and helps keep the rider in control.
