The Jet Ski Ultra 310 is the most powerful production personal watercraft in the world. Offering three-passenger seating and premium technology, this series can cover both leisure cruises on the lake and off-shore ocean racing. It contains class-leading fuel capacity and storage for all your needs.
The Ultra 310’s 1,498cc, in-line four marine engine is boosted by a high-tech Eaton Twin Vortices Series (TVS) supercharger; you’ll also find 212-litres of fully sealed storage space in this model series. Kawasaki’s championship-winning race machines inspired the 310’s advanced deep-V hull design – with a 22.5° hull angle, you can cut through waves without minimal shock. When turning, notice the tuned sponsons which help provide straight-line stability and high-grip performance. Don’t forget the Electric Trim-Control (ETC) system! This advanced feature allows a ride to change handling characteristics. The ETC controls jet pump nozzle angle to adjust hull attitude for both specific water surface conditions and riding style.
Available in ebony/atomic silver and contains several features. Enjoy Kawasaki Smart Steering system (KSS), a Cruise Control which allows the rider to stop constantly applying the throttle, and a 5-position adjustable handlebar, a JETSOUND Audio System, GPS mount, and luxury seat with heat-resistant material.
This model series contains an Economical Riding Indicator, a function that indicates when current riding conditions are consuming a low amount of fuel. Pair this feature with the Fuel Economy Assistance Mode which switches the ECU to a leaner fuel map and will prioritize fuel economy. Riders will also note this model’s environmental benefits: Kawasaki’s fully electronic throttle actuation system makes a significant contribution to reduced emissions, plus offers all-digital instrumentation. The list includes speedometer, tachometer (digital display or bar graph), max speed, fuel consumption, external water temperature, air temperature, clock, time/trip/hour meters, fuel gauge, boost meter, trim indicator, warning indicators, and Economical Riding Indicator.
