Kawasaki STX 160LX

Kawasaki STX 160LX

The other key however is for the SLO, or Smart Learning Operation. This essentially cuts power by 30% and is an ideal mode for less experienced users to get used to the machine. It is also equipped with various other safety features and limiters, making it perfect for waters with restrictions.

With all these comfort features you would think that this is more of a cruiser jet ski, but not quite. The Sea Doo GTI SE is powered by by one of two versions of the Rotax 1630 ACE engine. You can pick between a 170hp engine (reaching 56mph) or a 130hp engine (reaching 50mph.) This is an ideal machine for those looking to combine luxury and performance.
