Blazing speed runs and high-G turns are a blast, but there’s a lot to be said for touring. Long rides give you a chance to soak up the scenery, relax and unwind. That’s where the Kawasaki 900 STX comes in.
Everything about the 900 STX says “distance.” The three-up watercraft has a deep-V hull with a deep keel and long strakes for a softer ride. It comes with a 100-horsepower, 891-cc engine.
By today’s standards, that’s mild power. It’s also fuel-efficient. That efficiency combined with the watercraft’s 14-gallon fuel capacity and 1.30-gallon oil capacity makes for great range. The engine’s power band also makes the watercraft ideal for towing wakeboarders, water-toy riders and water-skiers.
With range comes a need for gear stowage space. The 900 STX has 23 gallons of it.
Operating features include a reverse mode for easy docking and rearview mirrors. Instrumentation is digital, and includes a speedometer, tachometer, fuel- and oil-level gauges, a trip meter and a digital clock. A glove box is in the podium ahead of the saddle, and in forward stowage compartment, there’s a tool kit in a waterproof canister.
