    thanks.
    Good details too. I noted they didn't list a weight for the 250LX or the capacity of either.

    Cool, but looking at the photos of the ski in action, that new hull looks to have a lot of wetted area even at top speed. The nose seems down and pushing through the water, not over it. With no trim, this ski may only be a 65-68 MPH machine. I sure hope not!
    Also, Kawi never says its the "Fastest" pwc, only the most powerfull and quickest (meaning accelleration, not speed).
    Hopefull soon (like at WF) someone will post true numbers for this machine.

    I agree

    I think this ski is definitely a wedge candidate

    I agree that Kawi did tone down the adjectives used in the downloadable version 23 September. The language used on the website makes it less of a "king" oF PWC.

    The Ultra hull rides a lot like the GTX/RXT hulls in that it uses too much hp to push it through the water. No planing hull should have to muscle its way through the water, it should skim on top of it. I'll bet the ski is a gasoline glutton !

    ultra250

    an engineer at kawasaki said the 250 hp and speeds there getting out of the ultra 250 was the most they could get with (87 OCTANE FUEL)so that tells me it is set up conservative and has much room for more.

    That must be wet. They specify much lower dry. I picked up the pamplet somewhere. The Ultra250 dry with all the extra hardware is 904.

    negative,i spoke with him today 920 is dry! are you guys ready? 1160 lbs with all fluids. he also told me with all fluids and gas tank full the ultra 250 will do 65 maybe alittle more and with 5 gallons of fuel it will do 70 or little better.
