    Gallery: Introducing Ligier Sportís Rotax-Powered JS900



    As 2014 spools down and the financial reports trickle in, the news is unilaterally good: sales of new personal watercraft are up and by a significant margin. According to a recent report by Powersports Business, that number is upwards to 30 percent. With a swathe of new products, improved powertrains and new accessories and features, 2014 was a fantastic year for new PWC. But what ever happened to the ski that started it all, the standup jet ski?

    Currently, Yamaha is the lone survivor producing a minimum 500 SuperJets a year. The solitary ski still employs Yamaha’s 701cc two-cylinder, two-stroke and is available for purchase only after a customer produces a racer’s registration card (or IJSBA number). The once Hydrospace has traded hands again from Benelli to Belassi, and despite a full lineup of skis and full-sized runabouts, none are available for commercial purchase in the United States.

    I'd molest the crap out of that ski

    I don't know the weight of the ACE-900, but I'm really impressed with the 297LBS they claim. That is SJ territory with a 61X/62T engine that weights 82lbs (with elec/box).

    Comparing it to the other 3rd party manufacturers is unfortunate since almost all others make "one trick pony" style riding standups. This one actually looks like a good all around ski and one that can actually turn.

    2011 was the last year from the company that invented the sport. Strict emission laws...

    The only reason the SuperJet is allowed to be sold is because its listed as "for competition use only" - Having said that, the ('08+) newer SJ is essentially a smaller, lighter SXR. Its the best Yamaha has done!
