Strong, Light Hull Design:
Designed to emulate the performance of Kawasaki’s IJSBA championship-winning race machines, the reinforced inner bow is extremely light with ample strength to handle the engine’s power output.
Exemplary straight-line tracking and responsive handling in both calm and rough-water conditions set performance benchmarks for the class. The lower hull is specially designed to distribute the engine and power delivery loads over a wide area.
Deep-V hull design enables a steep bank angle for motorcycle-like turning performance. This reduces the lateral G-loads imposed on riders during turns, allowing them to better concentrate on riding. The 22.5° V-angle at the bottom of the hull helps reduce unwanted spinouts during sharp turns. This all assists in delivering the neutral handling and turning characteristics for which Kawasaki JET SKI watercraft are famous.
The bottom of the hull slants upward steeply from the center section to the bow, so the 310LX can penetrate swells and waves with less shock, pushing through waves rather than bouncing over them at high speeds. Integrated sponsons extend from the hull, providing wallow-free straight-line performance and contributing significantly to the 310LX’s excellent manoeuvrability while helping to retain the narrow hull design.
Sponsons extend from the hull to provide stable straight line performance (e.g. porpoising from start is minimised) while helping to retain the machine’s narrow overall design. They also contribute significantly to the superb manoeuvrability when changing direction (particularly at higher speeds).
