Kawasaki Jet Ski discounts: Now $2000 off until 30 April 2024

Kawasaki Jet Ski has increased discounts to $2000 on all 2022 and 2023 models in Australia, effectively undoing the most recent round of price rises.

Kawasaki Jet Ski Australia has extended the discount campaign it launched last year and increased the savings from $1500 to $2000.

All 2022 and 2023 Kawasaki Jet Skis – including SX-R ‘stand-up’, STX 160, Ultra 160 and Ultra 310 models – are now eligible for a $2000 discount from 1 February to 30 April 2024 while stock lasts.

The sharp discounts mark a significant turnaround following years of stock restrictions and price rises during the global pandemic.

Industry data shows sales of Jet Skis and personal watercraft in Australia hit reverse in 2023 – down by a staggering 24 per cent compared to the prior year.

The year 2022 was an all-time record for Jet Ski and personal watercraft sales in Australia, falling just short of 10,000 deliveries across all three brands – Sea-Doo, Yamaha WaveRunner and Kawasaki Jet Ski.

However, Kawasaki still only has about 5 per cent of the Australian Jet Ski and personal watercraft market – despite the introduction of a new Ultra 160 and a new Ultra 310 over the past two years.

Kawasaki Jet Ski Australia kicked off its latest round of discounts at the 2023 Sydney Boat Show last August – and then made the $1500 discount offer available to all customers nationally from September through to the end of December 2023.

After Kawasaki Australia did not clear enough stock during the peak of the summer season – in January 2024 – it upped the ante and increased the discount to $2000 across all remaining 2022 and 2023 models.

The latest round of discounts have effectively undone the most recent round of Kawasaki Jet Ski price rises – with the exception of the Ultra 160 which is still about $6500 to $8000 dearer than its predecessor due to significant changes associated with the latest model upgrade.

Buyers can also choose to opt out of the $2000 discount and instead apply for 4.99 per cent interest-rate finance through Kawasaki Australia.

However, the finance offer requires a minimum deposit of 20 per cent of the purchase price of the Jet Ski, and the repayment period is two or three years.

According to the Kawasaki Jet Ski Australia website, the $2000 discount on eligible models expires on 30 April 2024 or while stocks last.

The most recent price rises across the entire Kawasaki Jet Ski line-up in Australia – and the latest discounts – are listed below.

Prices shown exclude trailer and registration –  and arbitrary dealer delivery fees (which are negotiable).
