For the first time since entering the personal watercraft market in 2002, Honda has built a brand new vehicle from stem to stern—the F-15X.
With a new, more powerful engine and a longer hull, the F-15X is Honda’s answer to the recent PWC innovations from Sea-Doo, Kawasaki and Yamaha.
The F-15X is powered by a new 16-valve 1,470cc turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is a big jump from the 1,235cc unit powering the F-12 series. Despite its power, Honda says the efficient, low-emissions 4-stroke design burns up less fuel than a comparable 2-stroke.
Maximum combustion efficiency and power is provided by high-pressure programmed fuel injection. Fuel is delivered through four laser-drilled holes in each of the four injector nozzles.
