Thread: Arriving ?????

  1. #1

    Arriving ?????

    Not to start trouble but why is it that only one guy got a boat. You mean to tell me that Kawi only released this one boat to one dealer and only one guy got it.

    Was this unit a new production unit or a pre-production. Where are his pics. Why is he saying nothing new.

    Im just wondering because we have some big hitters in here that cant get close to one. Then only one pops up??????

    If the production is being delivered then guys all over would be chirping in the data. We only have one???? I think I smell a turd, but I could be wrong.

    HA HA HA HA HA.

    Easy big fella. Easy.

    I think it's for real. My dealer CALLED me, last week and told me about his shipping invoice from Kawi. Remember, this is the holiday season, and there have been some blizzards and stuff between Lincoln Nebraska and their distribution sites.

    It's gonna happen this week or next for every dealer that gets one boat.

    Lincoln Nebraska Kawasaki plant has has major issues in the past with the "Lean Manufacturing" workforce. I hope these issues are in the past and the quality is those Ultra's.

    Ya Probably, Its just odd that no one but one person for over a week.

    There will always be me calling a bluff and at times I get caught with All-in.

    Just sitting back waiting for mine to come on in. Im kinda in the after the MAD-MAN-HOLIDAY-RUSH hang-over. Not much energy left.......

    Riva ordered 150 Ultras and was told that only about 40 will be delivered in the 2007 model year. Kawi is going to have to work round the clock to try and fill the early orders, to say nothing of what might happen as the ski catches on. I hope quality doesn't take a hit....rushing to make stuff usually takes a toll on it. The 2 skis per dealer is fact. They will get one 250X and one LX. A local dealer was promised them by the first week in January. If the 250 is a blue one, she's mine, otherwise I'll have to wait till February, or pay more where I have a back up deposit placed.

    This is Interesting!

    That's a pretty startling piece of info, that Riva can only get 40 out of a 150 unit order for all of 2007!
    That's very un Japanese like......they will run 4 shifts a day if demand warrant s it!
    I'm glad I worked with Way2Fast and got a deposit in early and hopefully that dealer will give that blue one to me first since I deserve it more.....

    Based on the Riva stat, what's the build projection for the 07 Ultra? 5,000 units for total US??

    Maybe this means that they will not compromise the quality. Make what they can but make sure the quality is there. Roger

    Kawasaki tied the amount of Ultras you could get to a percentage of your
    total Kawi order.

    So, if you a multi line dealer you may not get many.
