    That blue is sweet! I love how the 15f has been made for 8 years, nearly unchanged. Talk about good model turnover, I say it all the time but I love that stx hull.

    I hope there is still an LX version that just forgot to get mentioned. If discontinued I will really be upset. I am really hoping they will put the NA engine in the new hull with the trim and cruise.
    If they are coming out this early I am sure no changes so they must feel their product is just fine.

    4 Models? Actually 3; the 15F doesn't count it's a carry over. That hull has been around since 1998, C'mon. YAM has at least 10 models which provides a model that can satisfy just about anybody.

    But that 300 does look good in Yamaha Blue!

    I wish KAW would appeal to a broader market. Not everyone wants / needs a 300 HP model. The 300's target market is very narrow . . .

    True, The mounts are slightly different on the older models but I was talking about the top deck as well, which other than a seat change on the 15f and a hood and seat change for the 12f has remained unchanged. The 12f actually goes back to the d.i. skis and the original stxr. I completely agree with you on the need for more models. I think that the 15f is a good low maintenance ski but it needs more punch stock. It would be awesome if they shortened it and made a 2 seat hull that looks more like the ultra. Add all this with a big 2 liter motor and you have a recipe for an awesome line.

    Some may disagree but I think that the 15f and 12f are still some of the best looking skis out, I just love the simplicity of the lines.

    Little correction.
    1. Same hull sicne 1997 1100 STX.
    2. 2012 15F has new pump/bearing setup which is the best ever upgrade since its introduction in 2004.

    It looks like the green that was on the 2010 260x.
    I was informed today that the 2012 ultra 300x and ultra 300lx will be equiped with a high tec emm recorder on them.If you have a engine failure or warranty work done your dealer has to the plug your emm up to there computer and send the info to Kawasaki techs.If there has been any kind of speed limiter overrides or boost increases it will void your warranty. I dont even think local dealers will be able to read the emm recorder. only Kawasaki techs!! not sure of all the details but this much im pretty sure of.

    I'm pretty sure current 300X have a faulty or freeze frame in the ECU.
    Just need KDS to be able to read it.

    I don't care anyway my warranty has been void brand new since I don't have a Kawi dealer in my country hahaha!

    And yes for the color, I liked that one!
