NY Boat Show - Where's Kawasaki?
Just attended the show at the Javits Center today, after walking through huge displays at Sea Doo and Yamaha where they practically have every model on display, I stumbled across the Kawasaki display. They have no signage and 2 - 300's and 1 -15F on display. In fact the 15F is displayed almost vertical to save room. The vendors selling "sham-wow" and the likes had a bigger display!
I don't understand how they think they are going to get people to consider their products when their 2 competitors have huge displays and a ton on people looking at them. Being a Kawasaki owner, this is kind of sad.

Where was this? I didn't even see that! I was wondering where their display was.

I wish Kawasaki would consider getting into the jet boat market. Of course, SeaDoo failed at it, but they built junk. Yamaha is dominating the recreational boating market now, but they could use some competition.
Instead, they got into the power tool business, and their tools suck.

For the record, I purchased my 15F in the spring of 2008 on the recommendation of the mechanic/shop owner (who later became a Honda PWC dealer) who explained that the Kawi had "more bang for the buck" than the comparable VX I was considering and was the same price at the same dealership.
I'm glad I followed his advice.
