    Looked at some Kawi's while killing time in TN this past week

    I've been looking hard at the Ultra LX's for touring capability...best I can tell from my research they are it, especially if you aren't a fan of Yamaha or Seadoo.

    I currently have a pair of Honda F-12's, so my comparisons are somewhat based on those. From what I saw in the showroom, the Kawi's have better fit and finish than Yamaha but not as good as Honda. I liked that they lined the whole front end to get the storage numbers, although the "glove box" was really small. The biggest complaint I have is the reverse lever...it felt like it was made of recycled cardboard. I love it on the left, but flimsy as hell.

    The new one with sound system looked great...love the Kawi green. Too bad the 14 LX barely has any green.

    Just curious what others thoughts are...with Honda out of the game I plan on going Kawasaki in the future for many reasons.

    If I were buying new, Kawi would be my choice.

    Yeah, I looked at them at our boat show last month. The Kawi green really is a sweet colour.

    If you get an ultra you won't be sorry. Wether you get a 310 or a NA ultra it is night and day difference from your Hondas in the rough water. You will also have more range, more storage, and another ski!

    I agree. Still trying to find out the cruising range though...seems to be a mystery.

    Here is the FaceBook link for this year's Bahamas trip. So, you'd better figure it out quick!
