    Kawasaki Ultra 300x LX with Jet Sound - Is it worth it?

    Going to pick up my 2015 Ultra 310X SE today, confident it's the one I want. However, I have to admit.....I am curious about the LX's Jet Sound. Is this a feature I would kick myself around for not buying?

    Here are my concerns....

    • At high speeds, it's not loud enough
    • Letting it play with the engine not running will run down the battery
    • I would enjoy it at first, then stop listening to it
    • It's $2,000 more than the SE (for a stereo and color change)

    Dunno, I might do it if the local retail shop would reduce the LX's price to only a $1,000 difference. I think the gap is too wide for the only added feature of a stereo and green color.

    What do members here think about it?

    its more than stereo & colour

    and only you can say if its worth it .

    yes the stereo works great out in the real world
    and yes the seat is more comfortable
    yes the GPS mount is a great thing

    Read online more about the Jet Sound system. It turns itself off 3 minutes after the engine is killed. Spares the battery life, but also reduces effectiveness while taking a break. Only other complaint is buttons on the control head are too small, especially if you are wearing gloves.

    I like the idea of a more comfortable seat, however. Not sure I'd need the GPS mount feature, as I've never ridden a ski outside a known area and direction. Sure, it's a plus for true top speed measurements, but not sure I am into speed that hardcore to need an exact measurement. When it comes to speed, all I need to know is.....did I win the race.

    Stayed with the SE model. Had the dealer dropped the price of the LX $1,000 I would have upgraded. However, only $300.00 reduction was offered, so I passed. I did like the material of the LX seat over the SE though. I will upgrade mine soon.

    It's a local dealer in the Penascola, Florida area. John Kiley's cycle world. Russell is a stand up person who works there.
