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.

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