Kawi 250X "R"
Gentlemen, please let me know if anyone has heard anything from the rumor mill regarding when and if Kawi will go to market with the R version of the ULTRA250. Again - Rumor (only rumor at this point). Hearing that they will be coming out with a lighter version of the 250 with some performance related modifications. Anyone know anything? Thanks

- It would probably be outside the USCG agreement. The existing Ultra is already at the 65 mph limit
- Historically, KAW does not re vamp a model that has only been on the market 2 model years
- KAW has never sold a true race boat to the general public. In truth, the stx-r was just the Ultra 150 motor in an old stx hull. So I would classify that boat as a "parts bin" boat (don't get me wrong, loved the stx-r; had 2 of them).
I would expect KAW as well as YAM to continue to cater to the "general watercraft market" in the years to come. With a few models like the Ultra SC slipping through to satisfy the performance oriented folks like us. I could be wrong . . . . as with everything, time will tell! jb

hopefully it will be like the '03-'04 mustang cobras where you get a 360hp machine and throw a whipple supercharger on there pulley it down and now you have a 600+ monster...yami guys are already seeing this...the SHO has undiscovered potential that will make it a monster...everyone will eventually follow...
