Thread: Kawi 250X "R"

    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

    I don't think we see that boat for the following reasons:

    - 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...
