    how will the new 09 IS model compete with the 250x in off shore riding

    IMHO i think the IS models are the perfect rivals for the 250x when it comes to off shore riding because some of the features that this thing offers and the things it can do it may actually be a better off shore craft than the 250x, well this is my opinion what do you guys think?

    i think the suspension will help with ride comfort but over all i think it will end up causing problems too

    The stepped hull and increased length will help it in this area, the suspension will hurt if it winds up being buggy.

    If the suspension doesnt work SD will just come out with a non-suspension model of the same craft.

    Well, I'm a Kawi guy and I think the IS has a lot of potential. Of course, having not riden one it's easy to say that.

    Yeah I dont think anyone knows right now but just looking at stats it should be a great offshore boat.

    Imagine throwing a turbo on that sucker and doing some good offshore racing... oh yeah!
