the only thing I like about that bike is that is has a 530 chain on it, and this comes from a guy who owns 2 Kawasaki STX 12F jet skies. Those skies are rock solid but they are NA, the superchargers have really muddied the waters on reliability vs performance. Used to be that only a mechanically inclined person would have a forced-fed motor and they were willing to trade reliability for performance, now everyone wants both and they can't even change their own oil.
Kawasaki officially announced Dec 1st that the new SX will be sold in the US. Price is slightly less than anticipated. $19,000 for base SX and $22,000 for the SE model. Go to Kaeasaki's website for more info.
Chat board popped up the day after the official word it's coming to the US. People getting excited about the new sport touring model. Will probably start showing up at US dealerships around March/April 2018.
