Kawasaki unveils 2010 line
Kawasaki has unveiled its 2010 lineup, and the six boats named — the Ultra 260LX, Ultra 260X, Ultra LX, STX-15F, STX and 800 SX-R — are identical to that found in the brand’s ’09 line. The typical graphic and color options have taken place, with notable changes being a classy metallic titanium now gracing the entry-minded STX-15F and a bold new black-and-lime look for the 800 standup.
While the line may be no big surprise, Kawasaki’s pricing definitely made news.
