2012 Kawasaki Ultra 300X - what's up Yamaha's sleeve?

Kawasaki dominates the PWC industry with their Ultra 300X since last year. Will Yamaha have a new model to match? Wanted to buy a new Yamaha.

The new 2012 FX is just as good if not better in the rough as the Ultra models.

I agree, but the power of the 300 is totally out of yamaha's reach, the only downside of the kawasaki is the fuel consumption. I am a yamaha fan and in the market for a new one, but most of my buddies are on a kawi now due to the horsepower. Is yamaha going to introduce a newer and bigger engine soon?

Good question but I doubt it. Yamaha was never really in the horsepower war like Kawasaki and Sea-Doo was.

Dominates? Don't think so.

Well, I think your right about getting out of the hole. However, things are about to change next year. Nothing, and I mean nothing will be able to come close to a yamaha SVHO. Yami has taken the SHO to the next level.
