The last couple of years there has been much speculation on what the next big player in the snowmobile market will be. Honda of course being the biggest. The one name I have not heard is Kawasaki? To me they would be a more logical choice over Honda due to the fact that they were once in the business and could easily take the old designs and make new? To few of us remember the 1982 550 Intercepter. If that sled had been produced with IFS and a good rear suspension They may not even have got out of the market. Not to mention they also have some pretty awesome 4 stroke bike engines that would give The folks at Yamaha a real scare!!!! !!!
