I stopped into a shop today as I am planning on buying a 300 in the next two or three months. The salesman recently sold the black one I wanted, but had an SE in stock. Anyway, he made a comment that he wouldn't be getting anymore 300s in for the forseeable future. He stated that Kawasaki won't be shipping anymore 300s this YEAR, but they didn't tell him why...my bs meter was pinging the entire conversation. On the other hand, I can't see where he would really have anything to gain from telling me that since there are two other Kawi dealers within 30 miles....I'll be checking tomorrow.
