Who will take this year's TCO? Will Yamaha's new craft be a threat to the Kawasaki ULTRA platform or will the Kawasaki continue to dominate offshore racing? Yamaha, SeaDoo, Kawasaki? Who has the best equipment and bragging rights? For now, for offshore racing it remains the Kawasaki ULTRA 300X http://www.kawasaki.com/products/product-specifications.aspx?id=560
