    It was about a year ago when Honda started applying for patents for their 5 link suspension (and other things) and it looks like 2019 may be the year for the Honda sport. A 2020 Kawasaki Sport SxS would be on about the same schedule.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what they bring to the table. It can only mean good things for the SxS market and more importantly, the prices! :D

    The 2020 Kawasaki sport side by side is COMING!

    I hope they are! I like the current Kawasaki's and how heavy they are built. I would love to see a sportier option.

    I bought a new Kawasaki KLR 650 several years back....never again...oil burning..loose tolerances..wires grounding to frame...total POS no support from Kawa for warranties.

    Kawasaki’s Teryx is known for being extremely dependable.

    2013 XP 800 Ranger, Three 2017 Polaris 570 Full Sizes. All subjected to hard ranch work, long hours and rough conditions. 5 years or bust!

    Kawi builds some great machines no doubt. I'd love to have an excuse to own a second sxs just to compare it against the Ranger!

    Sounds like you had a lemon or something. All the kaw’s I have seen are really nice heavy built machines.
