Suspension will be available for the seat,Deck lift is the easiest ive tried,you could lift it with one hand.
I have a hard time believing that's a Epa thing, that maybe the only way they can pass emmisions.

I know that Kubota is looking to add Kawi engines to the lineup but they are not the easiest to work with and get options customized for their business. I think you might see some Kawi's in an upcoming smaller ZTR based on the ZG100 based on the rumors I've heard.

For the ZG/ZD300, currently they are redesigning the entire unit in Japan so don't expect to see a new 300 series for another year or so.

I heard spring of 2014 for the 300 and the 200 in 2015.
