    From my perpective you pay more for a stronger motor. The 23 kawi makes more torque than the other. From the mfg, I would bet it is because the Kawi cost more for them to buy.

    That's a good question and one we do hear from time to time. The answer is pretty simple really. The Kawasaki engine simply has a higher purchase price for us as and OEM.
