    Looking to purchase new Ferris this year. What motor would you select Vanguard or Kawaski (DFI)? I currently have been running Kaw but need your input on the difference. Thanks

    While I have always been a Kawi guy, I've been very impressed with my Vanguard. Im even going out on a limb and saying I'll be buying many more. Ive had no issues, plenty of power and very reliable. Only down side is they drink some gas!

    I own both and hands down love all my vanguards. Personally the vanguards use less fuel then my Kawasaki does. Both are good, I just prefer the vanguard.

    I've been a big Kawi fan for a very long time, but anymore if I have a choice when buying, I'll take the Vanguard first.
