August 19 – Bellingham, Washington; Kona dealers came out to Bellingham for the 2012 Kona Luau – to help us launch our 2012 range in the USA last week. They test rode the new Entourage, Honzo, and Satori. Here’s what they had to say about the new and improved 2012 Operator:

“Eats up everything you point it at”
“Liked the geometry, ride quality and brakes”
“Smooth ride, sucked up big hits, quick handling”
“I liked everything, especially the maneuverability”
“My first time on an Operator. Gravity riding rocks”
“I love the stiffness of the new frame, I wouldn’t change anything”
