Kawasaki's advertisement smartly challenges its competitor head-on, using a direct comparison with the Honda Trail 90 to highlight the superior features of the Kawasaki Trail Boss. The dramatic visual of a rider traversing rough terrain emphasizes the bike's rugged capabilities. The copy's standout phrase, "If the Honda Trail 90 had a 10-speed transmission it would be almost as good as the Kawasaki Trail Boss," confidently asserts Kawasaki's superiority. By listing what the competitor lacks, such as "11.5 horsepower" and "Superlube automatic oil injection," the ad effectively communicates the Trail Boss's advantages. This direct comparison strategy likely resonates with potential buyers, positioning the Kawasaki Trail Boss as the obvious choice for those seeking top-tier performance and features.
