  1. I am not sure I got it: did Kaizen replace Pagoda (not tour)? It seems the lotus 124 with the new top sheet in white is still Pagoda. Why didn’t they make that kaizen if it is better?

  2. I get that Kaizen is replacing Pagoda for frontside, but is there no tour line this season? Was expecting a Kaizen Tour announcement or is the Pagoda Tour being carried through?

  3. I joined the DPS Dreamtime call last week and as far as I understood it:
    Kaizen 100, 105, 112
    Pagoda Tour 100, 106, 112
    Lotus Carbon 117 and 124
    Lotus 138
    Koala 103, 111, 118
