It probably has more to do with the rarity or exclusivity of the product (low supply, great demand). I don't think any vendor out there imports them by the truckload, so obviously they can't sell them at discount prices.
Importing a product is one thing, but when said item is premium, it has to be priced accordingly. KMs are no el-cheapo chinese hookahs yo.
Think about this: if you can buy a KM for $37 and the manufacturer still makes a profit, imagine how much no-name Chinese hookahs cost to make.
