Interesting. I sat on a black one at my local dealership last month. They are out there already, but may not be in all locations. If a dealership ordered 5 of them and only received 1 or 2 initially, the rest may be delayed. But who knows. They are likely slower with the parts suppliers impacted by COVID delays, manufacturing shutdowns, or shipping delays. It's hard to tell.

if it was black, then its not an RR
Yeah, good point. I missed that extra "R" in the title and I thought this was in regards to any of them showing up.

makes no sense, not you, but the notion that cargo is packed. My view is that the only reason inflation has not yet been astronomical by Malta Biden Pedo asshole is because Americans are not buying stuff, with possible exception of property.

This is wrong. With the shift from shopping in stores to home delivery for everything, that causes shipments to go up. People aren't spending money at sporting events, movie theaters, restaurants, vacations, etc, it's been documented that they are spending more on durable goods and than in the past. That causes shipments to increase to restock and fill orders. So it make perfect sense that ports are a bit clogged with shipments.

Contacted the dealer and told me he reached out to the regional sales rep who hasn't replied, not sure why the information isnt forthcoming from kawi, contacted kawi in CA and the female rep. nonchalantly told me they have no info on zx10rr availability and told me the same old, "contact your dealer for the most up to date info" then asked for my dealership's name which i didnt provide because they get a comm from corporate like they did something wrong . So at this point "i know nothing"

@peterj59 per my source at KHQ there were ONLY 70 bike imported to the US and those have been available for 2 months. I can confirm I received mine a couple of month ago and I am no one special - I just made a call and asked if I could get it. Not sure this is helpful to you. Have you tried other dealers? I may be able to contact my dealer to see if they can get another.....lmk.

Like I mentioned above, there were ONLY 70 RR's brought to the USA. I had ZERO issue getting one but I ordered early. Not sure why anyone that really wanted an RR is having a problem. There are plenty of regular R's in the dealers.
