Great info! Thanks......and you missed it by 1?!?! :crying:
Wish they'd go ahead and call them 2020's at that point...Suxx.....All rightie lads - I have an update directly from Kawasaki USA. Received it yesterday afternoon (4/30/19).
First, a clarification. The first shipment to North America (delivered late March) were the first <<12>> bikes ordered, NOT 18 as I reported earlier. This is verified information.
I am order #19 , so there are 6 in the build schedule ahead of me.
I would not expect Kawasaki to ship a small lot of bikes (4 or 5 for example), so I'm going to assume that the next shipment will be all of the remaining orders for North America (maybe another dozen bikes or so). Just speculation.
Now for the bad news. I was told that my delivery (#19 on the build schedule, a Carbon) is not in the US, nor on a boat, and from what I can gather, not built yet.
Estimated delivery (and this is just a wild-ass guess on Kawasaki's part, as it is not even visible in the system yet) reported as "END OF MAY", which to me means "perhaps sometime in June".
If you didn't receive yours yet, you're gonna be waiting A WHILE still. It is what it is. Fortunately I have 6 others to ride while I wait.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. The first time you/I/we get to rip that throttle, the wait will be entirely worth it.
