Yea, curious on how you got that info on what number you are.Not a carbon, but the base H2. Im told I am #7 (1st batch) and mine will arrive in March. I ordered on 11/11/20.
I read an article about Kawi being behind due to COVID. The article even mentioned the H2. So, I contacted my sales guy and told him I wanted info on the delay because I wasn’t going to wait a single day out of April (originally they said March/April). I was already starting to look at other bikes. My sales guy promptly called his rep and got the information.HOW did you get the info ?
I read an article as well with delays but then my dealership told me everything is still on track. I just want the bike to be here already. I hate waiting!I read an article about Kawi being behind due to COVID. The article even mentioned the H2.

yeah... the wait is ridiculous. Other companies will be getting their 2022 models when ours arrive. I guess that is the price of exclusivity. I know I will love it when I get it, but I would have bought five different bikes by now had I not committed to this one.I read an article as well with delays but then my dealership told me everything is still on track.

idk , i was told in november i believe that i put the 5k deposit down on the last day to order a 2021 , and kawi cut off the 2021 order deadline on top of that i was told the 5k deposit was minimum required hope we are both rightSo today I either made the smartest decision I've made in a long time or one of the dumbest ever... At 56 years old 👨🦳 this absolutely reeks of a mid-life crisis! 😖
I put a $500 deposit down on a 2021 H2 Carbon. After scouring the internet and calling dealer after dealer I think I MAY have found one. According to the dealer they sold a H2 Carbon several months ago and immediately ordered a new one. I've heard numerous things from numerous dealers with regard to availability/purchasing an H2.
1) Each bike is built to order and the order period ended November 30, 2020 for the 2021 bikes, therefore you cannot get one until 2022.
2) Kawasaki will not be producing H2's for 2022.
3) Dealers had to provide a buyers name in order to place an order for an H2.
4) Some dealers have skirted that issue through various ways and that's how I am able to buy a H2 Carbon now.
5) "My" bike had already been ordered and is scheduled to arrive at the dealer in March or April (I'm not counting on that).
I'm not completely convinced that I'll actually see this bike, it was worth $500 to try and it didn't appear that, after extensive research, I had any other options. The dealer is a big dealer so I'm hoping he's just not trying to string me along. I told the dealer that if I didn't receive the bike by the end of May that I would have the option to receive my deposit back, he agreed and said it would be no problem. I figure if I come to my senses and decide it's more than I need I can probably sell it pretty easily. If anyone has any thoughts, suggestions, comments, old age jabs just let me know. Except for the old age jabs!
The countdown begins......
My dealer called me and told me that the h2 and h2 carbon are still set to be delivered on time. Shipping starts March. The h2r is going to have a delay they said.
I think the shipments are from west coast and not Japan. When I spoke to my dealer they said its most likely coming from California. My email I got from kawasaki was that all H2 and H2 carbons are on schedule and the H2r is not and to expect them mid may for h2r. Also the email I got from kawasaki said shipments begin March 21 my dealer did not have a vin for me as well but said in the next week or 2 I should have one. I'm In Arizona from what I hear California arizona and Nevada and or Washington and Oregon will get them in around March 25th to 31st. Ill keep you in the loop.I spoke to the dealer on Saturday. He said the bike has not shipped yet and was unable to provide a VIN at this point. I wonder if they mean it hasn't shipped from Japan or from the west coast. I looked into shipping time from Japan. It takes 20 - 28 days for the trip. Then the products can sit at the harbor for weeks before shipping out on truck. I'm located in the Mid-West, I'm sure it's another week to ship it from the port in Long Beach to the dealer. I don't think I'll see this bike until the end of April.... if I'm lucky.
Hmm that's weird. I spoke with my dealer they forwarded the email to me from the kawasaki rep. He said that the beginning of March they shipped them out from Japan and to hit the ports late March. Has to clear customs he said then shipping out by order number. I ordered mine Oct 4 he said my order is number 4.I just got an update that they were just now crating a “batch” for the US. I ordered in November (11th maybe) and
Supposedly mine won’t reach Savannah (a hub before my dealership in Fl) until mid April. fucking pissed is putting it mildly. Yes,,: fuck you again, Rick.
