2014 650's out yet in the U.S.?

In the U.S. ... is anybody seeing the 2014 650's at the dealers yet? I've waiting long enough through broken ankle/knee recovery and bad weather I might at well wait until I can get my preferred color.

I may go around to some dealers tomorrow and look around.

IMS show is the only place so far.

I just picked up a '14 DL650A from a bay area dealer. Used the costco referral program, $9300 out the door w/o extended warranty.

Went to 4 dealers yesterday, no new ones yet. Seen a few 14's but not the 1000 or 650. Tried to ask one dude but he was busy and a chick didn't know shit.

I've heard a lot of "we're not sure when" and "any day now." To an extent I'm sure the dealers really are in the dark.

Congratulations, the drickel. Does that "A" on the model number indicate an Adventure model?

Just out of curiosity... unless you wanted the 2014 650 in red, why would you go, in some cases, a couple extra thou, when there are new 2013's, and even 2012's available, and the bike's are virtually identical?

When I bought my 2013, I looked for a new 2012 in the color I wanted, and couldn't find one locally... so went with the 2013 (found one in white), knowing the 2014 would be out in a couple of months (which is why I got a great price)...

I'm sure there are reasons... just curious...

Same here, since the 2013 and 2014 (and 2012 for that matter) are identical (except maybe color options?) I went with a 2013 left over and saved about $1000. I would also recommend looking for a 2013 left over unless they didnt make the color you want in 2013?? I think it was white/blue in 2013 and white/red in 2014?
