FYI: More 2012's are starting to arrive!

I was up at a dealer in N Utah and he had a new Fox Orange standard out on the floor. I believe he said he had one in back as well. He has been sold out since early March.

Based on this, I can only assume that Suzuki finally got some inventory off the boat, through customs and has begun to ship them to dealers.

Anyways, I figured this might be news worth having for anyone that is struggling to locate one before 0% financing runs out.

Another one has shown up at:
Michael's Reno Powersports 775-825-8680 (ask for Chris).

The guy called me back from when I was searching in late May.

so it appears that they are dribbling in very slowly.

I called a couple dealers that are close by, and they all acted like getting one wasn't a problem, one even said he could get me one this afternoon. But he never called back. Waiting for a second dealer to call back. Just didn't want to go an hour and 45 mins away to get one.

I understand.

That's far too short a ride home.

The place where I originally ordered my Glee but couldn't get one is showing two on the floor right now. They are listed at MSRP though, not $800 off like when I ordered one. An interesting thing is one is black and not an Adventure model.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

They must have run out of luggage.

Mine is only 2/3 adventure: the dealer had a std and an adventure. Someone bought the std and really wanted the bags, so the dealer took the bags and rack off the Adventure and put it on the orange one for the guy.

They sold me the de-bagged adventure for the price of the std (having made the upcharge on the sale of the bags to the orange-buyer), so I got the bars and laminar screen as "free" upgrades.

I guess the dealers are allowed some latitude.

haha,
Should I be slightly concerned about having to maintain a constant speed/rpm on a new bike for 100 miles?...

My local dealer in Falmouth, ME just got an Orange "plain Jane" model and also has a black ADV model on the floor.

Cheers,
Don
