The dealership I went through has sold all of what they were allotted as well, which was 2.
Have you tried a dealership further away from where you are?
It'd be worth the drive to check if you're really wanting the bike. 馃
Good luck and hope you find one available. 馃檹馃徑馃

$11,988 in Georgia. First dealer took a deposit and offered a full quote, the next two dealers wouldn't even give a quote.
I guess those two are the dealers you don't do business with when it comes down to it. 馃し馃徏鈥嶁檪锔忦煒

It's good to see some consistency in the out the door pricing from the various nationwide dealers. 馃憤

Another brand different bike, the first dealer I called said "Why are you calling us, there are closer dealers to you." Wow insane response. Next 2 dealers never followed through on sending me quotes. Fourth dealer was happy to give a quote and take a deposit. How do the first 3 stay in business? Beats me I guess they are drowning in walk-in purchases.

Well, unfortunately the one that gave a quote has demonstrated some pretty scummy behavior previously, so I'm not thrilled to be doing business with them.

Yup, the price we pay for the things we covet.
Yup exactly.
I had eyes on the ZX6R but decided not to get it as I already have two great bikes and time to save money as impending doom is about to hit our economy. 馃槀

Then word got out the 4RR is actually coming and THAT was THE bike I absolutely wanted.
Hence my retirement saving will have to wait a little longer while I splurge one last time on this indulgence we call 'things we covet'. 馃槀馃し馃徏鈥嶁檪锔忦煠︷煆火煠煠

Silicon Valley Bank failed today. A popular payroll processor, Rippling, used them. Apparently a lot of people didn't receive Friday's paycheck. This is going to be all the news for the next week ...
Not only that but Bank stocks are plummeting as well so we will see how this goes.
Either way I'm getting the bike. 馃槢
Im an essential worker and will always have work as long as there are supply chains needing their freight and shipping their wares. 馃馃憤

It would be better if people added their OTD鈥檚 before sales tax, as that varies wildly, and 5 States don鈥檛 charge it.. :)

That being said, the margin is quite slim on this moto, I saw the Kawa internal book at my dlr, & it鈥檚 less than $500-.
Freight, build & dlr fees is how they will boost that a bit.

I鈥榤 paying msrp plus $300 for freight + dmv + NYS sales tax.
