First post! But when all the Sports Classics have been sold, what then? Most people who want a monster have already got one, and nobody wants 999s.

This is great news! Maybe they'll start opening some new dealers? As of now I must go 100 miles for a dealer.



I'm with some of the other posters, I want that hypermotard!

Hmm. So perhaps it wasn't snow back East that was delaying the arrival of my Sport1000. Two models that have been eagerly awaited for nearly two years(PS1k and the Sport1K). Both arrive in the dealerships in Jan. A record sales month? What a surprise!

I understand that some of their revenue is derived from kick backs from my chiropractor.

Mine feels as comfortable as an upholstered crucifix.
