OK...just made my thrid trip to the local...don't know anything dealer...in as many weeks...trying to figure out when they might be getting in the NEW 08 KLR??? They don't have a clue...they called around several places to Kawi HQ's ect...and still not much news. It sounds like their region (NY) upstate...pretty much any place except NYC...is the last rgion to get thier one bike allotment per dealer??? They "have not been released yet" and are waiting for who knows what...maybe actually 2008??? So I was wondering when everyone saw there first 08 KLR 650 at thier dealer??? This place said that they should have had theirs (mine)..in last month..but not yet, so here I wait, and am wondering who got the first bike (earliest date)??? Inquiring minds want to know, and when I tell my local dealer that people have these bikes and are riding them they say yeah right!!!! Thanks, and I will keep you posted if I ever see a 08 and what color it might be??? I want a blue one! They said it will be red that they get...but how do you like green?

I don't know if your getting shitty toward the dealer, but many others apparently have. What possible incentive do they have to lie? If they could get a bike in and sell it immediately, why wouldn't they?

I suspect Kawi is distributing the bikes among areas where they are selling faster then they can stock em. Unlike dealers, who each want to make their money off these bikes which is their incentive to get them, Kawi gains either way and just wants to sell them. They could careless which dealer actually sells them.

2008's are out . . .

Greetings!

In the Boise, Idaho area, I saw my first one owned by Tim, the owner of Happy Trails. He got a Black and Green one. I saw a picture of Brady with KLR650.com riding a Blue and White one. So, they are out there, it's just going to take abit to get them out. Why not get a 2007? You don't have to wait. I got one and love it.

Regards

Nope not me. Not sure why you use those words, the closest dealer to me is working well with me, just wanted everyone's elses experiance and thoughts.

Your next statement isnot accurate either...

"I suspect Kawi is distributing the bikes among areas where they are selling faster then they can stock em"

Also not true, they come into CA and area distributed by zones, just so happens, what Kawi USA told them with me in the office yesterday our zone is the last one in the USA to get sent any..go figure...

Thanks for the input...just have to be patient and wait. As I watch the warmer part of the riding season drift into rain, snow, ice...

As far as the post about the 07...IMHO it is a way different bike...about the same as a 87, 97...they finaly decided to make some much needed improvements to this classic design and looks, even if I have not seen one, but from what I have seen and read online ect...its is all for the good. If I wanted a 07 I'd by and 05 for half the price..the local dealer just sold their last 07 which had a asking price at about the same as the new 08...crazy.
