He didn't have official word on the SR400, but in their last internal dealer meeting they announced that by the 2015 model year they will have 5 completely new models in the US market. With a chance of a late 2014 model showing up. He felt confident that one of those models would be the SR.
Obviously this should all be taken with a grain of salt, because clearly it's not an official announcement. But it is a guy who works in the company, speaking very candidly with me, and was genuinely excited to tell me what little he knew.
And so the wait continues...
Thanks for the update. With 5 new bikes coming it makes me second guess myself about buying a new bike next spring.
Naturally, the common people don't want war; ... the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country - Hermann Goring
