It has been suggested that we separate USA Dlr. shipping updates from the mega CRF1000L Merged Threadfest. Please post ETA updates for the DCT & Manual . . . including color. We have been getting ETA's from mid April - August for DCT's & mid April - May 31st for the manual. My dealer was originally told 3/31 release date by his DSM. We have been anxiously waiting since the 2014 Africa Twin Threadfest . . . In the USA, we have been waiting since the 1990 Transalp was discontinued in the states . . . 2017 is included in case the DCT is delayed beyond August . . . and sold as a 2017 . . .
