Just curious, where did you see the price around $15,000? I've been watching info. on this bike for about a year now and all I've heard is somewhere around $5,000 to $7,000 US. Not saying your wrong but I don't think they'll be selling many/any for $15,000. Even if the production model comes with those fancy Brembo calipers and Galfer wave discs. Still, looking forward to seeing one in person. At 6'3" I'd like a nice smaller commuter bike for my frame (aside from a Vstrom or versys).
