I talked to my dealer today, They're only getting 1-WR450 and 1-WR250 for January. Then the same shippment in March. After that they'll be trickling in.

Dickosaurus,

Where is your dealer located? I'm getting my 450 in Chickasha. The dealer there gets his delivery updates from me (and I get my info on TT)! Hope it arrives this week...

I just talked to my dealer. He say's he will be getting in three in March. The last time he heard it was Jan. He said he will be doing some more research on this and let me know as soon as he knows. I have a very good dealer, and have been doing business with him for 25 years. I trust what he says. Dealer name is Thompsons Yam,Kaw, Suz of Huntsville TN.

When I was shopping for my WR, I first went to the dealer closest to my house.. They told me in no uncertain terms that their first WR450 would arrive in March. I went down the road a few miles and another dealer told me they were expecting theirs around christmas (this was back in September.) If your dealer is being told March, its because they did not order any of the initial shipment (the production lines keep running, but the sea containers only ship out periodically - its cheaper per container to fill a cargo ship once every 2 months than to send a few boxes every day, hence the January to March gap) As the season gets on to nicer weather, Yamaha ships many more units stateside and so ships more often. Check some of the other threads... the bikes are arriving in dealerships NOW. I would suspect that his 'more research' probably involves calling around to other dealerships to see if one of them has a WR450 they would be willing to trade... :) Either way, i hope it comes soon for you.
