Yep. I have no problem waiting. This bike ticks every upgrade I want from the rebel I have now. The thing that frustrates me is being told the dealership was taking delivery in April then not hearing anything from them. I finally reached out to them yesterday and they still haven’t gotten any MT09s delivered that they ordered. Not just mine but all of them. They said it was out of their hands and just to be patient. Which I totally get.Moreso an issue with poor communication, like elp_jc wrote. When the manufacturer says a bike will be available in March (for the SP, at least) and here we are going into May with none to be found, it's reasonable for people to be upset.
Add in the manufacturer date on some of the base models being 6 months ago and even those still aren't readily available, it gets frustrating.
This isn't an issue of "people today are so wrapped up with instant gratification", it's manufacturers not sticking to their word or being transparent with regards to updates.
Yamaha needs to reach out to these dealerships and let them know what’s going on, especially if there are people like me with money tied up in deposits on bikes that were said to be delivered in a certain timeframe and still aren’t.
