I took a look at the Yamaha site today, and it now says April 2015 as the month of release. What is going on here? The weather is so good, and I already have a deposit down on this bike!

They do use the California ports but most were on strike for the past three months due to union and worker constraints and debates over higher pay and better benefits it's happened 3 times I'm the last year and a half they really delayed a lot of work and progress by going on stroke companies such as Macys, Home Depot , Columbia Sports Wear , and Sears were affected this also included the likes of Yamaha , Kawasaki, Suzuki , Honda , BMW , Mazda And Mini just to name a fewYou would think the bikes would use West Coast ports, but often they don't. The Grom first showed up in New Orleans. Houston is another favorite port.
Vespas are great scooters, but way over priced due to its prestige. Looking at the current line up of the 300, 300gts and 300 super... thats a pretty penny... R3 pennies...I borrowed a 2014 Hooligan demo while I was having my free Vespa 300 oil change in June. I didn't like the long wheel base which decreases the scooters flickability, but it was certainly a capable little scooter. Just not as fast or nimble as my Vespa 300. I do a lot of short trips for groceries or to Subway and I put my soft drink refill in the pet carrier - Vespa code for the under-seat storage which has an image of a cat with a line drawn through it indicating not to carry your pet in the storage area. A scooter is a very practical and handy ride to own.
Well if you do happen to come across some, please update us for sure!Had some brand new 2015 r1's on my trailer at work today. It's been a good little while since we have had Yamaha anything come across the dock, so it's nice to see they have some movement again. I'm expecting to see some r3's here possibly this weekend, if not early next week.
