My UK dealer has 5 in his showroom, all sold.
He is expecting his next delivery Feb 17 !!!
He has/is also selling his demo bike as there is no point running a demo for a bike he can't supply.

I believe these bikes are available or at least was told they were today by dealer at Hunts in Manchester.
Certainly the Tricolour DCT with 1200 miles is at 10995

Dealer explained to me that officially there should be none (new) available unless through a cancelled order.

They showed me official communication from Honda that enforces 1 Honda order number versus 1 Bike. Honda will then independently follow up that the bike is registered to the customer mentioned in the order.

Supply seems desperate. (Demand + Earthquake)

Based on above I placed an order 15/4 to get in the system. Dealer showed Honda order book system where delivery shows 2020 !! We agreed provisional delivery date of September.

I ordered Manual CRF Rally Red but would take Tri-Colour if available first. At time of order they had a cancelled Tri-Colour DCT available.

Unless through a cancelled order I am not realistically expecting anything in 2016 based on dealer input + forums like this

Tinpot. I asked my dealer to check actual situation , since Hunts differs from their understanding of situation regarding new AT's

Will feedback any updates

JOL: I'm going to wait for new one thanks .

Tinpot: My dealer confirms that no UK dealer should have an AT that is not already sold and awaiting collection. So there should be no stock or incoming bike not linked to a customer order. That's the official line of Honda apparently.

According to other posts on this forum the AT's were on the production line at time of earthquake. Unless it's already on a boat somewhere then not expecting shipments to start from Japan until Aug/Sep

Difficult to get to truth of actual situation
