I know a few guys that were shipped their 2022 Honda CRFs(not L) about 2-6 months earlier then they had been originally told. My guess is that Honda retooled the production to bikes with less electronics. Anything relying on the chips are going to see a long delay.
I deal with an AV supplier who informed me that they are getting less than a quarter(22000/month) of the chips they normally(110000/month) would have before the shortage. And of that 22000 they are getting, almost half or them are faulty or fail Quality Control. 😬
Maybe don't take the sweet deal on a trade in just yet!!!🤣 I don't think I would want a bike or a truck for that matter, built over the last 6 month or so. Time will tell if the manufacturers have been quality control testing or not.
