From what I understand each reign of the US has its own distribution hub and the dealer is NOT allowed to get a bike from any other hub but the one for their reign. Only Honda corporate can move stock between hubs..
Yeah, that is pretty crappy - but sounds universally common.I've had a deposit on a '22 AT AS since late May. Originally it was supposed to be shipped at the end of June, then the end of July, then the end of August. The latest was that they had a firm date for August 15th and I just got word that date had slipped again.
I hate waiting, especially since I have $2000 worth of parts waiting to be installed.
If anybody is looking, there's an AT and AT AS (both are DCT) on the showroom floor here at Musselman in Tucson.
I'll take deposit back if no show by Nov. 1.My buddy has been wanting on a crf300l rally since Aug. has had 3 different ship dates. The last was September 28 I believe. Now it’s hopeful late October. He got his deposit back and bought a Ktm 390 last week.
Honda should have already switched to MY'23 production.Well just heard from dealer (CT), and after maybe 5th delay, the Nov 29 delivery for a 2022 model (0rderd in June) is pushed into Jan, 2023.
No word yet on ordering a 2023 that is the same bike except colors and I do prefer the tri-color so may change.
Dealer said Honda could also just cancel all remaining 2022 orders. Wonder when Honda would start producing bikes marked 2023?
So I lost my riding season as I expected the bike in June 2022 just after I sold my 2018 AT
Maybe the Rebel is easier to manufacture for Honda, that is, easier to source components.Yeah, mine's December 28th as of today. It's irritating that they're getting a 2023 Rebel 1100T in before my bike.
I went through the same thing. I took my deposit back and currently shopping around. I found a used AF AS that I am working on getting.Yeah, mine's December 28th as of today. It's irritating that they're getting a 2023 Rebel 1100T in before my bike.
