Thanks for the share! Too bad all of them are spoken for in Southern California :/
Fairly sure, Mr Vapor:), when it comes to the crunch, there will be orders that fall over due to all manner of excuses and circumstances. Try to get yourself on a 'first option', or whatever you guys would call it, list with a couple of dealers.

It happened here with people bailing out - often after big noting to their friends about getting one and then later finding they couldn't afford it. Same also happened with the limited Daytona 765 Moto 2.

If all else fails, @RC45 has probably got about 6 on order across USA!!:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: He'll let you have one!

I tried to lockup a few, but this time round it seems people have wised up - most every dealer already has the bike locked up for a customer, good friend or they are just going to keep it in the window LOL :ROFLMAO:

50 or fewer bikes. At $32K incl TT&L they will struggle to sell more honestly. Took 2 years to sell the 85 or so SP2s and many were deeply discounted to sell.

Where I am from (New Zealand), the RR-R base model will sell for NZ $50k and the RR-R SP (in limited numbers) will sell for NZ $55k. The SC77 base model sold for NZ $28k and the SP for NZ $33k. We still have few 'new' SC77 base model bikes for sale. I think the RR-R might be a hard sell given the huge price hike from the SC77 model to the SC82 model. I will be very surprised (and envious) if I see any SC82's on the road.

As further comparison, @555wrx , in UK the 2018 SP2 was £22,549.

The 2020 RR-R SP, in UK, was/is £23,499.

This, by my reckoning puts the 2020 bike on par (price wise) with the limited edition homologation model, BUT without many of the extras we enjoyed with our SP2s, insomuch as: Marchesini wheels, special paint, and the totally different cylinder head.

We also had 'special' rear sub-frame and pillion cowl, BUT NOW we have to pay £/$170 for the cowl, AND even more for pillion peg delete options in the form of Evotch or Akrapovich exhaust hangar.

To clarify, I am not complaining here, BUT, I do have issue, as you have noted, with the vast price differential over the outgoing model. I'll also add that some report being hit VERY hard for insurance. (y)

I’m guessing your quoted price plus VAT? How much is that?

Nah, that was inclusive - all up.

The VAT component of the £23,499 was £3892.17, which I reluctantly pay to upkeep Her Majesty's horses and corgis.:rolleyes:

Gee, mine doesn't sound like that. :eek:

Guess I'd better give it handfuls more revs!!:D
The real business is all in that last 1000rpm from 13,500 to 14,500 - you better get the twisting that wrist old chap lol :ROFLMAO:

And this is why it is more a track bike.

Whether UK or USA, we all know special roads where we can explore our bike's 'potential' but the element of risk (police) by buzzing 14,000-plus revs on the RR-R is extremely high no matter where we are. I am no prude, but we are talking serious loss of licence time, or prison in some circumstances, once we enter the triple figure zone - and I'm not talking KPH!!

Didn't @RC45 comment somewhere that these things'll do 123 mph in first? They truly are a weapon, and require a heap of discipline. Those of you waiting for one will NOT be disappointed.:love::love:
