That was quick!
« on: July 04, 2015, 08:18:00 AM »
As my bike was a "cancelled order" I wanted to check and make sure it really was, and hasn't been sat around for weeks, and to also check what was fitted at the factory (especially as there's talk of bikes arriving without the DRL), and to my surprise, the bike was built on the 16th June! Now, that is fast!

If anyone wants to check their build dates, and factory spec, have a look here, and put the last 7 numbers of your VIN in the box.

Yep, they seem to take 2 weeks to arrive at the dealer from the day they were built
