Toronto, Canada? You might have a hard time getting one as there's no news of them going to North America yet. Unless I missed said news...

Hello and welcome, none the less.

Any idea why North America isn't getting it so far? Is there another product that it would compete with? Is there some reason why it wouldn't be popular?

I guess you would be able to, but won't the shipping & handling fee plus the freight be sky high??? :surprise:
That's what I was thinking, better off getting something else just as nice that's available locally. Shipping and handling costs alone are enough to discourage someone from going to those lengths.

Have you been looking at any other bikes?

Yeah.. I remember getting a quote for some vehicle and all the other expenses was like holyyy forget it! lol

I've been looking at other sports bike too, but indecisive...

What's your suggestion/recommendations?

Some people i know even buy used which can go a long way in saving money, especially with a bike for someone new to motorcycles since there's always that fear of dropping it. No one wants to drop a new bike.

Indeed!

I always have that fear LOL

Not that I want to drop bike, but I think I would cry if I dropped a new bike.. haha

I wonder if they have any used XSR700 in the market, but it's still a fairly new bike..
