With the delivery pushed back over four months, Yamaha is offering buyers who were part of the Priority Delivery Program a $1000 credit towards Genuine Yamaha Parts and Accessories.

“This production delay is a very unfortunate situation,” General Manager of Yamaha’s Motorcycle Group Mike Doughty said, “but we stand by our commitment to the quality of our motorcycles and the highest level of customer service for both our customers and our dealers.”

Ultimate Motorcycling has been waiting for a production version to test, so our plans look to be on hold.
