New models are usually shown to the press in advance of their introduction, with an "embargo", meaning that the media cannot talk about a new model until the specific date. Dozens of people knew about the SV1000, ZR1000, ZX-6R, CBR600RR, etc., months ago but were sworn to secrecy. MO does, in fact, cooperate with the OEMs, and that's why you don't see early information on this site. The euro sites don't seem to care about honoring the embargo so much, but here if you lose the OE's trust, you don't get to see new stuff next time.

Re: It may not be here until 2004????

Don't worry. I have it on very good authority (I can't say, but trust me) that it is, indeed, coming to the U.S. soon. You'll see it when the rest of the world sees it, but your dealer is usually the last person to know what's going on.
