I think it would be a good idea if Aprilia shipped the Capo Nord that it annoucned months ago before it makes any promisses on the Blue Marlin. My dealer has had his shipments delayed for 3 months now. I was told I could have my pick of colors and the factory would deliver to the dealers the colors they ordered. Now dealers aren't sure what they will get or when. I'm headed over to the Suzuki dealer to see what's up with the DL 1000. Maybe I can even buy one!
