so, I can't figure out if nobody knows these were available or if just nobody cared,
you can find almost no one talking about these anywhere except India or a couple guys in Great Britten
I got 1 guy to say he got 1 but that's it
it could be that we all have orders in but don't know when they are going to show up, so a little unsure
my dealer said they are very hard to pin down as to when an order comes or even ships
maybe the fact that the US price was so high nobody wants to talk about it
I figured that a new speed twin 900 was 10k so a bike that only has 30 coming to the US would be pretty cool and maybe worth some money in the long run
also, there is vids that the gt comes with 2 seats and vids that they are missing parts that are in the vids from RE.
and they are so hush hush that nobody knows what you're going to get
you would think that Re US would just make a call and tell people what they are getting
I'm hearing there are dealers at 5k over on the price GOOD FRICKEN GOD I would not buy from them
I mean what would people pay for a 1 of 30 bike that you won't find probably anywhere
anyone with any info on them would be helpful to all
or not

my quick rundown as I know it. means very little
4 areas of globe got 120 bikes, 60 each of Gt and Int650. so, 480 total
Americas was last area as I can see. US to get 30 of each bike
first off, the date of the flash sale changed and the keep informed link never gave you any hope of ever seeing one of these, so anyway
you got an email in the morning for a flash sale. the second that link opened if you didn't hit the button that second you probably didn't get one
again, as I can tell your US bike will be numbered to 60 because it was 1of 60 for your area
approx. an hr to an hr and a half I got an email from RE, see photosint letter.jpg
you had 5 days to reach your dealer and order the bike,
communication isn't a strong suit of Re and the dealers on these bikes
all I can say is my awesome dealer kept me in the loop as much as she could. I give lots of credit to her for that
as I got a letters

I was also told the US was getting higher numbered bikes
so maybe 31/60 and up
still no idea if that's true

I suspect most were sold to people who work for Royal Enfield. I know of five that were bought by employees. The general public never had a chance.

One employee who bought one says he has no intention of ever riding it. He's putting it on display, dry, until he can get $20,000+ for it.

im not an employee and i have 1 of each so they will be real tore up when the pics start tomprrow
me and my wife hit the button the second it opened for each bike. by the time we hit it again they were sold out 60 -90 secs
It's possible that employees got them as the information on what to do was really bad
cant imagine there is another household that got a pair, however i hope there is. and if there is someone that will give me bids over 20 grand each they will get sold
mine will be delivered to my house and sit in my house till i decide what to do with them
