As many of you know the 2004 R1 is due out in late Feb. early March.
Yamaha was promoting them on a early deposit program, which was suppose to run till the end of Feb. Well they have informed us that they are going to end the early deposit program at the end of January, as they have already hit and exceeded target expectations.
For those that have order one, congrats, it will be a hot bike, for those that haven't you still have a week or so.
and for those that want to wait, don't be surprized if you can't find one. As with everything, there is always a way to get one, as many of the people who pre order don't always qualify for financing or have the funds when their bike arrives.
All I can say is check them out at the bike show this weekend, I will be there all weekend come say hi and if you want one we will be setup to take deposits at the show.
