Anyone in US pickup their '17 SuperDuke R yet?

My dealer doesn't know when they are coming in... but assuming March. I have read elsewhere about a potential hold on the '17 SDR's, due to a potential TFT screen issue. No details though.

Anybody know for sure? Or have a dealer with details?

Thanks in advance.

Dude they haven't even released the street parts catalog for '17 yet. I don't know what's going on.

Hey all - first post.

I'm waiting on delivery of my '17 SDR. Hopefully will be in soon, but was just told "April". :-/

Side question - As per the video above, I'm assuming the 17 model won't be an easy case of de-cat and enjoy life? Seems RJ said there was a whole host of things that have to be done - unlike the 14-16 models (due to Eu4).

Cheers and hope someone gets their new bikes soon. Seems late - really late.

Ive spoke to my dealer a dozen times.He doesnt know any more than I do. I put a $1000 deposit down in February and still nothing. I called KTM corporate in Ohio today and got a return phone call. Representative was reading a pre-written response. The usual apologies. He says there is no release date and wouldn't tell me a reason why. He was very snide with his responses. I asked him how the had a release date in February but not one now. I told him that I was lied to among many others waiting for there bikes and the least they could do is lift the shroud and be honest. I also informed him of there very formidable competition, BMW, Yamaha, and Aprilla. I guess now I get my deposit back and look into one of the available bikes. For my first time experience with KTM it is not positive and I don't think I could trust them now for further issues such as warranty etc. They've made some really nice commercials and shouted how they're the best but lets see them prove it with actions.

2 cylinder torque and love the styling. 17 has the cruise control which was a want or need. I'm trying to remain patient but I believe it's asinine that a company can't communicate with its dealer network and let them into the loop of what's happening and reasoning. I can understand they can't give a release date because of other players involved. At the same time how were they able in February to give a March date and now can't give any. Were you told April or at least by the end of it. I've been told nothing to this point.
