2012 World GP 50th Anniversary R1

Looking to purchase one...being that it is said to have a production of 2000 units...does anyone have an idea where I can look for specific production numbers?



Or am I just being ridiculous.

Perhaps so... there is a list somewhere ... (in corporate?) that identifies which productions went to where.

This would be the easy way...other than that I will have to place calls or emails to every dealer that has one in stock to find out which production numbers they have.

lol 666 is a nice number. I don't know why I am so keen on the production number...but if at all possible...getting one that I want would be great... like icing on the cake.

None of the 2012 R1s are limited edition.

OK... but still it is not considered a limited edition. Where you would get a limited edition plate on your tank stating xxx of 500.

Yes, you are correct. However I have not said it was a limited edition. Im looking for a production number though...just trying to find an easier way to find it without having to call dealerships etc.

Oh...I thought he meant it was only limited edition if it showed 500 units produced.

Yes, these have XXXX of 2000 on the tank

Dealer in my city still has their anni edition and it is #50 of 2000. I think #50 is a pretty good number if I were looking for one. They won't come down too much off sticker though they are pretty good about throwing out those stupid setup/delivery fees.
