950S confirmed for delivery

Hello to all,

After almost a year and a half here I decided to make my first post .

Because a month ago I made a deposit for a MTS 950 S with urban and touring pack's. Red. In the last six years I have driven a beautiful Monster 600 y 2000 with passenger and luggage for around 10K per year. Exceptional bike that took me through wonderful places, it definitely stays and I'll make many km with it.
Today I called the dealer to ask about some protection, stuff and of course any news about the bike. No good news. After 15-20 min he called me back saying that he just received an email from the factory saying that the bike will be delivered starting with 20.03 from Italy.  Pack's may arrive later, there seem to be many orders and can not cope. Even so he made my day! :001:
I will only be able to pick up the bike first of April  :003:, planned vacation in advance.

Also today I ordered some protections:
- crash bars from Givi;
- radiator and oil cooler guard from R&G, black (all of the bellow are R&G);
- water pump cover;
- engine case slider;
- cotton reels;
- fork protectors, large;
- swingarm protector;
- a gps tracker, from a romanian trader;
Next on my list are: MRA Variotouring screen, dash protector from Speedo Angels, Pyramid fender extender, Engiemoto and Quadlock to use my phone as a gps and other things. I hope this it's all. I changed the jacket with the Clover Ventouring Hiviz and next will be Shoei Neotec 2. But for now I have a big black hole in my wallet.

Pictures will be followed. Not with the black hole. :038:

    Welcome to the forum Julian.

    You may well become the first 950S owner on this forum!

    There will be few jealous folk on this forum... and that includes me!

    Looking forward to seeing the photos when it finally arrives.

    BTW, did you manage to test ride the 950S before pulling the trigger on ordering one?

    Maybe not the first one, but one of the first.

    The 950S it's not yet available for test drive, in my country at least. I test drive the 950 last year. Love it so much that I can not descrie, fit me like a glove. The only negative part it's the wind over the original screen. I felt some buffering over my shoulders, not much, but it's there. After I will put some good km on it I can decide If I should replace the screen. 

    Thank you!

    It is normal because the bike has not yet been released officialy, the press release was two weeks ago if I remember. This sound logic to me, I don't know for sure.
    Let's wait until the bike is in my hands and only then I will be 100% happy.
