I got some more insights today from someone whose cousin is working in AHL. 50 of these new model bikes are already built and being tested in AHL premises since 2 weeks now. The tentative launch date set forth 2 weeks earlier was approx 2 months.
I am not sure if its still the same or not but one thing's for sure, the bike's have been manufactured and being tested as I write this piece. Unsure why they have not intimated the dealers at this point since gathering feedback should also be a key factor involved in production.
