Quoted from Rob_G:
I bet they don't want to put too many premium out there because they want the LE to sell first. Stern doesn't seem too concerned about KISS Premium sales or even the code for that matter. It's been out 4 months now and there hasn't been 1 'significant' code update released. Look how fast it progressed from initial .5 beta to release and then poof, the code takes a vacation. Sometimes I wonder if some (not all) of these programmers are spending their days watching cat videos on the internet behind closed doors...
LE's from Stern were sold out in 7 minutes. (Yes I know a few distributor's still have them). This is the highest initial demand for a Stern ever, they are having trouble keeping up with demand, it's as simple as that. There will be another major code update around Halloween.
