Quoted from cscmtp:
Serious question, is there any reason to believe I can't get an LE say by Feb or March of next year? And if the LE's actually do sell out that fast, wouldn't there be plenty of SE versions at that time?
Only the LE's are limited in manufacturing quantity at 1250, which is a lot. But there is no reason to believe that they will actually make all 1250 (now), if demand doesn't warrant it.
The 1250 LE number is also a lot, due to the CE's & SE's versions being made with no limit to their production noted at present.
CGC currently has a number of parts that will take them thru their current production plan, and I have no idea what that number is. It maybe something like 2000 (a guess) units, in a combination of LE, SE & CE machines. They will have a sales projection based on MMr & AFMr sales history and pre-orders from their dealers and that first batch of parts number will be based on that.
As sales start to reach that XXXX number, then they will order another batch of parts. I would surmise that production batches would be on the order of 250 units combined, with the breakout of each based on the first batch mix.
I'm sure that there is a practical limit to SE & CE production, as in they won't run out and then make 25 more, then 15 more, etc. When orders start to diminish, whatever block they are currently making will probably be the end of production.
Anyway, I believe that there will be MBr's available for quite awhile, in every configuration.
