When did the first actual production vehicle for sale come out? I did some quick reading and they said it was a 2011 concept, and it was introduced here in Daytona. I think 2014 maybe? But when did they start offering them full-on for sale, I wonder.
I don't know about how ready they are to supply parts, but you could always do a test of sorts: Think of about 5 parts that should be available for almost any newer bike and call your local dealer and ask them if they have them in stock, can they get them, how long, and how expensive? Kind of get a real world idea before you consider buying one.
I'd ask for an ignition switch, wheel bearings, kickstand spring, replacement fender, fuel gauge sending unit, fuel filter, those kinds of common items.
