I just recieved an email from an inquiry I made to the UK about 10 months ago. Here is the reply that I got from their designated "South Eastern" Dealer: Hi Jeff, My name is Tom Fiegener. I am the Sales and Marketing guy at RPM Cycle, Norton Motorcycles official dealer for Texas and the Southern U.S. region. The guys at Norton recently sent me your contact information and told me that you were interested in the new 961 Commando. I would like to let you know that we are currently taking deposits on 961 Commandos! A deposit will insure that you get first shot on the exact bike you are looking for! It is our hope that production will allow us to have enough bikes for our showroom and demo units for the first year. At this time it is too early to tell if that will be possible or if only those bikes with deposits will arrive. We here at RPM are very excited and honored to carry this iconic brand! We our currently in the process of planning an unveiling of the 961's! I will keep you posted as we get more concrete plans. If you have any questions on price, deposits, the bike, or just any ideas you want to send our way please let me know. Thank you for your time!
