Could the with both models mean 800 of each are being made? It says 800 with both models.

The translation says 800 bikes covering both models. If that's true better get the bike you already have your name on at your local dealer and don't wait for better weather !!

"Annual planned sales – 800 models with both models". Stuff gets messed up in translation all the time. I think it's possible it means with both models as in 800 SX and 800 SEs are what they are expecting to sell. Like they are expecting to sell 800 of both models.

800 bikes at $22,000 equals $17,600,000. for a high estimate. Then when you factor in the cost of designing, developing, testing, manufacturing, re-tooling the assembly line for a new model, shipping etc. That doesn't seem like a decent return on the investment. But I'm not an economics or business expert it might pay off in the long run.
I wonder how many comparable bikes Kawasaki sold last year, c14, zx14, versys, ninja 1000, h2?

There's over 1,100 Kawasaki dealers listed on motorcycle dot com for just the United States. Even if it was 800 bikes per market that's less than 1 per dealer.

Any thoughts on the March 1st? Available at dealers March 1st, shipping from Japan March 1st, or just an official launch event date with bikes coming whenever.

The translated website says it will "launch" March first. But they already launched it so I'm pretty sure its something getting lost in translation. I'm guessing that's when it will be available in the dealerships that are getting them.
