isn't it still July, in 2007?

Pretty soon they'll be released so early that we'll be getting 2012 bikes in 2009

And this is bad, why?

Kinda like the magazine people putting the August issue on the shelf in June.. Although it's got March info in it..

Nothing quite like reading about the Supercross Championships at Redbud!

What's the earliest a car/bike manufacturer has done?

I remember Ford releasing the 1997 F150 in January of 1996.

Technically by AMA rules the new released model year is not allowed to race until after Lorettas is finished. We found out back when the YZ85 was first released and we got the first one in this area. Spider raced it and got DQ d because Lorettas was still going that day

Ford has done that for awhile now. For example, march 2001 they released the 2002 explorers, march 2004 they released the 2005 focus, the 2008 superduty trucks were released january 2007, the 2008 escapes were released feb. 2008.

I work at ford and I am already seeing 2009 vehicles.

I can not say, For with great power comes great responsibility. If I were to tell you that it could cause a rift in the space-time continuim, and the whole universe could be destroyed!
