I personally think they have whatever it is built boxed and ready to ship but are waiting on a patent or they have some sort of infringement on another company's patent that needs to be taken care of prior to putting it on the market.

I'm curious as to what improvements will be included in this "new" V1. Not much info on it. Seems to be hush hush.

My R7 is bar mounted, but it’s not weatherproof. Great visibility forward, but aft is partially obstructed by me and the aluminum top case. A weatherproof unit could be mounted out on the mirror stalk with much improved fore/aft “vision” and a remote display right in front of the rider.

Right, got it. Do you know someone with a 3D printer, to make a housing? It'd be a good idea to vent it where rain can't get in. Detectors get fairly warm in use.
I've never had a problem with rear radar range even with me in the way. One test against a Stalker saw only 100 metres difference and that could have been down to many things.
I suspect that the R7 will notice you even less.
Post automatically merged:

I think it is pretty simple, I called them and asked to purchase one several months ago to add to my collection and was told it would be in soon and they mentioned late August or so and here we are, many others have called probing, I provided payment info. I think it is cut and dry, they deceived which is also known as lying. The other poster who mentioned omission as a tactic is also correct. Lying through omission. I do not know if you work there or what but you sure are locked on to why I would use this term. Is it clear now?
Yep, they don't like you. They're lying to you deliberately. I'd buy another detector if I was you.
Or, you could just keep on using what you have and be happy.

I'd like to have whatever he's smoking. LOL.

I still think its a supply chain issue either for existing custom parts or new parts. The patents/patent applications are in their downhill leg (2 have been "approved" are in the pay the fee, file the documents, issue the patent phase). The open application deals with processing nuisance signals. Its something that VR needs to address, with or without a patent. If Mike is waiting for that application to get to a pending state, we are looking at at least 6-8 weeks probably. Time will tell.

There are plenty of things that could have happened and my guess is as good as the next guys. I refuse to believe it's a supply chain issue at this point and time. Parts on boats? That ship has sailed...

The longer this “drags on,” my opinions change. Can’t RDF get or hire a mole or spy :shadyhat: to infiltrate and get in there to tell us what’s really going on? Mike’s silicone caulk is a leak stopper.

It's time. We (members of RDF) need to hire @hiddencam to get to the bottom of this! ;)

Congrats everyone on page 100
We did it! 100 pages and absolutely nothing substantive to show for it. YES!
I look forward to the next 100 pages :supaburn:

I’ll let someone else get the honor of #2,000.

I'll take it and run with it. The new/old v1 is coming in two weeks! Bank on that 2000 posts from now.

Here's a list of what's coming:

Display and some internals are different.
No major radical changes.
Mount will stay the same.
Bluetooth is now internal - there will be no need for external BT unit.
Price will be $449.
Pre-orders are being accepted at this time.
