I guess Ace likes to let these rumors spread, however this one may have cost them some R60 sales, I saw a lot of post on here from people that were going to buy the R60 and then decided otherwise.
whats the street estimate for a 90 SE, are these things out yet?
I wasn't going to post this for fear of starting another rumor, but what the heck. I was told by a dealer that it will retail for around $800, he did say that price was not solid but it should be around there. And nope they are not out yet.

Is this the SE or the "standard"?
