The lack of information on the ETA of the 17's is EXACTLY what most of us went through with the 15's. KTM are notoriously bad at communication with their dealers.
Even after my dealer had received their allotment, they were still taking orders, despite not knowing they were not getting any more. They actually ordered 6 and ended up getting 3.
If you are serious, I'd get a deposit down ASAP. Even though I prefer the 15/16, the reviews the 17's are getting will mean they won't be on the floor long.
