In Mama Kaw's defense, the US market is historically VERY intolerant of
first model-year "glitches."  The display model did look like a bit of a
"test mule" with some minor roughness around the edges and a little
compartment at the front of the tank that nobody could figure out how to
open...  Maybe they're just scared to let Americans play with something
that's not quite "right" yet.

Either way, it's still kinda' lame that you couldn't sit on it.
