Does anyone know how many SS Polaris is projecting / slighted to be manufactured for the 2015 model ?

Here's a clip of an article from morningstar on Polaris:

The Slingshot is coming to retail over the next few months, and Polaris has forecast the distribution channel to reach 350 dealers in North America; we think this could take some time as it has more than 350 dealers committed, but none ready to retail as of the end of July. It expects overseas distribution beginning in 2015. Management indicated that the Slingshot could be a $300 million-$500 million revenue opportunity over the next three to five years, which would imply 18,000 units sold globally on an annual basis if we use the midpoint of the current price points offered and the midpoint of the forecast revenue range. Our updated forecast calls for motorcycle revenue of $757 million in 2018, with the category growing at a double-digit clip annually, which could be light if the Slingshot has success at the high end of its forecast range. Our current earnings per share forecast for 2018, which includes Slingshot success in the middle of the expected range ($1.03 in 2018 earnings), is $12.01.

Don't remember where I read it, but a business-oriented web publications estimated 3,000 units at $20K each. This was back before the official announcement and price info was released, IIRC.
