I’ve been giving this some thought and I believe that Valentine will NOT be releasing stealth V1.
My reasoning is as follows. Valentine is a small American Company that is geared towards a “Niche” in the RD market... His primary target market is the USA.
So if Valentine does stealth his V1 he now is confronted with changing his corporate structure. He will have to go international, which he seems to have no interest in doing.
The other option is that he would have to allow independent retailers like Roy to sell his RD to customers outside of the USA.
If Valentine is the egomaniac as some suggest I just cannot see that Roy (or anyone else) would need the headaches of dealing with Valentine Research. Also I think Valentine is protective of his company and product like “A Mother Hen protecting it’s nest”. I just don’t see that happening.
The reality appears to be that Mr. Valentine is doing very well with the status quo he has (if his Porsche’s are any indicator) so what’s in it for him to stealth his V1.
I just don’t believe he has any motivation to infiltrate the Canadian Market (very small) The Australian Market (small) and Europe...
I’m not sure how big the trucking market is in the USA, The Spectre does not seem to be an “Issue” in the USA yet.
How many Spectres are there in for example Arizona? (Probably only one Roy’s)
My thoughts people. Comments?
Oh and while typing this it just hit me, My V1 has Euro Mode which I have never turned on……so maybe I just put the first hole in my theory…….
