According to our LBS ( I took the notice up with them) the bicycles was never issued in SA and all the stock was sent back to Specialized. That was the reason why there was no stock avaialble in SA for quite a while. Therefore all bikes in SA was repaired before issued to shops.

If I remember correctly the whole issue was about the mounting bracket at the back wheer the brain portion of the rear shock is mounted to the rear stays.
