Can't see anything wrong with the website: Bikes > drop down to Fitness > lateral to 'Commute'.
As for the the 2013 Sirrus Ltd SL4 you refer to, I suspect it was a marketing test: would anyone (i.e. more than one or two people) actually purchase such a bike? Answer: no; model: dropped -- no market. The other possibility: there were a few left-over 2013 Fact10r/SL4 Roubaix frames.
BTW, aside from the grade of cf used, this year's Sirrus Pro seems interesting: SL4 frame (8r rather than 10r in Specialized-speak), discs, etc.
Pity Specialized won't, for whatever reason, actually get round to making a dedicated (geometry; specifically, effective t/t length) flat-bar version of this frame for the carbon Sirrus. I would love one of these, but won't consider it so long as it's simply a Roubaix frame w/flat bars slapped on. Until they do, I'll stick with my '10 Sirrus Comp, which at least has proper geometry.
