Buy the developer edition (they are back in stock on Moto's website). Follow the directions on Moto's website to unlock.
Then look for NWKENT's posts in this forum for his easy instructions for installing TWRP, which will then install root for you.
If what you're thinking is to take a rooted image from a dev edition and drop it onto a consumer phone, it won't work unless the consumer phone is also unlocked.
