so tempted so so tempted...
so tempted so so tempted...
Love their meaningless to Canada details, with no actual specifics on the bike. They're also notorious for posting ads to sell bikes they dont have, have already sold, or cant get.
I bought my new bike from Holeshot last July.....after a couple of very disappointing encounters with their Accessory, Parts and Service dept's, I will not be back.
There's something very, very wrong with their Customer service culture in that building.
They do it with the rc8. Recently they added that the bike is special order only.
"Honda = Boring, Suzuki = Wannabes, Yamaha = Poser, Ducati = Overated, BMW = Compensating, Aprilia = Insecure, Buell = BCIT business... go faKOffee." - PUREVIL
else the ad should clearly state that the product is for presale purposes, taking deposits, etc.
I have no idea if it's available to buy from them right now, or if they have any to sell. I do know that
they did the same with the Vstrom 1000.....had images, and ads for sale, when they used a pics from
a demo model for the bike show, and did not have one available to sell.
Looks like this is the area that speaks to the laws:
http://www.adstandards.com/en/Standa...Standards.aspx1. Accuracy and Clarity
In assessing the truthfulness and accuracy of a message, advertising claim or representation under Clause 1 of the Code the concern is not with the intent of the sender or precise legality of the presentation. Rather the focus is on the message, claim or representation as received or perceived, i.e. the general impression conveyed by the advertisement.
(a) Advertisements must not contain inaccurate, deceptive or otherwise misleading claims, statements, illustrations or representations, either direct or implied, with regard to any identified or identifiable product(s) or service(s).
(b) Advertisements must not omit relevant information in a manner that, in the result, is deceptive.
(c) All pertinent details of an advertised offer must be clearly and understandably stated.
(d) Disclaimers and asterisked or footnoted information must not contradict more prominent aspects of the message and should be located and presented in such a manner as to be clearly legible and/or audible.
(e) Both in principle and practice, all advertising claims and representations must be supportable. If the support on which an advertised claim or representation depends is test or survey data, such data must be reasonably competent and reliable, reflecting accepted principles of research design and execution that characterize the current state of the art. At the same time, however, such research should be economically and technically feasible, with due recognition of the various costs of doing business.
(f) The advertiser must be clearly identified in an advocacy advertisement.
thats a funny way to do things for sure, all 3 motorcycles we've purchased recently we found on offbeat sales ad,
and have had to drive a good distance for pickup; lets just say i'd be pissed to not find it sitting ready to toss on a trailer
half the fun of purchasing a brand new bike is having the confidence to walk in and be treated well, kinda silly to go purchase a bike if you already know you're gonna have to go somewhere else for recalls or any factory service... yikes

I wonder if the standards Chia posted only apply to "real" ads by companies as opposed to ones on CL.
As others have said, posting the ad they way they have is a little deceptive, to put it politely.
Work sucks -- let's go riding!
You know... there is something so hilarious about this but I can't post it. I'll save it for the next pub night.
There are some people you just do not want to stir up... and I happen to be one of those people.
Long Live Shervin Of The North!
Who cares. They're not the only KTM dealer in the world.
Price is right and all signs point to it coming here. Winning!
In other news Siko is dumping a huge chunk of his KTM stock on the C-list and one of his talking points is serviced at Holeshot. Who's going to give him the word?
Fill the house with bees.
I saw the ad and price and got maybe a bit too excited haha interesting perspectives about hole shot though :/
"suitable for A2 driving licence"
They even copy/pasted the description from an advertisement in some other market. Awesome. I love seeing professionals at work.
"Yamaha" - it's Japanese for "fuck your sports car."
