Trying to buy one
« on: March 01, 2017, 04:41:21 PM »
I've tried 3 dealerships to try and set up a deal for a 2017 Sport SE, and business must be so good they don't need my money.

Which ones have you tried? When I enquired about the XR I eventually purchased the dealer was in touch very quickly. It wasn't just the pre sales stuff either, when I contacted them after getting the bike about the code plug they sent it out in the post on the same day I got in touch.

So, dealer in Guernsey/Jersey, CW Motorcycles and the London one, was that Park Lane by any chance?

Damn.......was it so obvious. As it happens I did leave my phone home today and missed a call from CW's. Will call them tomorrow.

A friend runs Bahnstormer in Maidenhead, and will beat any other dealer. Let me know if you want his details.

The factory is behind, demand is so strong.  My Aussie dealer was telling me yesterday that he can't get any XRs for a couple of months....

Seems that the word is spreading... :152:
