Last mintute price rise ??

How many of you have been told about the last minute prise rise to 10299?

Two dealers told me yesterday.

In others news....

One dealer has told me if i pay in full when the bikes arrives i can have one off the next batch, even if their are people who
ordered before me. He says the reason is because some people who have order bikes can't afford them yet.

Another well respected dealer called me back yesterday afternoon with an estimate of May for delivery.

It's quite interesting the views about MV and the importer you get from different dealers. most are good about MV but the importer not so good.

As someone who salesteam has 97% customer satisfaction I am surprised they allow their reputation to become so bad amongst dealers and
customers, I have no doubt in person they are all jolly nice chaps but they really do need to start answering phones / emails and call people
back, if they are too busy then employ more people.

So what to do now, I thought about going to my dealer today to make him aware that if my bike does not come by the end of april he
has lost my business and i will be having my deposit back, one things for sure i won't be paying the extra 300!

The general opinion is the next batch is due in two to three weeks?

Does anyone know who MotoGB's dealer are? i thought one was Bennets but they said they are not.

hope everyone is ok

oh ok cool, quite a few then, no wonder they are busy! I noticed their head office is a house according to the address.

I was planning to drive down today but don't fancy and 3 hour journey when I could be spending the day off with my daughter.

I might try and call them or one of their dealers

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated

Main MV dealers out of the list of Moto GB owned shops are Millenium, Robinsons and Orrell, you will probably get more truth from these as they directly owned by Moto GB, which is Keith J Mason.....................KJM superbike. he's come a long way from his wooden shed in the 90's importing parrallels

I just spoke to a guy at Preston Superbikes, he is making a call on my behalf to see what he can find out, I have said if he can get me one sooner I will order from him.

I probably won't call an others now as Preston are part of MotoGB, I have spoken to his MD twice in the past so he should remember me, he will when he reads my email anyway.

He told me a customer has already taken delivery last friday and he ordered in December 2010 like I did

I meant to say earlier Forza Italia at silverstone got 4 bikes which included 1 ORO. Obviously all sold.

the search continues..........

It's a lovely feeling that anticipation of a new bike. more so when it's so special

Getting somewhere now, well as best as I can do under the circumstances.

Just spoke to another dealer who is a friend of the guy at MotoGb who has been tasked with the job
of allocating the bikes when they arrive, he also very kindly said he would put a call in to see what
he can find out.

imagine if he calls back and says they haven't got an order for you!!

I'm waiting on three call backs now and it seems despite the recent bad press the demand is still huge, dealers can't get enough of them.

I also learned that production is approx 30 bikes a day and again another dealer stating next delivery in approx two weeks,
I really hope my bike is one of them

I know I am well excited, my whole family are! I reall can't wait to ride it home then spend a good couple of hours drooling over it in the garden.

I have the polish and micro fibre cloths ready for some serious
buffing

My Garage has never looked so tidy, I spent 4 hours cleaning it and sorting it out the other day.

The money is in my bank too so the cash is ready, I just need the bike now.
