Default Fuel it demo day question.

Hello, Its my understanding after a demo ride a discount or extended warranty is offered. My question is, is this offer only available at the dealership where the demo was taken or can it be used at the dealership of your choice. Thank you.

I've attended two rides and they (the Victory truck people) issued me a coupon worth $1000 of accessories. I've taken this coupon to various dealers who would apply it to the purchase of the bike as well, not just accessories.

Victory is giving the 2nd year warranty as part of their promotion and is independent upon the Fuel-it demo rides.

The hosting dealer PAYS a bunch of money for the truck to be there, and they are the only people that can be funded for the coupon from big Vic.
Some other dealers may SHOW a discount on their bikes to get your sale, but beware the price that you started with. That is what sales is about

KevinX is correct; the dealer that sponsors the demo truck has to pay for it to show. It would be a slap in the face if coupons given because of that dealer were used at a dealer that opted to turn down the chance of sponsoring the truck.
It's just not right...

Yes, the dealer sponsors the truck but Victory gives the coupon. If I were the sponsoring dealer, I'd do everything to make the Fuel-in-Ride at my dealership a success. I'd have special deals, attentive sales persons, and make it so that the riders would WANT to buy from them.

But what do you do if the dealer does not have special deals or attentive sales people and to make matters worse, doesn't have the bike you want in stock? We all know that dealers would rather sell what they have in stock over dealer trading or ordering a new one from the factory.

The Victory truck guy was very clear that the coupon could be used at ANY Victory dealership. A slap in the face - humm, I think the dealership owner should slap the sales manager for spending the $$ to get the truck there and NOT providing customer service for the riders to WANT to purchase the bike from them.

I live 1 1/2 hours from the closest Victory dealer... and another 25+ to the next.

The last one I went to I showed up at 10:00am and the Victory guy had all the bikes out looking nice, pretty and ready to ride. The dealership didn't have anyone to "lead" us until about 1:00pm. This was mid-week... but I found it inexcuseable.

We have hosted several events, and hate to tell you, but the truck guy was wrong. Coupons are redeemed through the hosting dealer period. The coupons are marked, and acouted for. As for a dealer that hosts a truck, but does not prepare for it. That is his mistake, and as I said earlier. Some dealers will act like they are taking your coupon. It is just a discount, and they get nothing back from Vic. If you are gonna roll that card. Make your best deal before you bust out the coupon on them.

Kevinx, it is interesting that the coupon says: "...take this offer to the nearest dealer" and not "the dealer that sponsored the demo." I'm just sayn' what I was told and what the coupon leads one to believe. You bet I'll be making the best deal I can before bringing out the coupon. BTW, I've been lurking here for 6 months and like many others, I too want to thank you for your expertise.
