The stages of warranty....
Buying a leftover 08, that was my first question. Dealer/Owner reassured me that at this point, it was certainly not the original battery (He got bike from Victory from a closed dealer's stock). Then, he tested it and handed me the printout (fine). Then, he told me that it would be covered under my year's warranty, and after that it would be a "consumable" despite my added year's warranty.
I'd say you are due a battery if still within your year's original warranty, especially given the fact that you have been maintaining it with their freebee charger!
Oh and BTW, That they claimed to do a "check" but never started it is complete BS. Didn't you sign the big 11x17 "Certificate of Pre-Delivery" check list for delivery prep, that includes a ROAD TEST section (your copy is pink, factory is yellow and dealer is white)? Because I was buying an unfamiliar bike, I instructed them to test ride it, and I was reassured that they would do that in any event. Absent that, you've got the dealer by the short ones with Victory policy.

When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
