Why do you lot take dealer finance .... HP or PCP???

A bank loan is half the Apr generally and you can exactly what you want with the bike and do as many miles as you want

Dunno why you lot fall for it Image
Nice coffee?

Many people fall for the '"it's only xx a month" without doing the maths

Do the dull thing, wait and save and it's even cheaper :lol:
Wait!!! Really I don’t understand that word, replace it with Shiny I want!!

I must say I am of the same mindset, paying x amount for a bike then being limited with mileage allowance etc.

But then I tend to be way out to left field compared to most my age in that I never buy anything on tick, I only got a credit card a few years ago to make vehicle rental abroad less of a pain and to book holidays with more protection and it gets paid off at the first request, I think nothing of saving a year or two to buy something and even then I really have to want it to pay retail rather than used when it comes to large purchases (Car,Bike etc).

Each to their own I guess...

Seems to me that manufacturers don't intend their products to be actually used. Most modern bikes seem to be intended to be ridden for short distances in fine weather, then traded for a new one with more electronic features.

It's only a matter of time before your new motorcycle will be delivered with a head-up display giving a rider's eye view of the world's scenic routes, and you can sit on it and watch them while sitting in your garage.

One of the things I really like about the Royal Enfield 650 is that there are no modes, screens or stupid little switches: you can just start it up and ride without worrying whether you left the wheelie control switched off.
This is good indeed.

A bit of an update.... Even Honda Finance don't seem to have a clue what they are doing either and cant understand English.

So about 3 weeks ago, I was asked by one of the Honda Finance people this question.

"Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, as the company that provided the relevant finance to aid the purchase of this bike, we are responsible for the quality of the bike at the point of supply. In order to assist our investigations, are you in a position to provide any evidence to demonstrate that the outstanding issue with the bike was inherent when the bike was supplied on 29 June 2018?"

I replied back with a email I got from the manufacture. From this there is a section under Fuel tank that I will re highlight.

"This is because we believe that the fuel tank from new contains reminents of substances from the factory which shed over time, causing debris in the fuel tank and blocking the pump, injectors etc. This is why our recommended warranty repair is to have the tank washed out and thoroughly cleaned to rectify the issue as the substance will no longer be present. "

But after speaking to the customer services girl at Honda, this was not good enough!!!

I am really confused as to why Honda Finance will not except this? As a fault!!!!

So I have an email from Honda, the manufactures, stating that the fault was there from the factory, both times in both tanks. But this is not good enough for Honda Finance as a reason to say the bike was faulty from new.

Maidstone Honda are the only people that have worked on the fuel system, so how else am i supposed to prove that the tanks were faulty from new. I don't build the damn thing and didnt replace the second tank..... i feel im getting the run around.

I still have to wait 5 weeks before i can take it to the FOS and complain to the governing body....

And to top it all Honda are no fixing the bike, replacing all the faulty bits without my authority. But I have rejected it!!!!!

Si
They are rather complicating the whole scenario, why don't they just own up and do the right thing.

I really don't understand the new bike thing. I'm a fan of late 90s Hondas and similar--quality and uncomplicated and easy to service and fix. The first turn of the wheel on a new bike (whatever the deal, PCP or whatever) and you have committed to, and lost thousands--yet for about a grand you can own something really nice outright that will always be faster than you--and if it goes pop (extremely rare as the bugs will have been sorted by then) then you'll never lose much. There is something deeply satisfying about bimbling along at the legal limit knowing that what you are riding is 18 times cheaper than the tank in front, and about half the weight, and with probably better fuel consumption, and that your debt in terms of CO2 emissions involved in the mining and manufacture of the bloody thing has long since been paid. Lets reCYCLE !!
