Maybe thats the way this dealer sells all their used bikes. Shame.
Had the same thing happen here in West CO at a Suzuki Dealer. Found they had a used Victory, so I asked to ride it. they had a little trouble firing it up, and they had had it on the battery charger for awhile. I got on it and took off and almost went over the handle bars as it stuttered and coughed and stumbled. Almost didn't make it safely back to the shop. I had to go around the block on the thing, running so bad it was pathetic, to get back and park it. I went in, told the manager that that bike is dangerous in present condition, and his facial expression told me I don't ever want to do business with them if I can help it. I told him the condition, and he says, it's running fine ... lots of power. Yeah right!
