My Experience with 'Harley Davidson'
It all began with a test ride. I was a bit dicey on street750 or Iron883. Primarily I loved the look of street 750 than iron883 so I decided to test drive both the machines.
Street 750 was available for test ride but Iron 883 was not. So I did the test drive & found Street 750 very appealing.
When I checked about the availability of both I was told that Street 750 can be delivered in 4-5 days post complete payment & Iron 883 would have 4 mnths waiting approx.
Hence I decided to go for Street 750 & paid the initial booking amount. There was a couple of weeks delay from my side to gather the full payment since I had to sell my Honda CBR.
When I was ready with full payment I got an answer that the waiting period has been extended & no precise date can be committed.
Still I felt Ok because I was quite impressed with Street 750 during the test ride. I was chasing the sales person almost everyday for the delivery date & he assured me that he will deliver ASAP.
He worked really hard & delivered to me in 10-12 days.
Couple of days before I called him & asked him to deliver it to me right away since that day was very important to me. He was convinced & delivered it to me at my home since the date was very important
When I got the delivery it was full of dirt since its raining here.I washed it myself so that it looks new.
Upon my small maiden ride I found that the right signal light is not functioning & this was the first surprise that I did not expect from Harley.
After couple of hours I was about to take my wife for a short ride & I discovered that there is a big new surprise waiting for me, rear flat tire That too in just 20 kms!!! Luckily I was having a air pump at my home so i filled the air & took it to a tire shop to inspect exactly where the puncture is. I was expecting a nail in the tire which can be rectified easily with puncture repair kit but the air was leaking from the neck of the tire valve which can be fixed by HD service center only!!!
There were couple of more surprises which my brother discovered; one was that the HD logo on the right side of the tank is not fitted properly & its peeling out and the second that there is a click sound(cannot express the exact sound) comming from the steering column a similar to what comes from if you have broken bearings
Finally after few calls to the showroom guys they asked me to call HD assistance to get the bike pickup since its totally immobile due to flat tire.
They have now picked up the bike & there is no response yet from the service guys on when will I get my bike back!!!
Its just 48 Hrs of ownership & I'm totally dissapointed with the experience that I had with 'Harley Davidson'.
I have really started feeling that I have made a wrong decision & should have gone for bonnie instead.
My brother was also planning to go for Street 750 & was about to pay for booking but with such an experience he has decided to wait & see the improvement or go for bonnie.
!!!Truly Disappointed & feeling cheated!!!
