Our KRT/ABS model showed up earlier this week and we finally got to unwrap her on Saturday. Should be plenty of 400 Videos to come once this **** snow goes away.
Exciting times! Enjoy it once that weather clears a bit.Our KRT/ABS model showed up earlier this week and we finally got to unwrap her on Saturday. Should be plenty of 400 Videos to come once this **** snow goes away.
Dunlop Sportmax radials. This is a step forward for the 300/400 class. Usually they come with bias ply tyres like IRC Road winners ( CBR300 & Ninja 300) or Michelin Pilot sport (R3).You know, with all the excitement,I didn't even notice what kind of tires were on it. Some sort of Bridgestone?
Wow, I wasn't expecting that.Dunlop Sportmax radials.
I'm sure some light modding will come in time. Fender eliminator... I'm sure some levers and an exhaust in time. Nothing too serious. Just can't wait to ride it. You can subscribe to the channel of you like. There will be videos to follow once the weather cooperates.Congrats dude, thanks for sharing your unboxing video. You plan on doing any mods to it? Or are you waiting to get some miles on it first to see how you find it?
Ha! I totally missed that. Could only be worse if we were shooting it from inside an igloo lolAh Canada. Where there’s always Rush playing in the background
And your KRT looks sweet! Have fun!
Not so sure about all other bikes but I do know sometimes the front wheel is removed to lower the overall height of the crate size.Off topic questions: Do all bikes come 90-100% fully assembled? Based on this video, the only thing I noticed that was not installed was the windscreen. When I purchased my bike, the sales guy told me it takes about 3 hours to setup. Other than getting the bike out of the crate and putting in fluids, is anyone familiar with what the dealer actually does to prepare a new bike?
I'm definitely more educated with the dealer fees with my second motorcycle purchase. I did not do a lot of research when I bought the Ducati Scrambler which is a lesson learned. The Ducati dealer added several fees including freight and setup which I thought was the norm. At the end of the day I understand every business needs to generate revenue and positive cash flow but what some of these dealers try to charge for some of these fees is ridiculous. I understand the margins can be very little especially on the lower models/price points but it would still be nice for motorcycle dealers to provide better transparency. If there's no incentive and some customers are willing to pay for these additional fees then they will continue to add these arbitrary costs.Not so sure about all other bikes but I do know sometimes the front wheel is removed to lower the overall height of the crate size.
With the N400's AFAIK they just have to fit the screen, mirrors and activate the battery by pouring the acid in which comes in a separate plastic package. I asked my dealer what he had to do to prep the bike and when he said about the battery I asked him not to activate it. I want to put the OEM battery in the bike fresh when I sell it. I took over my own lithium Ion battery for the first start up.
So any dealer who tries to add on a whole lot of pre delivery charges is trying it on as there's very little for them to do.
