Well my Dorso was taken back to the dealers for the 2nd Warranty claim in 9 months with only 900 miles on the clock. This time a bearing in the gearbox has gone. I've decided that I've had enough of it, so I've been looking to see what else is around that I can trade it on for in terms of going back to a sports bike.
Anyway, 11am this morning I get a call from the dealer. They've had a break in overnight and guess what.....my bike got stolen. It's been recovered, but only after the theiving scum crashed it, causing an estimated £2,000 worth of damage.
Clearly this is going to take ages to get repaired and to be honest, I don't want it back now that it's effectively a recovered stolen.
Anyone know how I should best approach this? The bike is mint, 900 miles on the clock.
Should I :-
1) Insist that they replace it for new or refund the full purchase price?
2) Get the 2nd hand value of the bike knocked off a new bike? (Bit of an issue as they don't have anything in there that I'd buy).
3) Get them to settle the outstading finance - £5,200 and call it quits?
4) Something else.
At the end of the day this is their problem, with it being in their care and them leaving the keys in it.
Any suggestions on how I should approach this?
