Hey all. I've been watching and reading the posts in this forum for years now and thought I would post something that has recently got me a bit cranky! 12 months ago I got my learners and went to buy a bike. I bought a yamaha yzf-r125. It cost me $7000 and the the guys at the dealership assured me it was a quality bike and that it would hold it's value as a learner legal bike. At the time I lived 5 minutes from work and the top speed limit was 60, so it seemed like a good bike for that first 12 months. Now I've got my opens I went back to Yamaha to get the bike I always wanted and was told that my bike is now worth nothing as a trade-in as it is being replaced next month by the Yzf-r15, which has more power and is $3000 cheaper!!!! This really does not seem fair. I'm happy to take the loss from new to used and the greater loss trading-in versus private sale, but to lose that much money due to a company blatantly screwing over a customer is really quite infuriating. I know if Holden released a new, more powerful Commodore for $10000 less than the old one there would be riots!!! I'm not sure what, if anything, I can do about this but I just wanted some opinions and a chance to vent. The end result is that I'm stuck with a bike that I no longer want with a much lower value than I owe. Yeah, not happy. Thanks for listening. Tim.
