Honda Dealer Gone
So after years and years and years of dealing with Honda and the watercraft line, me dealer said go ahead and take them away.
The one year they finally have something I'm truly interested in and Honda pulls the franchise.
My dealer decided Ducati was a better avenue than the watercraft line, which I can understand BUT CRAP, I'm still pissed!!
This will probably take Honda off my list unless I find another dealer withing reason.
Man why does this sound just like the route Polaris took.

It is a dam shame. With all the R&D and $$ Honda must have invested in the new ski only to pull the rug out from under some of their best dealers. Even a superior product doesn't have a chance to succeed if there are no dealers left to sell and service it. What are they thinking ??

Not that it's bad because I love the new Yami BUT Honda has almost assured that I buy something other than their craft.
I think this is a good reason for Honda to understand why they SHOULD let their dealers have multiple lines. Losing a sale to competition is one thing but to lose the sale due to lack of availability..........well that just isn't smart.

So I found another dealer roughly 1 hour from me but of course I don't know anybody there and it just kills me to have to deal with strangers when I've been in the industry for so damn long.

Honda is slitting their own throats...and it sounds like they want it that way. This whole "Honda Only" thing might work with cars and bikes, but nobody can deal with it for something as tiny as the watercraft industry.
