I'm curious to see how they treat the dealers, and how state franchise laws will come into play.
Thanks for the information.

I remember when Polaris dropped their watercraft line - as I recall they lost a personal injury lawsuit and that was partially blamed for the reason they decided to exit the business.

I agree that it will be interesting to see how they treat their dealers - some OEMs have certainly done better than others when it comes to terminating brands.
