I recently got me a brand new 2016 fz 09 It was supposed to be brand new right out of the box! It took me a few days to pick up 13 to be exact. When I finally got to the dealer, and put key in bike, The ODO read 14 miles I am like wtf ohh well stoked on the bike all should be good. about two weeks later I get my spools and a stand under it. and damn it. The oil pan has a huge gouge and scratch ding in the pipe, along with gouges on the bottom of each fork. I have put a few hundred miles on the bike but I sure as hell didn't hit any thing. Contacted the dealer, and their like OHH yeah we let the bike go on a couple test rides! Darn it Iam bummed over this.
Wow. Totally unacceptable. What is the dealer going to do about it?
Demand a new exhaust system and oil pan, but I would leave the original pan in place. Minor touch-up on the bottom of the fork. I know this sucks, and I would feel somewhat bummed too, but don't knock yourself out on this. Did the dealer offer anything?
I would demand my money back and buy from other dealer. how the f*** they didn't mention that people have test rode the bike.

Refund and take your business elsewhere. Not worth trusting these sleeve balls.
Ride to work, work to ride.
I mean seriously though why the hell, would a brand new bike be sent on a test Ride?
Wrecked is a bit of an exaggeration but I agree with everyone here, take it back and ask for a full refund to the penny, including tags, fees, taxes. Make sure you are familiar with your consumer protection laws that give you the right to do this. Here in Ontario Canada we have consumer protection act which allows a vehicle transaction like this to be returned within a reasonable timeframe strictly for misrepresentation including odometer reading and vehicle condition. Go in there with the information you need and don't get bullied or talked down to sway your decision. Only when they acknowledge this will they truly be willing to either A) make it right with you from a price point of view to reflect the used condition of bike, or B) take you seriously and refund your money.
Don't let them try to blow you off with time either, many of the consumer protection legislations have time limitations. Give them notice in writing of this decision and the justification for it (briefly) and give them 24 hours to issue you a full refund. That's what I would do.
