That is Kersi Shroff's style and akin to many dealers who double/deal misrepresent he is a complete BS. If you call him he will claim it was someone else's bike/he did have the real pics/pics for representation/forgot to pull it down all excuses not acceptable if you run a proper working used car consultancy as you check mails every day/access your accounts everyday he even responds to internet ads immediately so he can't forget to pull this one down - Mods I hope you are reading this stream as I was sent post edit!
