KURYAKYN MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICING POLICY 

In order to preserve its reputation for providing customers with high-value products and strong after-sales support,  and to further enhance the Kuryakyn brand image and its competitiveness in the marketplace, Kuryakyn Holdings,  LLC (“Kuryakyn”) is unilaterally instituting a policy of minimum advertised price standards. This Minimum Advertised  Pricing Policy (“MAP Policy”) will become effective June 15, 2017 and applies to distributors and retailers, including catalogs and Internet retailers (collectively, “Resellers”), who resell Kuryakyn products to end users located in the  United States. 

Kuryakyn greatly values the efforts of all Resellers to distribute Kuryakyn products and support our customers. This  MAP Policy is adopted for the benefit of all Resellers and will be uniformly enforced. 

This MAP Policy shall work under the following guidelines: 

  1. Kuryakyn will, from time to time, publish a Schedule of Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (“MSRP  Schedule”) on its internet website, which may be amended or adjusted by Kuryakyn at any time in its sole discretion. The MSRP Schedule will identify the effective date, the Kuryakyn products and the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (“MRSP”) for those products. Each advertisement of a Kuryakyn product identified in the  MSRP Schedule offering more than 10% below the MSRP will be a violation of this MAP Policy. Kuryakyn products not specifically identified in the MSRP Schedule are not subject to this MAP Policy. The initial MSRP  Schedule is enclosed. 
  2. This MAP Policy applies to all advertisements of Kuryakyn products listed on the MSRP Schedule in any and all media, including, but not limited to, flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs,  mail order catalogs, e-mail newsletters, e-mail solicitations, Internet or similar electronic media, television, radio,  and public signage. This MAP Policy is not applicable to any in-store advertising that is displayed only in the store and not distributed to any customer(s). 
  3. The inclusion in advertising of free or discounted products (whether made by Kuryakyn or another manufacturer)  with a product covered by this MAP Policy would be contrary to this MAP Policy if it has the effect of discounting the advertised price of the covered Kuryakyn product more than 10% below the MSRP. 
  4. A visible strikeout, deletion, or alteration of any price in any Internet advertising is strictly prohibited. It is a  violation of this policy to advertise that a customer may “call for price” or “email for price” or “add to cart for price”,  or to use similar language.  
  5. This MAP Policy applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which Kuryakyn products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual consumer within Resellers’ retail location or over the telephone. Resellers remain free to sell these products at any prices they choose under these circumstances. 
  6. This MAP policy does not establish maximum advertised prices. All resellers may offer Kuryakyn products at any price in excess of the MSRP. 
  7. Internet auctions may not display or have a reserved bid or other acceptable prices more than 10% below  MSRP.  
  8. Kuryakyn must be specifically excluded from any type of advertised storewide sale or promotion if the promotion is perceived to discount Kuryakyn more than 10% below the MSRP. Advertised coupons, dealer bucks, etc. are allowed as long as they are for future storewide purchases only. Dealers must not include statements in advertising or options related to Kuryakyn that may lead consumers to perceive the offer of prices is below 10%  off MSRP.
  9. Pricing listed on any Internet site is considered an “advertised price” and must adhere to this MAP Policy. No matter how the pricing is associated with an intent to purchase (added to shopping cart or order), the price is still considered the advertised price and is bound by this MAP Policy. Discounts applied at checkout to the entire order based on a customer’s purchasing history with the Reseller, such as discounts for “frequent shoppers”, do not violate this MAP Policy. 
  10. This MAP Policy is solely within Kuryakyn’s discretion and authority acting through the duly authorized managers of Kuryakyn. No employee or sales representative of Kuryakyn has any authority to discuss, modify or grant exceptions to this MAP Policy. Any representation or action by any employee, sales representative or persons not specifically authorized to discuss, modify or grant exceptions to this MAP Policy under this paragraph is unauthorized and invalid. All questions about this MAP Policy should be in writing and directed via U.S. Mail to  MAP Policy Administrator, Kuryakyn Holdings, LLC. 454 County Road VV Somerset, WI 54025, or via email  mapadministrator@kuryakyn.com who will respond only in writing. No oral communications about this MAP  Policy are authorized. The MAP Policy Administrator shall be solely responsible for determining whether a  violation of the policy has occurred, communicating decisions to Resellers regarding the policy and receiving any communications regarding sanctions imposed under this MAP Policy. Any action taken by Kuryakyn under this  MAP Policy shall be without liability to Kuryakyn. 
  11. From time to time, Kuryakyn may choose to offer special promotions on certain products. In such an event, we reserve the right to modify or suspend this MAP Policy in whole or in part by notifying all Resellers of the duration and nature of the change. Kuryakyn further reserves the right to adjust the MSRP with respect to all or certain products at its sole discretion. Such changes shall apply equally to all Resellers. 
  12. Distributors of Kuryakyn products will supply a copy of this MAP policy to any new or existing Resellers for their records. 
  13. This policy only relates to current & active Kuryakyn products. Any products deemed as closeout or having a  discontinued status are not subject to this policy.  

This MAP Policy has been established by Kuryakyn to help ensure Kuryakyn’s position as a top producer of high quality products and to protect the reputation of its name and products. This MAP Policy is also designed to avoid destructive intra-brand conflict and to ensure that dealers and distributors have the incentive to invest resources into services for Kuryakyn customers.
