It would do something in a secondary reaction. Most people are brand loyal to a certain extent. Joe Blow wants to sell his old indy 500 so he can buy a new IQ, but if he can't sell his 500 he won't be able to afford the new IQ. This keeps Poo from making a sale but it also punishes another potential buyer.
Now here's a moral dilemma;
What if Joe Blow is trying to sell his old Indy 500 because he is one of the Osceola, WI plant employee's that's going to be laid off and can't afford the sled anymore. Do you buy the sled and help out one of the people Polaris replaced with mexi-labor or do you still refuse to buy it because it's a Polaris?
