Yamaha Financial Services is proud to announce the winner of the ‘Win Your Yamaha’ contest is Kevin Higney from Oshawa, ON. Kevin purchased a 2017 Kodiak EPS SE from Asselstine Country in Blackstock, ON. As a result of being selected as the lucky winner, Kevin had his down payment and monthly payments on his 2017 Kodiak EPS SE reimbursed, and the rest of his loan paid off. Kevin also received Yamaha apparel and accessories as part of the winning prize package, but what happened next was really unexpected. Immediately after surprising Kevin of his prize win at Asselstine Country, he immediately forwarded the reimbursement cheque to Floyd Asselstine, dealer principal, as payment on a brand new Yamaha Raptor 90 ATV!

Customers that financed a Yamaha product with Yamaha Financial Services from November 1, 2016 to March 15, 2017 were automatically entered in a draw to win the value of their purchase. The promotion helped celebrate Yamaha Financial Services entry into the retail finance lending market, and reward those who chose Yamaha as their provider.

Peter Hastings, president of Yamaha Financial Services commented, “One of our key strengths as both a manufacturer and lender is that we feel we understand the needs of our customers better. This promotion demonstrates some of the flexibility and customer service people can expect from Yamaha Financial Services.”

For his part, Higney was very excited to learn he was now the winner of the contest. “I was doing my research and Yamaha kept standing out to me among the competitive brands… As far as financing, it was an easy concept to understand. Asselstine’s was great at explaining the fundamental process; [the process] was straightforward and allowed me to choose the payment options that was best for me.”

In July, 2016, Yamaha Motor Finance Canada Ltd. launched its retail finance program. With a vital understanding of motorsport and marine customers, Yamaha Financial Services has now helped thousands of enthusiasts finance units across Canada.
