Is this a Scam or What?

Got this marketing email. Electronics and stuff and they have some Late Model New Honda's. If it is legitimate, there would still shipping and set up. They say 500$ to ship to Calif where I live. I wonder if it's possible. Could also be issues with DOT certifications, but sure is cheap. You know what they say "if it's to good to be true". .... four other models too.

Isn't that a kick in the head to all the Honda dealers around. They certainly seem to have a lot of electronics/computers and cameras on the home page.
They would make more money if they could charge more for their motorcycles
Perhaps they're selling motorcycle pictures!
The clock times at the bottom of the page are wrong.
Who will be the first one to buy one and find out?
Not me!
Buyer beware EH!
