Do you honestly believe once the bike leaves the freight truck, it never gets moved around? Bikes are constantly moved. Sometimes several times in one day. New bikes get un-crated, and they all filter through the service department for PDI. Some of them get transported in trucks or trailers before they are sold. They can be moved from one dealer to another dealer. The "loading dock" is only one small step in their long journey to your garage.
They're probably going to just swap it with the new bike they get it. You're not really going to get that good of sound or performance from a slip on exhaust on a 320cc parallel twin. Take it back and swap it if it bothers you that much. There's much better things to spend money on than an exhaust IMO
Here is a picture from when I picked up the bike Wednesday morning. If you zoom in on the muffler, the scrape/scuff is clear as day.
And here is the picture they are using to try and prove that it was fine (taken the day before pick up, at night, in their service shop)
Though, the picture they are using is irrelevant. Anything could have happened between then and when I picked it up. And the time stamp is pretty clear that it was before I had even sat on the bike.
