Matte metal corrosion isses

We bought a 300 brand new and after about a month we noticed white corrosion on almost all of the black matte parts. Went to two other dealers and looked at the same bikes and found out that they did not have this issue. Only the dealer we went to seemed to have this issue. We walked around our dealers showroom floor and found two more 300's and also a Honda CBR that had the exact same issue. Not sure if it was a Honda defect or the dealer keeping it out in the rain or weather. Just wanted to know if anyone else has seen this type of issue with their 300 or 500.

First time I have seen something like that. Hope your dealer will step up and fix/replace the corroded parts.

That is definitely odd. Not sure what could even cause that kind of issue. Don't have that problem on my bike.
