2013 Stella 4T

I need some opinions on why my new 2013 Stella 4T is pulling to the right.
I purchased this Stella from a dealer as new with 126 miles on it. I noticed that it pulls hard to the right, (I need to apply pressure to the right bar to ride straight) hands off is out of the question, dealer says all of them do it because the engine is on the right, I rode Vespa's many years ago, I don't remember this quirk.
In addition I noticed that the tire treads does not appear to be symmetrical on both front and rear. (tread radius on the left side is different than the right, or tighter on the right than the left) any suggestions?

Good guess is a bent fork. Sad

Is pulling to the right normal on a Stella 4T?

Steddy Teddy has it, I also found the rear tracking 1.3" to the right of the front tire, and the fork was bent approx 1.5 Deg. Genuine is helping out, but I had to deliver it to the dealer in LA about a 2.5 hour drive each way.
Thanks for the input guys. Very Happy
