If riders are not allowed from take their motorcycle out for a ride during the current pandemic lockdown, then governments and manufacturers should extend registration, warranties and servicing periods.
We notice that in India, KTM, Royal Enfield and Benelli are extending warranties and free service offers for all models.
Benelli is also extending its roadside assistance program.
In Australia, Uralhas extended warranties by three months.
All new motorcycle sales up to June 30, 2020 will also have the extended warranty on top of the standard two-year manufacturer warranty.
What a great move to ensure the loyalty of customers.
Be aware that just because your bike may be idle and not racking up the kilometres to the next scheduled service, it may still need a service. Check your bike’s manual for the maximum time interval between services.
If you don’t rack up the distance, it probably still advises an annual service.
