Get a life­time guar­an­tee on your next ma­chine

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week In Mcn -

UK deal­er­ships are giv­ing bike buy­ers even more rea­son to pur­chase with con­fi­dence by of­fer­ing tremen­dous deals on used bike war­ranties. Fancy a free life­time guar­an­tee, or per­haps never pay­ing for an MOT again? Or what about two years Euro­pean break­down re­cov­ery? It’s all out there for the tak­ing.

No wor­ries… for life

Some show­rooms are re­flect­ing the faith they have in mod­ern re­li­a­bil­ity by of­fer­ing to ex­tend the nor­mal two-year war­ranty and un­der­write parts and labour on ev­ery new and used bike sold for as long as you own the ma­chine.

Cam­bridgeshire’s Wheels Mo­torcy cl es(www. wheels mo­tor­cy­cles. co.uk) are tak­ing the lead by of­fer­ing all buy­ers of one of their new or used stock a free life­time guar­an­tee. Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Neil Steen says it’s a gen­uinely gim­mick-free of­fer de­signed to en­sure cus­tomers keep com­ing back to his showroom: “There are no com­pli­cated or ex­tra terms and con­di­tions to this guar­an­tee, we sim­ply ex­tend what would be our nor­mal used bike war­ranty con­di­tions for the life­time that you own the ve­hi­cle. We sim­ply ask that you main­tain the ve­hi­cle at its nor­mal ser­vice in­ter­vals (first ser­vice 600 miles then gen­er­ally 4000 to 6000 miles or an­nu­ally) with our­selves. The of­fer ap­plies to all Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Aprilia bikes over 250cc that are 10 years old or newer, with fewer than 30,000 miles on the clock. We even throw in free Mots for life. This guar­an­tee takes the risk and wor­ries away from the pur­chaser and leaves it with us the dealer.”

Bridge Mo­tor­cy­cles in Ex­eter (www. bridge­mo­tor­cy­cles.com) were the first to of­fer free war­ranties with their scheme launched in 2011. The of­fer ap­plies to new bikes only, and there are re­stric­tions on the mods you can make, but with bikes be­com­ing in­creas­ingly re­liant on ex­pen­sive elec­tronic com­po­nen­try it could be a way of tak­ing the worry out of fu­ture ex­pen­sive po­ten­tial re­li­a­bil­ity is­sues, es­pe­cially if more deal­er­ships choose to fol­low suit.
