Get a lifetime guarantee on your next machine
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.
