Motorcycle Extended Warranty Explained in Detail

Motorcycling is an expensive hobby. These beautiful machines require considerable investments in maintenance and repair. Your motorcycle should be covered by a warranty to avoid high costs in case of a breakdown.

At the time of purchase, all motorcycles come with a manufacturer warranty. Once it expires, you can buy an extended warranty to continue having protection for your motorbike. Considering that your motorcycle is more likely to require repair after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, you should seriously consider getting extended coverage.

What Kinds of Extended Warranties for Motorcycles Exist?

You can buy an extended warranty for your motorcycle from:

  • The manufacturer
  • A third-party warranty provider

In most cases, you need to buy an extended warranty plan before your manufacturer warranty expires. The following table contains an overview of extended warranties offered by the most popular motorcycle manufacturers in the United States. For more details about each manufacturer’s plans, contact a dealership near you.

Each method requires you to take your vehicle to a licensed repair facility for a check-up. If the defect coverage is confirmed, the repair facility should estimate costs and ask the provider’s claims department for authorization to perform service.
