posesHI_moto01_colorHow reliable is your bike? Can you predict the unpredictable going wrong? What would you do if it failed after your manufacturer’s standard two-year warranty expires?

Following its initial foray into the two-wheel market with the BMW Club, Warranty Direct, the UK’s leading provider of direct consumer warranties, has extended its mechanical insurance breakdown cover for motorcycle owners.

With the average British rider managing just 83.1 miles a week*, many genuine warranty claims can unfortunately occur outside of the manufacturer’s limited time frame. With less then half of the major factories offering additional protection, such events can prove costly for riders.

Bike Warranty steps in to deliver mechanical peace of mind covering everything from crank failure to dropped valves, suspension compliance to electrical system failure – all from as little as £16.50 a month.

Established from the same people behind consumer championing websites, potholes.co.uk and reliabilityindex.co.uk, Bike Warranty pledges to provide owner’s with unrivalled levels of cover – including protection on faults discovered during routine MoT tests and servicing.

Bike Warranty also breaks the mould by covering wear-and-tear – something often excluded on alternative warranty policies. For comparison, Warranty Direct estimates this to be worth up to 30 percent of the premium.

With comprehensive cover across the Continent, policies cover any bike up to eight years old and 80,000 miles.

In the event of any mechanical failure, Warranty Direct does not apply restrictions on where a bike is repaired. The owner has the right to choose a franchised dealer, an independent garage or specialist.
