    Insurance for Yamaha Two-Wheelers

    Purchasing a two wheeler insurance policy for your bike is mandatory as per the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. Therefore, make sure to assess your coverage needs and opt for either a third-party liability insurance policy or a comprehensive two wheeler insurance policy.

    If you have just purchased a Yamaha motorbike, you should keep in mind that the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has made it mandatory for all new two-wheeler buyers to purchase a 5-year third-party liability insurance cover. You could also choose to purchase the package two wheeler insurance policy that provides a 5-year third-party liability insurance cover and a 1-year own damage cover or a bundled comprehensive two wheeler insurance policy that will provide a 5-year own damage cover and third-party liability cover.

    If you choose to purchase a two wheeler insurance policy with an own damage cover, you can enhance the policy with riders and add-ons such as the Personal Accident Cover for the Pillion Rider and Zero Depreciation Cover among others. These riders can be purchased for an additional premium from your insurance provider.
