FAQs on Yamaha FZ

My Yamaha bike insurance has already expired. Is vehicle inspection mandatory?

Yes it is mandatory- Fix up an appointment for the inspection of your Yamaha bike. Do note; this can invite a nominal fee. If the insurance company chooses to offer you the coverage, you can make the payment and get the policy in hand. However, if you are lucky enough, inspection may not be mandatory.

How does NCB work in case I buy a second-hand bike? Will I get No-Claim Bonus?

As a new owner it’s your obligation to get the existing two-wheeler insurance transferred in your name within the specified period from the date of transfer of RC. If you fail to do so and if you require raising a claim, the same will not be honored. For a favorable claim, the title on the RC of the two-wheeler and the insurance documents has to match. Also, please understand that the current owner can carry forward his existing No Claim Bonus (NCB) with him. He can use it to seek the premium discount if he purchases a new bike in future. Likewise, as a new owner, you will have to earn this bonus with each claim-free year. You can win a maximum of 50% discount on your own-damage premium with NCB.

Is an online policy valid?

How is third-party insurance different from comprehensive two wheeler insurance?

The third party bike insurance only covers your legal liability for any loss and damages to third party because of your bike. It will not cover you or your bike for any damages suffered. Whereas, a comprehensive bike insurance will cover your bike from instances of theft, fire and vandalism. It also protects from natural disasters such as cyclone, floods, earthquakes, or from civil disturbances such as riots, which damages your bike. A list of what perils are covered will be provided in the policy document. Make sure you go through the list to understand the protection being offered. Along with this, it also covers any legal liability arising due to the damages caused to any third party triggered by your bike.
