The Benefits Of Purchasing An Extended Guarantee For Your Motorcycle

When people first purchased their motorcycle, they were caught up in a little bit of a dilemma. They were offered an extended guarantee on their new motorcycle, but they weren’t sure if it made sense, financially. They have already decided to buy a Honda motorcycle, and so they know, that the motorcycle is going to give them years of trouble-free riding, all around the United Kingdom, and further afield. Why then, would they need to take an extended guarantee on a motorcycle brand, that they already trust. However, on reflection, and further down the line, many of them wish that they had taken their dealership up, on this excellent offer.

If you’re thinking of purchasing a motorcycle from, then you should seriously consider purchasing the extended guarantee, because no matter how confident you are in a motorcycle’s brand, nobody really knows what’s going to happen further down the road, and if you are one of the unlucky ones that buys a motorcycle, that is going to give you grief, just after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired. The following are some of the reasons why an extended guarantee makes sense.

  1. It provides you with confidence – You need to think about this for a moment. If the manufacturer is prepared to offer you the initial warranty on the motorcycle from new, and is then going to offer you a further guarantee for a period of time, then this has to provide you with real confidence, that the manufacturer knows what the bike is capable of. In the event, that you make a sudden unintended acceleration on your motorbike, you want to feel safe in the knowledge that your motorcycle has been built to handle things like this. In the unlikely event that something does go wrong after the original warranty has expired, it’s going to save you a lot of money in repair costs, if you have the extended guarantee.
  • Replace, rather than repair – If you find that you are having issues with the engine, and it happens after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, then you have two choices to make. You can either fix it, or replace it, and we all know which one is a better option. However, if you don’t have the necessary finances, then you’re going to have to fix it, and hope that it doesn’t break down again. With the extended guarantee, and the engine is beyond repair, then it will be replaced in full. For government assistance with regard to extended guarantees, have a look here.
  • It is very affordable – When you think of all the money that you’re going to spend on upgrading your motorcycle, and adding some bits to it, it could run into many hundreds of pounds. However, this doesn’t really add any real value to your motorcycle, but taking out an extended guarantee, does. When you compare the cost of purchasing the extended guarantee, and the cost of having to buy new parts, and to have them fitted with a Honda mechanic, it makes a lot more financial sense to opt for the extended guarantee.

Here we have three reasons, why it makes sound financial sense to purchase an extended guarantee when you buy a motorcycle. Many motorcycle owners wish that they did take advantage of this excellent offer, so make sure that you don’t make the same mistake.
