Two Wheeler Consumables Add-On

Two-wheeler consumables are the parts that need to be replaced after a certain amount of time. Consumable parts in a two-wheeler are nuts, bolts, screws, lubricants, engine oil, grease, gearbox oil, distilled water, etc. Since these consumable parts are not covered under the comprehensive insurance plan, the insurers provide add-on cover for it.

The consumable parts and oil depend on the bike, if you own a superbike such as Ducati, BMW, Harley Davidson, then the cost of their consumable parts would be higher and can put a big hole in your pocket in case they require replacement. In such a case, consumable add-on cover in bike insurance can provide you with financial aid.

For instance, you have met with an accident and the consumable items such as engine oil leaked out and some of the nuts and bolts got damaged. If you have a comprehensive insurance plan with consumable add-on cover then the insurer will provide coverage for the replacement of the lost and damaged consumables however in case you do not have this add-on then you will have to bear the cost of replacement of these items.

Why Do You Need Consumables Add-on?

Since a basic comprehensive insurance plan provides coverage for a particular set of things, add-ons such as this one enhance the coverage and provide an extra layer of protection. However, the consumable parts or lubricants of a bike do not cost much but it also depends on the kind of bike you own. If you own an average-priced bike then the consumables would not cost much but if you own a superbike that requires a different than usual set of consumable parts and lubricants then they can cost you much more. Here are some of the benefits of purchasing this add-on:

  • Provides financial aid for the replacement of the consumables.
  • Engine and gearbox oil are covered under this add-on.
  • Better coverage at the time of claim settlement.
  • End to end protection.
  • You can have peace of mind as you won’t have to pay from your pocket.
