With the onset of BS6 emission norms, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India limited started offering a 3+3 years warranty coverage. An unmatched package, for an ICE two-wheeler, if you ask me. This though requires you to pay about Rs 1,000 more. Shouldn’t be a problem considering the extended coverage is for three years. However, there are some good bits about the warranty and not-so-pleasant ones that you as a customer need to be aware of. I am not referring to just Honda as a manufacturer but in general the Bajajs, TVS’, Yamahas and Heros in our Indian context. Plus, I will also be specifically telling you about car warranties and should you opt for them or not. Each manufacturer has an individual policy when it comes to warranty claims but the underlying tone in each is the same. Without any further ado, here are the pros and cons.
