Features and Benefits of Two-wheeler Insurance

Here are some of the features and benefits of two-wheeler insurance: 

1. Low Premium

The premiums on two-wheeler insurances are quite affordable and are to be paid only once a year. Insurance premiums are a small price to pay for the peace of mind and security that a good two-wheeler insurance can provide.

2. Claim Settled Quickly

Most insurance companies work hard to ensure that claims are settled as quickly as possible. With many talented employees and the latest technology employed, it’s not a surprise that many insurance companies have incurred claim ratios as high as 80%.

3. No Claim Bonus

When you go without making any claims in a given year, you’ll be awarded a ‘No Claim Bonus.’ With this bonus, you may get extensive discounts and leverages on your policy renewal. 

4. Wide Coverage

Depending on your needs and priorities, you can choose a two-wheeler insurance that offers extensive coverage or one that offers basic coverage. Your premium amount would depend on the comprehensiveness of your premium among other factors.

5. Add-Ons

Oftentimes, not all benefits are covered under a single bike insurance policy. If you feel that you'd like additional coverage that’s not covered under your insurance plan, you can purchase add-ons and tailor your bike insurance policy to your needs. These add-ons can include Zero-Depreciation Cover, Consumable Cover, Return to Invoice Cover and Roadside Assistance. 

6. Go Cashless

When you purchase a two-wheeler insurance that offers network garage benefit, you needn’t make payments for repairs done with network garages. 

Types of Bike Insurance in India

1. Third-Party Bike Insurance

third-party two wheeler insurance is a legally mandated insurance policy that takes care of the damages caused to a third-party (including person or property). A 3rd party bike insurance is mandatory by law in India under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.

2. Comprehensive Bike Insurance

comprehensive bike insurance policy is essentially a combination of  both third-party liability insurance and own-damage cover. This is ideal for anyone looking for extensive coverage. 

3. Own-Damage Cover

own damage (OD) cover will cover damage to your vehicle. This means that in the event of an accident, the cost of repair of your two-wheeler will be covered by your insurance provider. 

Third-Party Vs Standalone OD Cover Vs Comprehensive Bike Insurance


Third-Party Bike Insurance

Standalone OD Cover

Comprehensive Bike Insurance


Third-party bike insurance is a mandatory policy that covers damages caused to third-party. A third-party bike insurance is legally mandated in India under  the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.

A standalone OD cover will cover for any damages caused to your vehicle in the event of an accident. 

A comprehensive bike insurance is essentially a combination of both third-party two-wheeler insurance and own-damage cover. 


A Third-party Bike Insurance offers coverage against third-party damages only. 

A Standalone OD Cover will only cover damages against your insured two-wheeler. 

A Comprehensive Bike Insurance will cover both third-party liabilities as well as damages caused to your vehicle. 


Not only is a Third-party Cover a legally mandated insurance plan, it will also protect you against traffic fines and other third-party liabilities. 

A Standalone OD Cover will provide you with extensive coverage against damages caused by natural disasters as well as man-made accidents. You can also choose to purchase add-ons if you need to. Additionally, you can also benefit from a ‘No Claim Bonus.’

A Third-party Cover will cover both third-party damages and damages caused to your own two-wheeler. You can also purchase add-ons to make your insurance even more extensive. In case you don’t make any claims, you will also be rewarded with a ‘No Claim Bonus.’


As a Third-party Cover offers limited coverage, the insurance premium is relatively lower. 

A Standalone OD Cover may be slightly higher than other covers in the beginning but it will continue to decrease as your two-wheeler gets older. 

Since a Comprehensive Cover is quite extensive, the insurance premiums will be relatively higher in the beginning. However, it will continue to decrease with time. 

Rate of Depreciation 

The insurance premium is not affected by the rate of depreciation. 

The insurance premium will be affected by the rate of depreciation.

The premium amount will be affected in proportion to the Standalone OD Cover part of the insurance premium amount. 

Bike Insurance Inclusions

Here are some common inclusions in a Comprehensive Bike Insurance: 


  • Loss or damage caused to your two-wheeler due to natural or man-made events.

  • Damage caused to your vehicle by third-party will be covered.

  • Repair and replacement costs incurred due to an accident will be covered.

  • Personal accidents will be covered.

  • Damages caused by accidents will be covered.

  • Provisions to cover the pillion and the driver will be provided.

Bike Insurance Exclusions

Here are some common exclusions in a Comprehensive Bike Insurance:


  • General wear and tear of the bike with the passing of time will not be covered.

  • Mechanical breakdowns caused by defective parts will not be covered.

  • Damages caused to the bike while the rider is under the influence of alcohol or other substances will not be covered.

  • Any loss or damages caused while the rider is driving without a valid driver’s licence will not be covered.

  • Any loss or damages caused when the policy is inactive will not be covered.

  • Damages and losses that occur due to war or similar circumstances will not be covered.

Bike Insurance Add-On Covers

Two-wheeler insurances are not one size fits all. This is why you can purchase a wide variety of add-ons to tailor your Standalone OD Cover or Comprehensive Bike Insurance to suit your needs. Here are some of the most common add-ons to help you understand add-ons a little bit better. 

1. Zero-Depreciation Cover

The monetary value of an asset continues to decrease with time due to use, wear and tear or obsolescence. Generally, the burden of bearing the depreciation costs is borne by the owner of the two-wheeler. However, when you purchase a Zero-Depreciation Cover add-on, the cost of depreciation is lowered for you.

2. Round-the-Clock Spot Assistance

With a Round-the-Clock Spot Assistance add-on, you can get access to roadside assistance like toeing, fuel, flat tyre through tyre cover, on-spot repair, etc., in case of accidents or emergencies. 

3. Personal Accident Cover

A Personal Accident Cover is another common add-on cover. It offers protection against accidental injuries to the owner-driver of an insured two-wheeler. You will be offered applicable compensation in case the owner-driver of the two-wheeler suffers from injuries, permanent disability, or death due to the accident.

4. Return-to-Invoice Cover

The Return to Invoice add-on allows the policyholder to get the full invoice price of the two-wheeler in case the insured’s vehicle is stolen, suffers from total loss or constructive total loss. 

5. Engine Protection Cover

Engine Protection Cover is especially important for those who live in flood-prone areas. When you purchase this add-on, you’ll be financially protected against damage to engine parts. 

6. Lock and Key Replacement Cover

With a Lock and Key Replacement cover, you will be compensated if the key is lost, damaged or stolen. In case the lock or key is damaged, you will be compensated as per the insurance provider’s policies as well.

If you’ve made any modifications to your two-wheeler, it’s likely that you might want to get the modifications insured as well which will increase your insurance premium.

Add-on Covers

While add-ons are a great way to tailor your insurance plan to your needs, it’s important to remember that each add-on comes with a price. Know more about the factors affecting your two-wheeler insurance premium.

4. Install Security Devices: Installing security devices brings down the probability of your vehicle being stolen or vandalised.


5. Avoid Unnecessary Add-Ons: While it might be tempting to purchase all available add-ons, it’s important to note that this will increase your insurance premium significantly.
