To keep up with the highly competitive two-wheeler market in India, the Pulsar receives technological upgrades at constant intervals.

Riding safe and riding securely are two different things; it is a two wheeler insurance that makes all the difference, while the Pulsar assures top performance with due maintenance and care, when on the road, your Pulsar is vulnerable to damage, regardless.
Loss or damage to your bike or scooter due to unexpected accidents can burden you financially and emotionally, although you may be an experienced rider.
By taking up a Bajaj Two Wheeler Insurance with Finserv MARKETS, you can be assured of comprehensive protection against risks such as accidents, theft, losses caused due to both natural and man-made disasters etc.

There are basically two types of two wheeler insurance plans available in the market.
Third Party Bike Insurance
Comprehensive Bike Insurance
Third party bike insurance is mandatory under the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988. All the third party liabilities are covered under this plan. This means, if your bike happens to cause loss/damage to any third-party person or property, the insurer will compensate for the loss incurred. Since the coverage provided in third party insurance is limited, the premiums charges are less and affordable.
Bike insurance plans come in handy, especially if it covers your precious possession. To safeguard your motorcycle in case of accidents, theft, or loss due to man-made and natural disasters, you should opt for comprehensive coverage.
The comprehensive insurance plan covers all the third-party liabilities. It also provides financial protection to your bike in case of any mishap. The premiums charged are slightly more than third party insurance but are a worthy investment as the policy provides extensive coverage to your vehicle.

Comprehensive Bajaj Pulsar bike insurance at Finserv MARKETS allows you to extend your coverage with add-ons. Add-on covers are purchased over and above your existing comprehensive plan for additional premiums.
One such adequate add-on cover that you should consider buying with your basic insurance plans is as follows -
Zero Depreciation Cover: Over time, every vehicle goes through wear and tear. It thus depreciates the actual value of the vehicle. So, when making a claim, the insurer will factor in depreciation and compensate for the expenses incurred. However, with zero depreciation bike insurance cover under your name, you do not have to pay the depreciation. In simple words, the insurer will compensate for the full amount of the expenses incurred in case of accidents.
You can buy this add-on cover when buying/renewing the comprehensive bike insurance plan at Finserv MARKETS.
