About Zero Depreciation Bike Insurance

Zero depreciation bike insurance is an add-on cover on your comprehensive bike insurance policy. With this cover on your comprehensive two-wheeler insurance plan, the insurer overlooks the depreciation cost of your bike during claim settlements.

Typically, insurers tend to factor in depreciation rate when making settlements; because of this, you do not receive full compensation when your motor vehicle is damaged beyond repair or stolen. Having a comprehensive bike insurance policy with zero depreciation cover eliminates the depreciation factor. The claim amount is paid in full, while only some of it (with basic coverage) is usually borne by you.

Depreciation in Two-Wheeler Vehicles

The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has implemented guidelines for the two-wheeler depreciation rate. The depreciation rate is based on the age of the bike and the following table depicts the same.

Benefits of Zero Depreciation Bike Insurance

Having a comprehensive bike insurance plan with zero depreciation cover offers the following benefits.

  • Higher Claim Settlement

Before resolving your bike insurance claim request, the insurer will factor in the depreciation rate for different components. As we saw earlier, bike components have a varied depreciation rate, based on which your claim settlement amount is calculated. With zero depreciation cover on your comprehensive car insurance plan, the insurer eliminates the depreciation factor when calculating your settlement amount. Therefore, you receive higher compensation.

  • Enhanced Coverage

Zero depreciation is an add-on cover on your basic bike insurance policy. It enhances the policy coverage and almost reduces your out-of-pocket expenses to zero. At a nominal premium over and above your basic bike insurance plan, you can avail optimum coverage and a better claim settlement with zero depreciation cover.

  • Repair Expenses Without Depreciated Value

Any expense incurred when replacing or repairing the damaged bike parts is taken care of by the insurer when you have zero depreciation insurance. The same will reflect in the compensation amount when a claim request is raised against your bike insurance policy.
