Importance of Thunderbird 350 Insurance

Royal Enfield is known to make some of the best cruisers with great safety features. However, in case of any unforeseen events like accidents, theft, etc. the recovery cost of your bike or the damage caused to it could incur significant expenses that may be as high as ₹10,000 or more. Hence, it is necessary to cover your Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 with adequate bike insurance to stay financially protected during such events.

Types of Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 Insurance Plans

According to the Motor Vehicles Act of 2019, you must have third-party liability insurance for any two-wheeler you own. Aside from that, Bajaj Markets offers a comprehensive insurance plan. In general, these two categories are described as follows:

  • Third-Party Coverage -

    This is a basic plan that covers damage and injury to third parties or third-party property caused by your two-wheeler. Accident coverage for the driver of the covered vehicle is also included in such a plan. Furthermore, it protects you against any permanent disability or death that may occur while driving.

  • Comprehensive Coverage -

    This type of coverage insures damages to you and third parties and provides you with more benefits than third-party insurance. It not only ensures legal compliance, but it also provides additional financial security. Although the premiums for this type of insurance may be higher than for a third-party plan, you will be fully covered. Damages from theft and natural disasters are also covered under this plan.

What is Included in Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 Insurance?

A third-party bike insurance only provides coverage for injuries or damages caused to a third party by your bike. Whereas, comprehensive bike insurance not only covers third-party liabilities but also covers the damages caused to your own bike due to man-made or natural disasters, accidental damages, personal accident coverage as well as coverage for additional passengers, etc.

What is Not Included in Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 Insurance?

Bajaj Markets offers two-wheeler insurance policies that do not include expenses for normal usage and the resulting wear and tear on your vehicle, loss or damage caused by malevolent intent, damage or harm caused by driving under the influence of intoxicants or alcohol, etc.
