Motorcycle Apparel Cover
Motorcycle apparel cover is covered when it is accidentally damaged as a result of an incident giving rise to a claim.
There is no additional cost to include your riding gear and helmet. You and your pillion can claim up to $4000 per incident and $2000 per item. (refer to the PDS for full details)
Replacement Bike Cover
If your motorcycle is written off in the first two years, we’ll replace it with a new motorcycle of the same make, model or series when readily and locally available or pay out the sum insured.
Agreed Value / Market Value
You can decide which type of cover suits you best. Agreed Value and Market Value policy types are available for most bikes. (Some conditions apply).
Choice is the main benefit here. Most riders prefer one or the other, both cover types offer great value.
- Agreed Value provides peace of mind of knowing exactly what you'll receive in the event of a total loss.
- Market Value means you will receive the true value of your bike at the time your bike is written off. You don't have to predict the value of your bike at some future date.
