personally, i see it as throwing good money down a hole - instead of repairing the bike right away and getting it on the road, you are possibly ending up with scrap if the legal process drags.

The primary damage seems to be the tank, fairing and exhaust - which though considerable, is not unrepairable.

melroyal, I am sorry I have not read the whole thread in detail so may have missed the details. You say you fell off the bike which is how it got damaged in the first place. How exactly did you fall?

Was this a high speed low-side or a low speed tip-over on a tight turn? And how many kilometers had you already ridden on this bike before this happened? Could there have been something faulty/damaged in the steering column/suspension that caused this?

There was a similar incident involving a Maruti dealer very recently. The 15 month old Alto was test driven by the dealers valuer, when the owner got his allotment for the new swift, met with an accident with a tipper lorry and there was damage to the front end. The owner refused repairing through insurance and insisted for a new car which was agreed to by the dealer after a long drawn negotiations. The owner paid for the road tax and the insurance for the new Alto.

Hi ebonho.It was a low speed tip over on a right turn.I had ridden the bike for 3,000kms.There is no issue with the steering column/suspension is just that the bike is front heavy.

All the very best Mel. I wish that your traumatic experience is turned into a victorious one. I was skeptical about Garware's After Point of Sale, hence skipped it, else would have bought a GT650n. Their service in the past when the Comet was around was debatable.

Anyways, please do continue to keep us posted on your case. Once again all the very best!

Had the first hearing of my case today at Comsumer Court.
Ronit Motors(Mumbai) stated that the bike was purchased from them and also narrated the accident.Ronit Motors wanted to fight the case on behalf of RC Motors(Ahmadabad) but was not allowed.
The Judge asked that the owner of RC motors be present for the next hearing on 14th Feb, as he wasn't present today.

As expected the first hearing is of no consequence. Why would the Mumbai Dealer stand in on behalf of RC motors? Ahmadabad

Could be a delay tactic?

I have added the Mumbai dealer as the opposite party to the case,so that I can fight the case against RC Motors here in Mumbai itself.If Ronit Motors wants to represent the Ahmadabad dealer, he will require to have a letter of authorisation to do so.
Judge said that we should do a settlement,to which Ronit Motors stated that RC Motors has lost a mechanic due to accident. The Judge replied, "Is Melroy responsible for the accident that has happened?"

This sounds like a 'happy ending' because the owner got a new car at the cost of only the road tax and insurance. If the dealer had 'business operations' insurance, he/she would have been able to claim the difference between the value of the two cars as well. The owner would have been able to transfer the no-claim bonus from the old vehicle to the new vehicle too. I wonder if the owner actually bought the Swift - that would have made the deal favorable for the dealer too.

Had the second hearing of my case today at Consumer Court.
The Judge has asked both the parties including me to file a written affidavit and has scheduled the next hearing date on 21st March.

Melroy,
Have you got the bike repaired and back with you are is it still lying at the police station?
The hearing process seems to be slow - why do they want an affidavit?
Wish the process was a little quick, every time they give a full 1 month gap in hearing.
