Thanks guys. Not panning for daily use but for occasional commute to office and to drop my 3 year old daughter to school. She loves riding in scooter.

Hi friends, my Aprilia SR150 is 2 years old now and out of factory warranty. However, I had opted for an extended warranty a year back.

My service adviser says that I'll have to continue servicing in 3-4 months interval to maintain the extended warranty. The trouble is, my running is really low (less than 8k kms in two years) and hence quarterly service seems unnecessary as off lately my running is less than 500kms per quarter. Any clue on the requirement to continue servicing to avail the benefit of extended warranty?

PS: I still haven't gotten my extended warranty card from SVC for the payment which was done over a year ago. Anyone here who has the extended warranty car can you please check the T&C for extended warranty

For the warranty to be valid, you will have to keep your end of the terms i.e. periodic maintenance at authorized service center. Any miss and you lose your right to claim for warranty.
This is the ony down side of extended warranty I suppose, and felt more in case of a scooter which needs to be serviced anywhere between 80-100 days.

A Q though: Why the need to take extended warranty for an automatic scooter? Too less parts that can fail, as compared to a car, and are quite reasonable too, comparitively.

That's just it. I don't think there is anymore a service schedule in owners manual after all 9 services in 2 years. If there was, I'd be following it for sure to maintain the warranty. Will have a look at owners manual once again though.

Well Aprilia is goog but isn't as reliable as other japanese gearless scooters. I've been lucky to get quite some parts, such as alloy wheel, cooling fan and fork components replaced under warranty already in first two years. It was a no brainer to buy the extended warranty for 2 years merely at a cost of less than 700 bucks just to be on safe side
