Why don't you drop them a email and clarify your inquiries?

And just for your information, Bank of India's Superbike Loan has currently the lowest interest rates in India.

Cheers...
Yes - i got my Z900 loan at 8.9% for 5 years with BOI. No Prepayment penalty. Best deal in the market right now.

I have a small query, Do insurance companies insure legally imported superbikes? Lets say, Yamaha R6?

If they do, Where does these bikes get repaired? Does Yamaha A.S.S. give repair estimate to insurance guys?

Firstly , I dont think Yamaha A.S.S will entertain you. If they do they will give a repair estimate to the surveyor. You would also need to provide original repair invoice and payment receipts. Rest Assure, it will be a very long and expensive process to have it repaired by the A.S.S if they decide to indulge.
Best bet, order parts yourself and find an independent garage. You could also try approaching Yamaha with the parts and they could charge you for labor and not the parts. Again, they would charge hefty.

Another insurance related query, don't know where to ask so posting here,

I came across a few bikes which were still on first owners name despite changing hands multiple times, that raised curiosity, how do these new owners who don't go for ownership transfer on RC, claim insurance in case things go wrong? Insurance company will simply reject the claim right? do they risk losing their bike just to save some moolah in transferring ownership?

Insurance companies only care about matching name on insurance policy & RC. In the case something goes wrong - the claim will be raised in the system by the first owner - ofcourse he/she has to agree for it.

The Kawasaki dealership in Hyderabad is driving me nuts. I wanted to buy the Z900 in Grey (the red wheels were so good) for which I had gone to the showroom in March. They said that it was out of stock and that they don't know when the next batch is being delivered, fair enough. I made a few calls to Kawasaki support and I get to know that the next batch of Grey colour Z900s are being imported in June last week. I call the dealership back and tell them to contact me as soon as they get their hands on one.


Fast forward to the last week of June, and I go back to the dealership. They tell me that it is still not available but that it will be available by end of July. I tell them that I would like to definitely buy one. Paid the booking amount of Rs 1L on the 13th of this month, specifically for the Grey colour once they confirmed. No contact from either the agent or the Kawasaki office since then till yesterday. Even to get the receipt of the bopking amount I had to run behind them for days. Today, I called the head agent and he told me that it will not be available for another 2 months at least. He then tells me that he is willing to offer me a Rs 15k discount on the other colours.



It sucks doubly since I could have gotten Rs 42k worth of accessories if I had just bought the other colour in March when there was an offer running. I am not sure what to do now. Keep waiting, buy the different colour or just say screw Kawasaki with their disgusting practices and say goodbye to the booking amount.



Rant Over. Thank you.

Take your money back and go to another company or dealership who appreciates your business. High time people understood value of incoming business and respected its worth.

You should just ask for a complete refund of the booking amount and look elsewhere. No point in giving business to such lousy dealers.

Can you guys share good sources to import bike parts online? for third party consumables like EBC brake pads, vortex, DID chain sprocket etc. and also for OEM components like RR units, ignition coils, clutch plates etc?

I have only used aliexpress so far that too for non-mechanical parts only.

Motousher is official India distributor for EBC and DID with very competitive pricing.

For other parts - you can look at partzilla and revzilla - but do keep in mind that with the Import duties now - it might be better to just buy locally
