ACKO Two-wheeler Insurance
Bike Insurance in India
Low-cost bike insurance plans with exciting discounts - Buy online on ACKO.
Two-wheeler insurance, commonly called bike insurance, protects your two wheeler from financial losses against accidental damages or theft.
Good bike insurance covers losses due to accidents, natural disaster, fire, theft, or riot. It also protects against injuries/damages caused to someone else or their property.
On ACKO, you can buy insurance for your two wheeler completely online in just a few minutes. No inspection or paperwork needed - even if your previous insurance has expired.
Our bike insurance plans cover different types of two wheelers such as motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, and more.
Third party Bike Insurance is mandatory in India. It protects you against financial liability if you accidentally damage someone else's vehicle or property or injure someone in an accident. However, it doesn't offer financial protection against damages or losses to your bike.
A Comprehensive Bike Insurance covers everything that Third-party insurance covers, and also covers losses or damages to your two-wheeler in case of an accident, theft, fire, natural calamities (floods, earthquakes), riots, or strikes.
It is an additional cover to enhance your bike insurance plan. It is mandatory by law to own a PA Cover in India. While your bike insurance policy covers damages to your bike, the PA Cover provides financial protection in the event of disability/death while riding a two-wheeler.
Add extra layers of protection to your bike insurance with our wide range of add-on covers.
The value of your bike will depreciate due to wear and tear with time. With Zero Depreciation add-on cover, ACKO will pay the cost of replacement of parts without deducting the depreciation.
Helmets are critical to avoid brain injuries while riding a bike. Protect your helmet with this add-on cover, which will cover the repair/replacement cost of helmets in case of an accident, theft, natural disaster, fire, or riots.
A flat tyre in the middle of the road can be troublesome. With this add-on, our technicians will take the responsibility to replace/repair the flat tyre and save you from all the hassle during this breakdown.
Key Protect add-on cover will secure you against the cost of replacing the bike’s key in case it is stolen, lost or damaged. Also, avail payment for the repair or replacement of the lock-set, if required.
In case your bike breaks down or meets with an accident outside 100 kms radius of your place of residence, ACKO will pay the amount as specified in the add-on cover.
Bike Engine add-on cover will pay for the cost of repair or replace parts of the engine due to damages because of floods, not using the bike for a long time, leakage of coolant/lubricating oil and hydrostatic lock.
ACKO will cover the cost of consumable items such as engine oil, nut and bolt, screw, lubricants, grease, distilled water and items of similar nature except fuel consumed during the repair of your bike.

ACKO provides several a wide range of add-ons such as Zero Depreciation, Personal Belongings - Damage/Theft, Roadside Assistance Cover, and many more.
Add-on covers enhance the coverage of the basic Comprehensive two-wheeler insurance policy. However, you need to select the right add-ons which suit your requirement and serve the purpose.
Ask these questions before choosing the right add-on covers:
- Does it serve the purpose and is it beneficial?
- Are you ready to pay the nominal additional premium?
- Does it add value to the basic bike insurance cover?
With various jargons and terminologies, insurance is made complicated. However, it is super-easy if you understand their relevance. Here are a few of the terminologies that you may want to know.
Insured Declared Value (IDV) is the sum insured amount or the current market value of the bike. This is the amount ACKO will pay in case of a total loss due to theft, fire, riots, floods, etc. Hence, it is important to choose the right value so that you get the rightful compensation in case of a total loss. The buyer can choose the IDV while buying or renewing the policy. For two-wheelers, which are more than 5 years old, the insurer and policyholder will mutually agree on the IDV.
IDV is calculated as the selling price of the manufacturer minus the depreciation value. The lower the IDV, the lower the premium and vice versa.
Example: Your bike’s market value is Rs. 75,000. You decide to reduce the IDV to Rs. 65,000 to decrease the premium. In case of theft, the insurer will pay the IDV after deducting depreciation, which is lower than the market value. Hence, you need to be careful while changing the IDV.
With time, the value of the bike depreciates due to wear and tear. While making a claim, the insurance company only pays this depreciated value and not the entire value.
With Zero Depreciation add-on cover, age does not matter since depreciation is not considered and you enjoy a higher claim settlement amount. Also, the insurer will not consider the deprecation of the replaced bike parts. Hence, you can get almost the same value of coverage by the insurer in case you have to replace a part of the bike.
Parts such as screw, nut and bolt, lubricant, engine and gearbox oil, distilled water, A/C gas, oil, and break filter are called Consumable items.
The basic Comprehensive Insurance policy does not cover consumable items while settling claims. The Consumables add-on cover will pay for the specified consumable items to help you save on cost.
Deductible is the part of the repair bill that you need to pay from your pocket. There are two types - Compulsory and Voluntary. Compulsory Deductible for two-wheelers is fixed at Rs. 100 by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI).
In case of Voluntary Deductible, you have the option to increase the percentage of the deductible. In return, the insurer offers a discount on the premium amount resulting in lower premiums. This is suitable when you are not sure of making claims during the policy period.
Example: If your bike was damaged and the total claim amount is Rs. 6,000 and you have opted for a Voluntary Deductible of Rs. 2,000, then you have to pay Rs. 2,000 and the insurer will pay the balance amount of Rs. 4,000.
ACKO rewards riders with a discount for driving safely and not raising a claim during the policy period. The discount is referred to as No Claim Bonus (NCB) and can be used while renewing the policy.
On the first two-wheeler insurance renewal, you will receive a 20% discount and it increases for five consecutive years for driving safely and not raising any claims. This discount can go up to 50%.
Example: if you got a 20% discount on the first renewal of the policy and you do not file a claim the second year, the discount for the second renewal rises to 25%. Similarly, for the third, fourth and fifth consecutive no-claim years, the NCB discount becomes 35%, 45% and 50% respectively.
Here's the list of features and benefits under Third-party and Comprehensive Bike Insurance policy.

- Injuries to someone else while riding a bike
- Death of a third party
