There are mainly two types of two-wheeler insurance plans for BMW R nineT bikes: Third-Party Bike Insurance Plan and Comprehensive Bike Insurance Plan. Below are the coverage and benefit details of both the insurance bike insurance plans:
A Third-Party 2-wheeler Insurance Plan is compulsory for your bike to comply with The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. The insurance plan covers loss/damage to third-party property or life. However, the Third-Party Policy is a basic insurance plan for your bike as it does not provide coverage against damage to your motorcycle. The insurance plan comes only with a Third-Party Liability (TPL) cover and misses out on Own Damage cover.
A Comprehensive 2-wheeler Insurance Plan provides better coverage for your bike as it offers Third-Party and Own Damage cover. The insurance plan covers damages to your BMW R nineT bike caused due to an accident, fire, or man-made/natural disasters. Comprehensive Plan also covers unfortunate incidents such as theft or total loss of your bike. Moreover, you can enhance the coverage benefits by opting for add-ons. The Comprehensive Policy is an ideal insurance plan for your high-end bike.

Any add-ons which are not purchased.

Roadside Assistance Cover
Engine Protection Cover
Zero Depreciation Cover
Outstation Emergency Cover
Key Protect Cover
Personal Belongings - Damage/Theft
You can consider purchasing the below add-ons for extensive coverage for your BMW R nineT bike:
The BMW R nineT comes with a high-capacity twin-cylinder engine. Any damages to the engine can lead to a hefty repair bill. Generally, a bike insurance plan does not cover damages to the engine. But if you opt for the Engine Protect add-on, ACKO covers the cost incurred due to engine damages. Engine damages due to an accident or natural/man-made disasters are covered by the Engine Protect add-on.
A motorcycle’s parts/components suffer wear and tear over time. During claim settlements, you receive the depreciated value of the bike. However, with the Zero Depreciation add-on, ACKO pays you the original value of the bike without considering the depreciation value. Zero Depreciation cover is one of the crucial add-ons for a high-end motorcycle, such as the BMW R nineT.
The Outstation Emergency add-on comes into the picture when you are outside a 100 km radius of your residence. ACKO provides assistance if your bike suffers a breakdown or is involved in an accident. The add-on is useful if you go on long rides on your BMW R nineT bike.
Generally, a bike insurance plan does not cover the cost of consumable items such as engine/gearbox oil, nut and bolts, etc. But if you opt for the consumables cover add-on, ACKO covers the cost of consumable items whenever your bike is repaired. The cost of BMW consumable items is on the higher side, so it makes sense to opt for a Consumables add-on for your BMW R nineT bike.
