So you own a Ducati bike? Hats off just to that!
Planning to renew the insurance of your good old Ducati Diavel bike or looking for the best two-wheeler insurance for your brand new Ducati 1299 Superleggera bike – you’ve landed just the right place.
Let’s dive into the two-wheeler insurance basics for your Ducati bike.
Understanding Ducati Insurance
Must-know Coverage for Your Ducati Bike
You can get following kinds of insurance policies for your Ducati Bike:
|Third-Party Bike Insurance||Comprehensive Bike Insurance|
|Only covers third-party injuries and damages, and not to your own vehicle.||Gives third-party policy + coverage for losses and damages to your own bike|
|Mandatory by Indian Motors Act.||It’s not mandatory to buy coverage for your own bike’s damages, but then we all know the state of Indian roads. And, who doesn’t love their Ducati bike?|
|Multi-year insurance available||Multi-year insurance available|
Why You Should Insure Your Ducati Bike?
Ducati bikes are great on Indian roads, which is why there are so many of them. But with a two-wheeler insurance, you can:
- Be sure that you’re rightfully compensated if your Ducati bike was stolen or damaged beyond repairs.
- Get coverage for a third-party if your bike caused an accident and the third-party was injured or their property damaged.
- Get comprehensive coverage for your own two-wheeler, in case damages were caused to your vehicle.
- Be sure that no traffic policeman heavily fines you for not having an insurance policy for your bike. Strictly, say no to bribery!
Good-to-Have Insurance Add-ons for Ducati Bikes
Zero Depreciation Cover:
Irrespective of the model of Ducati bike you have, depreciation is applicable on all kinds of metal, plastic, and fiber glass parts. In case of repairs / replacement claims, you would have to pay for the depreciation cost. However, with zero depreciation add-on, you can get that covered.
Return to Invoice Cover:
So that if your bike was stolen or completely damaged, the claim settlement amount from the insurance company is not as little as the current market value of your bike. Instead, it is as much as the invoice value of your bike. This is even when in case your bike was two years old, with a 20 percent lower current market value.
A lot of insurance companies offer specific add-on coverage at an addition premium cost. Depending on the model of Ducati bike you have, do enquire with your insurer about these coverage options. Key replacement, roadside assistance, personal accident cover of passengers could be a few such options.
Things a Two Wheeler Insurance Covers For Any Ducati Bike
- Personal accident coverage for owner-driver
- Accident-related damages to your bike
- Damages caused during a natural calamity like flood or storm
- Loss because of fire, explosions
- Compensation for Stolen Bike
Things a Two Wheeler Insurance Does Not Cover For Any Ducati Bike
- Wear and tear caused over the years [including flat tyres]
- Losses caused when the bike was driven without a driving license
- Damages caused when the bike was being driven under the influence of alcohol
- Driving outside the geographical limits
- If the bike is used for anything beyond it’s legal purpose [racing, illegal activities, organized crime]
Questions you might ask about Ducati Insurance
How can I renew my Ducati Insurance online?
Your Ducati Insurance Policy can be renewed online very seamlessly through your insurer’s online portal or your broker’s portal.
- If you have already selected an insurance company you can go to the insurer’s portal and renew it online by filling in the details.
- All you need to fill are your bike details (like Vehicle Registration Number, Engine/Chasis Number), your previous insurance details and your contact details. Once done, you can then renew the policy online by paying via netbanking, wallet or credit/debit card.
- Also, it is not necessary to continue your insurance policy with the same insurance company as the previous year. You can easily purchase insurance policy from a different insurer, as long as you are aware of the benefits and features being offered.
The two wheeler insurance of my Ducati Monster 1200 bike has already expired. Is vehicle inspection mandatory?
No. Inspection is not mandatory even if the insurance for your bike has already expired. It is sometimes done at the discretion of the insurer but only if the insurance has lapsed for more than 6 months or so.
Is an online insurance policy valid for two-wheelers?
Of course it is valid. You get a valid bike insurance policy by renewing the policy online. All you need to do is fill in your previous policy bike details and get a valid insurance policy emailed to your registered email id. A printout of that would suffice.
Single-year or Mutli-year: what’s better in case of Ducati insurance?
Multi-year is always better as you get a better rate and your insurance policy is valid for 2 to 3 years. Thus, there is no renewal headache every year. Also, since you pay upfront, there is a huge discount on the premium.
How do I get no-claim bonus at the time of renewal?
If you have not claimed in the preceding year, then you can avail a No-Claim Bonus at the time of your next renewal. Keep one thing in mind: your bike insurance renewal has to happen before the previous policy expires. At the time of renewal of your Two-Wheeler Insurance Policy, you need to mention your last NCB and whether you have made any claim in the last year or not. You get discount on the own-damage premium as per the NCB grid provided by IRDA.
|All vehicle Type NCB Grid||% of discount on own damage premium|
|No Claim in the last 1 year||20%|
|No Claim in the last 2 consecutive years||25%|
|No Claim in the last 3 consecutive years||35%|
|No Claim in the last 4 consecutive years||45%|
|No Claim in the last 5 consecutive years||50%|
How much more do I need to pay for comprehensive two wheeler insurance?
The premium for a simple third party only insurance is fixed by the IRDAI. A comprehensive insurance policy includes own-damage premium too. The own-damage premium varies slightly from one insurance company to another and is dependent on a lot of factors, including your claims history and the age of your bike. The overall premium for comprehensive insurance is marginally higher, but highly recommended if you are looking for complete coverage for your Ducati bike.

Premium motorcycle manufacturer Ducati said that it has begun pre-booking for the Panigale V2, which is incidentally its first BS6 motorcycle. The Panigale V2 will be the entry-level model in the Panigale family. The company in a tweet said that it is accepting a pre-booked amount of Rs. 1 lakh and deliveries are expected to follow after the launch of the superbike in India. The superbike features a single-sided aluminium swingarm fitted with a monocoque chassis. Compared to the outgoing model, the new Ducat Panigale V2 is sleeker and leaner. The superbike derives power from a 955cc L-Twin engine that is able to produce a maximum power of 155PS and a peak torque of 104Nm. Compared to the old model, the power has increased by 5PS and torque by 2Nm. The bike boasts of cornering ABS, traction control, quick shifter, 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and engine brake control. Among the features, the Ducato Panigale V2 comes with a 4.3 TFT screen and replaces the LCD instrument console seen in the outgoing model. The Ducati Panigale V2 competes with the likes of Kawasaki ZX10R, BMW S1000R, and the Yamaha R1 in the Indian superbike segment.
