Hero Duet is a light and nimble family scooter. Scooters are one of the most convenient modes of transport, especially in cities. Two-wheeler insurance is necessary to ride your scooter on Indian roads. Bike insurance not only provides financial backup but also makes sure that the owner complies with the legal requirements. Read on to more about Hero Duet bike insurance.
Two-wheeler insurance is a must in India to comply with the legal requirements. Moreover, a bike insurance policy also provides financial backup in case of damage to your Hero Duet. Below are the benefits of buying two-wheeler insurance for your Hero Duet scooter:
A Third-Party Bike Insurance Policy provides the mandatory third-party liability (TPL) cover. The TPL cover provides coverage against loss/damage to third-party property/vehicle or life. For instance, if your Hero Duet is involved in an accident and damages another person’s vehicle/property or injures a third-party, such losses are covered by the TPL cover.
A Comprehensive Bike Insurance Policy covers damages to your Hero Duet. The insurance plan comes with an Own Damage (OD) cover, which covers vehicle damages caused due to fire, accident or man-made/natural disasters. The insurance plan provides a financial backup if your scooter is damaged due to an untoward incident.
The Comprehensive Two-wheeler Insurance Plan also covers theft or total loss of the insured vehicle. If your Hero Duet is stolen or suffers extensive damage in an accident, then the insurer will pay you the IDV (Insured Declared Value) of the scooter.
A Personal Accident cover is mandatory as per law, no matter what type of bike insurance you buy. The Personal Accident or PA cover provides coverage if the rider/owner suffers a disability or accidental death when riding the insured scooter. The PA cover needs to be bought separately along with the insurance policy.
If you need extensive coverage for your Hero Duet, you can opt for add-ons when buying/renewing the Comprehensive Bike Insurance Policy. You can opt for individual add-ons to enhance the coverage benefits. You can choose add-ons as per your need or the type of vehicle you own.

Also, the insurance plan covers theft or total loss of the insured two-wheeler.
