5-year warranty for Honda motorcycles
Extended warranty and support for motorcycles and scooters, parts and labour included
No extra costs or mileage limit
When you buy a new motorcycle or scooter, the two-wheeler usually comes with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty, sometimes with an additional one or two years in the case of promotional campaigns that allow you to benefit from an extended warranty for 1 euro.However, some brands have pushed it up to 5 years, like Indian in 2014 or Kymco at the beginning of the year on its scooters of 125 cc and more.
Honda had already extended the legal two-year manufacturer’s warranty on its VFR 1200 in 2010 to three years and extended the warranty on its GoldWing roadster last summer during a commercial operation.The Japanese manufacturer is now going one step further and is extending the coverage of its entire range of road motorcycles to 5 years on a permanent basis!
Thus, all new motorbikes and road scooters purchased since 1 May 2020 are now covered by the two-year manufacturer’s warranty plus a three-year warranty from Honda France. Nevertheless, some second-hand motorbikes are also covered by this warranty, because yes, it is a French initiative and specificity, no other country offers this warranty extension automatically with parts and labour included, at no extra cost and without mileage limits.
In addition, the warranty comes with free 24/7 support for the same period.
These are applicable in France (metropolitan France and overseas departments), as well as in Andorra and Monaco. The guarantee is also transferable in case of change of ownership.
The winged manufacturer was already known for the reliability of its models, and a five-year warranty offers an extra measure of confidence in the brand and its models, over and above the increasingly spaced overhauls and recalls that are sometimes carried out.
Fabrice Recoque, director of the Honda France motorcycle division :
This 5-year warranty for our entire line-up is a major step in the special relationship Honda maintains with its customers. Honda’s reputation has always been built on the technical nature of our models, their performance and their rigorous design and manufacturing standards. These are qualities we are very proud of and that everyone can see and feel when using their motorcycle or scooter on a daily basis.
Attention, however, this warranty applies to all road motorcycles and scooters…but not to non-registrable models (cross, enduro, competition motorcycles and therefore CR, XR, QR, CRF models).And of course, this five-year warranty works in the same way as the original manufacturer’s warranty, i.e. with the obligation to carry out overhauls in the Honda dealer network.
