Chennai based motorcycle manufacturer, Royal Enfield, has announced an extension in warranty and free services for its customers. In an email sent to Royal Enfield motorcycle owners, the company advised about extensions and other basic maintenance that can be done at home.
In light of the national lock down, all Royal Enfield dealerships have remained closed, and their Roadside Assistance & Doorstep Services have been affected. Owners have missed out on periodic free services that the company offers.
In order to correct this, the company has said that validity of free services due, and warranties expiring between 22 March and 14 April have been extended by two months. In addition, the company has offered tips to keep one's motorcycle in ‘perfect condition' to ride once the lock down is over.
The company advised that motorcycles should be parked on the center stand, and on a hard surface. If one does not have space to run the motorcycle (like within society premises), RE advises that motorcycles must be moved to and fro for 2.5 meters, while gently applying the front and rear brakes.
he motorcycle should be run on idle for between 5 and 10 minutes as frequently and safely as possible to keep the battery charged. Royal Enfield advises not to twist one's wrist as it may lead to discolouration of the exhaust.
One should disconnect the negative port from the battery to avoid a battery discharge (if parked for over a week), and one must activate clutch, accelerator, and brake cable once a week to avoid rusting. And finally, Royal Enfield advises its customers to clean their motorcycles, and apply chain lube periodically
In Royal Enfield related news, the company recently launched its Bullet 350 BS6 models in India starting at Rs 1.22 lakh, ex-showroom. The motorcycles are available in three variants, all powered by upgraded 346cc air-cooled engines. To know more, click here.
Thoughts About Royal Enfield's Extension For Warranties, Free Services, And Other Advise
While the extension for warranties and free services was expected, we think the cut off day should have been the end of April, you know, considering the possibility that the lock down could extend for another fortnight. And, while we're appreciative of the maintenance advise given to us, we think RE has totally forgotten that the GT 650 models do not have a center stand. Hey RE, what do you recommend we do about this?
