The joint “YOU Yamaha Motor Insurance powered by ERGO” label gives Yamaha customers purchasing a motorcycle or scooter access to the highly effective insurance cover provided by ERGO Versicherung AG’s “Smart” and “Best” product variants. “Smart”, the basic product, already provides great insurance protection at low premiums. The “Best” cover variant offers a lower downgrading of the no-claims bonus class than under “Smart” in the event of a claim, as well as exclusive add-ons including “no-claims bonus protection” and “36-month value protection”. In addition to the cover components “breakdown insurance” and “Replacement Vehicle Plus”, “Motorcycle Clothing Plus” is offered for both products, so damage to the authorised rider and pillion passenger’s safety clothing can be insured too. The new partnership also encompasses centralised services such as 24-hour availability, one-to-one advice and a freephone number for customer queries.
