    • Various two-wheeler brands to skip Auto Expo 2020

      Various two-wheeler brands are expected to skip the Auto Expo 2020, which will be held in Delhi. The main reasons for two-wheeler manufacturers to skip the show are the decrease in sales and the reduction in revenue.

      Ather Energy, Motoroyale by Kinetic, Harley-Davidson India, Ducati India, India Kawasaki Motor, Triumph Motorcycles India, BMW Motorrad India, Jawa Motorcycles, Yamaha Motor India, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, Bajaj Auto, Royal Enfield, TVS Motor Company, and Hero MotoCorp are expected to skip the show. The prices of all vehicles were increased because of the compulsory addition of ABS/CBS safety and revision of insurance prices. There was a further increase in prices because manufacturers faced an additional R&D cost because all vehicles had to be updated to BS-VI emission norms. Two-wheeler prices are not expected to reduce as well because the government has not provided any tax relief thus far. According to a statement made by Hero MotoCorp, the manufacturer plans on skipping the Auto Expo as months of planning and massive resources in terms of manpower and financial spends will have to be allocated. However, even though some of the major two-wheeler manufacturers are skipping the Auto Expo, many electric bikes and scooter manufacturers are expected to attend the show. Electric two-wheeler sales have seen a rise because various government policies have boosted electric mobility. The Auto Expo will be held from 7 February 2020 to 12 February 2020.

    • Growth of Rs.100 billion expected in the third-party motor insurance market

      Due to the penetration in the third-party insurance motor market, The Street has been expecting a growth in the general insurance industry. Strict traffic violation penalties have also been a reason why The Street has been so bullish on the market growth.

      The headroom for premium growth in the case of third-party premiums is expected to be at 26% for FY2019. This will be similar to a 5-6% growth in the overall market. The main reason for the profits to be high will be due to an increase in inherent profitability in car and two-wheeler segments. The Street has been bullish in the last few months because of the penetration of third-party insurance. Individuals usually do not renew their insurance after the first year. However, the Supreme Court has made it compulsory for all cars and two-wheelers to come with three and five-year third-party insurance policies. The fines have also increased for uninsured vehicles. The Street is expecting growth because of these two reasons. The potential growth via the increased compliance levels is expected to be Rs.100 billion. Market participants also suggest the overall compliance is low for cars and two-wheelers when compared to commercial vehicles. Bajaj Allianz and ICICI Lombard have a 60% and 82% share in the two-wheeler and car segment.

    • How to file a two-wheeler insurance claim?

      When you purchase a two-wheeler for yourself then it becomes mandatory for you to purchase a two-wheeler insurance plan. In case something happens to your vehicle, you can get in touch with the insurance company who will help you compensate for the damage incurred by your vehicle. Hence, it is important to know the process of applying for a two-wheeler insurance claim.

      We will have a look at the steps you will have to follow in order to successfully file for a two-wheeler insurance claim:

      In case of an accident, collect the details of the vehicle and the driver who was involved in the accident. Do take pictures of the accident scene from every angle as it will only make it easy for the insurer to decide the type of claim you will need to file.

      The next step will be to visit the nearest police station and file an FIR. Keep a copy of the FIR. You will have to obtain a No-Trace certificate if your vehicle is stolen.

      Once the initial formalities have been completed, you will have to head to the authorized service center for your vehicle. Share the details of your policy who in turn will inform the insurance company.

      Once the insurance company has been informed regarding the accident, an inspector or surveyor will be sent who will inspect the two-wheeler. He/she will also receive the estimates for the repair from the service center.

    • Ather 340 e-scooter discontinued

      Ather Energy, the Bengaluru-based company had halted the production of the Ather 340 e-scooter previously. The company had stated that the production was temporarily stopped owing to low demand of the scooter. As the Ather 450 was doing well, they wanted to redirect the production line to manufacture the 450s only.

      The company has, however, recently announced that they have stopped the production of the 340. Although the 340 was a more affordable option, it did not perform well in the market and that has led the company to pull the plug out on the 340 completely. The company has also hinted at focussing more on streamlining and scaling up their production. The company has 2 more scooters in its pipeline at present which are set to be revealed in 2021. One of these two scooters will be an affordable option and is expected to be priced close to a 125 cc scooter.

    • Gujarat extends the deadline for the implementation of fines for helmet, PUC

      Gujarat has extended the implementation of new penalties related to helmet and pollution-under-control (PUC) certificates offences. The new rules will come into effect from October 15 this year.

      As of now the penalty imposed for traffic related offense such as riding a two-wheeler without helmet, or not carrying the PUC certificate will be Rs.100 till October 15.
