Honda CB Twister Insurance
Honda Twister Insurance
The Honda CB Twister was launched more than a decade ago in 2010 and got discontinued in 2015. In the five years of its running, it raked massive sales and was a popular buy among riders. The CB Twister is quite an old version, and the brand has released many new models ever since, including the Honda CB Twister 250 in 2018. But because it is from the line-up of Honda bikes, which is a reputed and trusted brand in India, it is a classic. It is no longer for sale in Honda dealerships or on the brand’s official website, but you can source it from a second-hand shop or collector of classic bikes. The Honda CB Twister offers a lot of simplicity to the rider. Its design and finish give it a sporty, playful, bold, and masculine appearance. It has a decent 110cc engine that reaches a speed of 89kmph and gives a mileage of 70kmpl. But irrespective of the well-rounded performance of the bike, every bike needs a two wheeler insurance policy. An insurance policy for bikes is a contract between an insurance provider and a bike owner to protect the owner-rider, their bike, and third parties from damage, loss, and injuries of any kind arising from the owner-driver's bike. Insurance policy for bikes, at least third-party bike insurance, is a legal mandate in India, per the Motor Vehicle Laws. But it is wise to get comprehensive Honda Twister insurance for your Honda CB Twister as it provides more all-rounder protection. Tata AIG offers comprehensive, own-damage, and third-party 2-wheeler insurance online or offline.
