Extended Warranty Anybody ?

Just received in the mail a notice stating that my Kawasaki warranty will expire in September of this year. Thus, they would like to know if I wanted to purchase their " Kawasaki Protection Plus " extended warranty plan.


Personally, I have never purchased an extended warranty plan for any thing that I have ever purchased. As I always felt that if you take care of something, very few problems will arise.


I feel that I should / would be having no problems with my Ninja 300 as I do baby my toys and perform the proper maintenance.


Wondering how many out there feel the same as I do
Their extended warranty costs per year:
1 YEAR .................. $348.15
2 YEARS ................ $406.18
3 YEARS ................ $510.62
4 YEARS ................ $626.67


I would rather put that money yearly into a savings account and if no problems arise, then look what I have saved.
If a problem did arise, then I would have the money saved to apply towards the repair.
Or, invest the money in a good stock or mutual fund.
Orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr .............. take the money to a casino ............ have fun ......... and perhaps win enough to buy a new bike.


P.S. My Yamaha V-Star is now 10 years old, with no maintenance issues. And I do not see why I would or should have any issues with my Ninja.


I owned for 18 years a Honda Gold Wing. Had no maintenance issues and the day I sold it, buyer stated that it looks "new".

That's for people that don't have a problem paying for "peace of mind".

If the Ninja has been fine up to this point I'd say you are good.

For a guy that keeps up with maintenance that's just throwing money away IMO.

It's typical insurance; i.e. a money maker for THEM.

I extended mine, but I did it through my dealership and it was no where near that expensive. I paid $420 for 4 years. That seemed reasonable and I did have a few warranty things that happened here and there during that time that pretty much equaled it out.

I bought it more out of the 'holy shit' experience we had when the crankshaft on the Multistrada sheered off. Luckily that happened under warranty and Ducati picked up the entire tab because you don't even want to know what the total was on that bill.

OY! Glad that was covered!

If I bought a Ducati I'd definitely consider the extended warranty. Kawasaki with a proven track record probably not.

My neighbor has (3) KTM's and beats the hell out of them. Needless to say, they have given him no problems.


He also has a Ducati, which he babies. BUT ! Has had nothing but problems with it. Not only problems with the bike but problems with the dealership and the manufacturer.


I am quite sure that it is the last Ducati that he will ever own.

Your experience definitely depends on your dealership. Our Ducati dealership has 3 employees - a husband, his wife, and one technician. We've been friends with them for well over a decade. They treat everyone like family. That being said, we've never had any bad experience dealing with Ducati over our bikes.
