BMW already offers an extensive 5-year warranty on all its cars and motorcycles. Now, that warranty will be extended to its branded helmets as well. BMW Motorrad will be giving buyers an extended 5-year warranty on all BMW Motorrad helmets. The warranty will retroactively take effect from January 1, 2020.
All helmets in the BMW Motorrad product range, purchased from January 1, 2020 onward are covered by a contractual warranty period of five years from now on. Purchases made before this date are still limited to a warranty period of 24 months. The warranty applies to all helmets purchased from any participating BMW Motorrad dealer.
The warranty covers material and manufacturing defects of the product. Installed BMW Motorrad communication systems, in turn, are excluded from the BMW Motorrad warranty extension for helmets. This means that the warranty expressly does not apply if a defect or damage is caused by improper handling, an accident, or the improper installation of the system and accessories - even by third parties. Scratches on the visor, sun shield, helmet shell, or plastic parts are also not covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
