The partnership will provide extra peace of mind for MODENAS customers when making their purchase decisions, knowing the vehicle is protected with a warranty. We are very much looking forward to developing our partnership with MODENAS and to supporting their customers. In addition, we’re confident that our partnership will help stimulate the quality of MODENAS motorcycles in the coming years.”

“If you want a more targeted protection than what MODENAS is currently offering, you may want to consider the EW programme where it offers multiple levels of coverage that has been tailored to your motorcyle’s needs. The EW programme protects both your motorcycle and wallet from costly repairs due to mechanical and electrical breakdown. In addition, your motorcycles are rest assured of the usage of genuine MODENAS parts”, said Roslan Roskan Chief Executive Officer of MODENAS.
With the rising demand for frequent maintenance and repair of motorcycles that can cost as much as one-fifth of the original purchase price, hence, to avoid unexpected financial costs, the Company is providing value-added options for our customers such as this EW programme. Over and above this, the motorcycle industry’s growth is also aided by the transferability of extended warranties offered by manufacturers, which ensures that the product is covered even after it is passed to new owners, continued Roslan.
Allianz Partners South East Asia CEO, Steve Watkins, added:” We are excited to be working with an innovative player such as MODENAS. Allianz Partners has been a strategic partner for the Automotive Industry for many years, and we embrace the opportunity to work primarily with a national manufacturer in the motorcycle industry that is helping to shape the industry’s future. We look forward to working closely together in Malaysia and any opportunities for a future programme”.
