Honda Rider Assist Offers Riders Peace Of Mind

12 February 2009 - Motorcyclists face a unique set of challenges if and when they experience a breakdown or other misfortune.

Luckily there is a service that exists to help riders 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Honda Australia has extended their partnership agreement with International SOS to continue to provide emergency relief on the road through the Honda Riders Assist program – an exceptional service made possible through the largest club of its kind in the country, the Honda Riders Club of Australia (HRCA).

Riders Assist not only offers a bevy of vital services, but also advice and help from specialists who are familiar with the technical aspects of Honda’s range of motorcycles as well as the unusual circumstances that riders occasionally find themselves in.

Membership holders on roads anywhere across Australia can ride secure in the knowledge that issues such as flat tyres, running out of fuel, lost keys, a flat battery or any other inconvenience can be tended to quickly and efficiently.

Services are offered through Gold or Platinum programs and, depending on the level of cover, include breakdown assistance, roadside repairs, transport, accommodation/ car rental, accident coordination, emergency fuel, key replacement, emergency contact, medical/legal advice and much more.

Costing just $69 for Gold cover and $119 for Platinum, Honda Rider Assist is exclusive to Honda owners and is one of the most comprehensive covers available on the market today.

“The advisors at Rider Assist work closely with our in-house technicians at Honda to ensure they are up-to-date on any potential issues and are also well-versed in our particular models,” said HRCA Manager Rhys Griffiths.

“This means we can offer a very personalised and effective service which is why, we believe, it continues to be so popular with owners from across our product range.”
