Did you know that there are a whopping 15.2 crore two wheels on Indian roads? Each day these two wheelers maneuver various traffic hazards & yet 60 to 70% of them are uninsured!!! Startling, isn't it? Even when the number of two wheelers involved in road accidents is considerable higher, there are many reasons for not buying/renewing  insurance. Cumbersome process, lengthy paperwork & most of the times, two wheeler owners skip renewals after buying insurance policy after their first year. What if, a comprehensive two wheeler insurance product that actually saves time & encourages savings exists in the market? Would that not be appreciated widely by consumers & reduce the non- renewability rate?
