Piaggio India has extended free service period and warranty on Aprilia and Vespa products by 30 days.
In light of the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, Piaggio India has extended free service period and warranty on its products from Aprilia and Vespa brands in India. Customers will be able to avail these benefits within 30 days after the lockdown lifts. At the moment, the current lockdown is expected to lift on May 4, 2020. However, it may get extended further due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the country. If that happens, the warranty and free service periods should extend as well.
In addition to this, Piaggio India says that the group has taken multiple social measures to help the local community tackle the Coronavirus situation. The company claims that it’s providing food and shelter to 1,000 migrant workers near its manufacturing plant in Baramati. Piaggio has also joined hands with the local government hospital in order to make an isolation ward for COVID-19 patients. Additionally, the company is arranging personal protective equipment (PPE) for the medical staff, while it has also installed sanitisation units for the healthcare professionals at Sassoon Government Hospital in Pune.
Commenting on their initiative, Mr Diego Graffi, Managing Director and CEO, Piaggio India said, 'We applaud the government’s effort and determination to contain and control the spread of the virus. In the present times of uncertainty, we stand committed to our Vespa and Aprilia customers with our channel partners and assure them of our unwavering support. We want to ensure that our customers face no hurdles and are able to avail services seamlessly. We are determined to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 and closely monitoring the situation by working with local authorities.”
