Whether we purchase an entry-level computer bike for a high-power sports bike warranty is something we always compare. Many manufacturers provide warranties for a lower period, yet their products are reliable.
The bike service and maintenance costs increase as we move from low-performance commuter bikes to high-performance sports bikes. Every manufacturer tries to gain more reliability of their product. A manufacturer warranty is one way to increase reliability. So you should move on and have a look at:
