    Most Yamahas are protected by a factory warranty, but you may want a little extra peace of mind. We Get You.
    No one offers superior engineering, style and performance like Yamaha. That´s why we stand behind our products with the industry´s best warranty coverage and our own extended coverage plan, Yamaha Protection Plus (YPP).

    Select your term:
    12 Months – $400.00
    24 Months – $544.00
    36 Months – $600.00

    YPP gives you the option to extend your factory warranty, depending on your product and requirements (some purchases may not be eligible for YPP). Combined with Yamaha’s unsurpassed reputation for reliability, YPP provides you with the peace of mind and protection you deserve.
    While other plans bog you down in the details, factory-backed YPP gives you bulletproof protection from the unexpected. And it’s as simple to use and understand as your Yamaha factory warranty.
    YPP is there whether your repair is a few dollars or a few thousand.
    Under YPP, Yamaha picks up the entire cost to repair every applicable manufacturing defect.
    YPP takes over automatically – and immediately – when your factory warranty expires.
    Your YPP warranty is transferable, increasing the value of your Yamaha if you decide to sell or trade.
    Since we already know your Yamaha, there’s no need for you to fill out lengthy claim forms. Your YPP information is available at every authorized Yamaha dealer across Canada.
    Purchase years of YPP coverage at a fraction of what a single major repair costs. You can also use the Yamaha Financial Services program to finance this coverage.
    Yamaha is ready to step in to make necessary repairs (excluding those due to normal wear or aging) using genuine Yamaha parts and factory authorized technicians for the full duration of your coverage.



    Yamaha Protection Plus coverage for motorcycles extends the factory warranty that is provided when you purchase a new Yamaha motorcycle. You can extend this warranty by 12, 24, 36 or 48 months, depending on your needs.
