SouthwestRe Introduces Motorcycle Appearance Protection

Oct 21, 2016

Albuquerque, NM (October 21, 2016) – SouthwestRe announced today that it has added Motorcycle Appearance Protection by PowerRev to its suite of F&I products. Motorcycle Appearance Protection is designed to keep motorcycles looking great long after they have left the showroom by guarding against conditions that can severely damage a motorcycle’s paint, chromed metal, and upholstery.

"There are four different coverage levels that dealers can offer their customers," said Jamie Jerabek, Vice President of Underwriting and Product Development for SouthwestRe. “Bronze and Silver protect against the most common causes of appearance failure, such as fading caused by the sun and other environmental factors, as well as stains to leather, vinyl, and fabric upholstery caused by food or drink.”

“As their names suggest, Gold and Platinum offer our highest levels of appearance protection,” Jerabek said. “This includes damage caused by insects, road salt, lipstick, ink, and more. Unlike Bronze and Silver, Gold and Platinum also provide coverage for rips and tears, burns, cracks, and punctures. All told, Gold protects against 33 causes of failure, while Platinum protects against 38 different causes.”

"It is very important to protect a motorcycle’s appearance before problems begin,” Jerabek said. “This product does exactly that. With the application of an approved appearance product, Motorcycle Appearance Protection by PowerRev will help keep a customer’s cruiser or sports bike looking great for years to come."
