WARRANTY AND REPLACEMENT POLICY

All Himiway bikes are covered under our 2-year, all-inclusive manufacturer's warranty for the owner against all manufacturing defects. (All free accessories are not covered by warranty service.)

WARRANTY PERIOD AND TARGET AUDIENCE TERMS

As for warranty transfer, the ebike transferee can only benefit from the warranty when both of these conditions are met:

  • The 2-year package hasn't expired since the initial owner has received it;
  • The new owner has the initial purchaser’s name and the original order number.
