My friend dropped her suzuki marauder 800 (luckily she is fine) but there is damage to the frame and front wheel. Although the damage to the frame can be repaired the bike has been written off by the insurer. She has been told that if she gets the bike repaired that she would have difficulty selling it because it had been written off by the insurance company and that this would be recorded with VIC roads. We have been told that technically the insurer must write it off as there is damage to the frame. Has anyone heard of this or can offer any information?
