A bit off topic I know, but can anyone tell me if the 5 Years is transferable ? I bought a 2014 Chief in 2017 with 48,000 kms and just wondering if they have any obligation.

If you bought it from a dealer they 'should' have transfered that warranty. Only a dealer can do that. If bought from a private party then you have to physically go in and get it handled and do bring sales stuff so they know you are the real owner now ( registration, ect )
Its painless but a mild hassle if the dealer did not do this............assuming you bought this from an Indian store. Otherwise, you must do it and please do it halfway quickly because I think there is a time limit.

Sometimes there are time limits in which to complete a transfer. Typically 30 - 90 days. I have no idea if this is one but I wouldn't drag my feet just in case if you are getting one transferred.
The only reason some people are still alive is because it's against the law to shoot them.
