Only the original owner of an E-bike purchased from BICI online or physical storefront is covered by this Limited Warranty. The Warranty Period begins upon your receipt of the E-bike and shall end immediately upon the earlier of the end of the Warranty Period any sale or transfer of the E-bike to another person, and under no circumstances shall the Limited Warranty apply to any subsequent owner or other transferee of the E-bike.
