Amount of Motorcycle Protection Coverage
How much actual motorcycle insurance do you need? What insurance policy coverage should you request a quote for? What are your options? Well it really depends on several factors including the bike you own and how you intend to use it.
For instance, fast motorcycles known as a “crotch rocket” or a super sport motorcycle have higher premiums. Also, if you prefer to increase the amount of motorcycle liability insurance to cover hospital coverage and medical care then that is factored into the amount you need to pay in order to enjoy your insurance coverage. Any motorcycle with a very high horsepower-to-weight ratio that is meant for speed and high maneuverability also has a higher risk of serious injuries to the driver and to others may be more costly to insure but definitely the coverage is well worth it.
People that enjoy dirt biking for leisure may want to request a quote to increase their motorcycle insurance coverage too as the close-quarters ride and crowded venues can also put you at a higher risk of injury, bike damage, increased risk of injury to a fellow biker or competitor as well as potential damage to their property or equipment. The requirements for motorcycle insurance coverage can vary depending on where you live so we recommend that you call and talk to any of our agent reps to help guide you on designing a motorcycle policy that best protects you.

Importance of Motorcycle Insurance
You need a personal motorcycle insurance policy for the simple fact that you need to protect yourself and others including your bike from the unforeseen. Motorbikes are prone to theft and loss as they are easier to steal than cars. Aside from that, they are also easier to strip down, rebuild and sell once they are stolen. Motorcycles also carry a lot more personal risk to the driver and passenger compared to regular vehicles. Here are several reasons why:
- Motorbikes are by nature small and therefore hard for other motorists to see on the road at night and with bad weather
- The fact that bikes are more maneuverable and faster, makes them all the more hard to see
- Two wheels can mean a second of inattention can lead to disastrous consequences
- Even though there is safety apparel, operators cannot enjoy proven life-saving features like seatbelts and air bags in the event of a collision
- There is a high rate of serious and fatal injuries from motorcycle crashes as the driver has very little protection versus a car that has steel reinforcement and airbag safety
- Recovery of stolen motorbikes are rare as thieves can easily remove each part and apply for a salvage title
Motorcycles are fun and they are indispensable to some people for work, leisure or competition. Why risk yourself by not getting the right coverage from your insurance company. If you intend to use your motorcycle on a big highway, race it either for fun or competition, it is now more than ever very important that you get the right motorcycle insurance coverage. Let North Central Insurance be your guide in getting the best coverage for your motorcycle.
