Motorcycle insurance can include various types of coverages, and your state’s requirements will determine the minimum coverage you will need.
Types of Motorcycle Insurance Coverage
- Liability insurance which covers property damage or bodily injuries that you cause to others when involved in an accident up to the limits of your policy. Whether your liability insurance includes Guest Passenger Liability (protecting you if your motorcycle passenger is injured) is determined by the insurance company issuing your policy and by the laws of your state.
- Uninsured/Underinsured motorist coverage pays for damage to you and your property up to the limits of your policy when another driver who is at-fault is either not insured or does not have sufficient insurance to cover your losses.
- Collision insurance covers damage to factory-standard parts on your bike incurred during an accident when you collide with another vehicle or object according to the terms of your policy.
- Comprehensive insurance covers damage, up to the limits of your policy, for the factory-standard parts of your motorcycle caused by something other than collision such as vandalism, theft or fire.
Do you Need Additional Insurance Coverage?
If your motorcycle has non-factory-standard elements, like a custom paint job, chrome parts or other added accessories, sidecars, trailers, other equipment, you should consider additional coverage for your motorcycle insurance.
