Common Motorcycle Insurance Questions
What is motorcycle insurance?
A motorcycle is a motorized vehicle that is in danger of encountering the same accident and operational hazards as any other vehicle. Yet, it is very different from a standard car or truck. Motorcycles have two wheels and require unique skills to operate. They also don’t give riders the same level of protection as a standard car.
Due to this, bikers need customized insurance coverage that can’t be found within a standard auto insurance plan. Motorcycle Insurance allows for owners to receive necessary protection to keep themselves and their vehicle protected in case of sudden loss.
Why do you need motorcycle insurance?
Under the standard motorcycle insurance policy, you will receive the assurance of financial assistance if you ever experience an unexpected, unpreventable loss involving your bike. This coverage will assist in paying for accident damage, settlements and other obstacles that may come your way. Whether you are on the road or parked on your driveway, this coverage will save you money and alleviate potential personal losses.
What does motorcycle insurance cover?
Motorcycle insurance includes a large array of benefits, which offer you protection against any obstacle you may encounter:
Comprehensive coverage: This provides compensation if the motorcycle is damaged or lost due to fire, theft, vandalism, hail or wind.
Collision coverage: This provides compensation if the motorcycle is damaged or lost due to a collision with another vehicle or object.
Liability insurance: This covers bodily injury and property damage the insured biker may cause to others (IE other drivers) when they are at fault for an accident when operating the vehicle.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP): This insurance helps with medical expenses for the driver and their passengers in case of an accident, no matter who is at fault.
Guest passenger liability insurance: This coverage steps in if a guest driver causes an accident while operating the motorcycle with the owner’s permission.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance: This insurance steps in if the insured vehicle is involved in an accident with a driver not carrying insurance.
