What is Motorcycle Insurance?
Motorcycle insurance is similar to auto insurance. There are some coverages that are required by the state and others that may be optional. Liability coverages are usually required by the state and generally provide coverage for damages or injuries you may cause to others in an accident.
There are other coverages you can add to cover damages to your motorcycle, accessories you have added, and even coverage to help provide towing and roadside assistance. You can choose optional limits and coverages to personalize your policy to meet your needs.
What are the types of Motorcycle Insurance?
Motorcycle insurance coverage benefits you, your bike, and others on the road. Types of Motorcycle Insurance policy include:
Liability insurance covers bodily injury and property damage that you may cause to other people involved in an accident. It doesn’t cover injury to you or damage to your motorcycle.
Motorcycle collision insurance covers damage to your motorcycle if you are involved in a collision with another vehicle. Your insurance company pays for damages (usually the book value of your bike before the loss occurred), minus your deductible.
Comprehensive coverage pays for damages caused by an event other than a collision, such as fire, theft or vandalism. Like collision coverage, your insurance company will pay for damages, minus your deductible, and will cover only the book value of the motorcycle.
Coverage for customized motorcycle parts. Many comprehensive and collision policies will only cover the factory standard parts on your motorcycle, or they will limit the coverage.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage pays for damages to you and/or your property caused by another driver who either doesn’t have insurance (uninsured) or doesn’t have adequate insurance (underinsured). UM/UIM policies typically pay for medical treatment, lost wages and, in some cases, property damage.
