Modified Motorbike Insurance – The Main Insurance Issues
If you have a modified motorbike and have experienced trouble when trying to insure it, you are probably thinking along the lines of ‘why all the fuss’ - a few changes from the original model and every insurance company either is not interested or increases the premium excessively. If the motorbike has been modified totally and no longer looks (or performs) anything like the original model, you could appreciate that it becomes harder for the insurance company to categorise the bike within it’s standard guidelines. There are issues related to their ability to assess the vehicle’s valuation and the costs of repairs if the motorbike was damaged in an accident. There is also the increased theft risk involved, due to the bike becoming more unique than others.
Some of the main issues that insurance companies have with modified motorbikes are:
- theft risk
- replacement parts
- drivers may be termed high risk
Through our years of developing our modified motorbike insurance policies with our selection of insurance companies, we have been able to create a tailor-made policy to cover these risks securely at a very good premium rate.
