“Congrats on the move, and kudos to you for thinking ahead! I’m happy to say that in most cases, motorcycle insurance is cheaper
than car insurance
. Since motorcycles typically cost less than cars, they are less expensive to repair.
However, you’re right that motorcycles carry more risk. Motorcyclists are more likely to get into accidents and sustain injuries. Because motorcyclists are not protected by a vehicle, they also die more frequently during an accident. Based on these statistics, and based on how likely you are to submit claims, your motorcycle insurance premium might be higher than you expect.
Apart from the added risk of riding a motorcycle, regular factors that influence insurance will still apply. Insurance companies will look at:
- Your age
- The type of motorcycle you drive
- Where you live
- Your driving record
- Your credit history
Since every company rates policies differently, you’re likely see a wide variety of rates, which is why it’s important to shop around.
