Explaining Insurance to the Motorcycle Industry and Customer

If you ride or sell a motorcycle, you will need to be informed about shielding insurance.

Manufacturers and dealers as well as riders must familiarize themselves with the associated risks and purchase tailored coverage that protects them from variables. This overview will simplify the basics of different insurance classes.

Motorcycle insurance for owner and rider

Typically, most standard auto and personal liability plans do not include motorcycle insurance. It is for this reason that insurance coverage is clearly for motorcycles, motor scooters, motor bikes and others like them, which is required for those who own and ride them. Coverage avoids liability of the owner or operator if physical injury or property damage occurs to a third party. In most cases, insurance carriers that provide motorcycle insurance include physical damage coverage for fire, theft, comprehensive and collision policies. Associated coats are usually established through measurement of cubic centimeters of engine displacement.

Companies that offer motorcycle insurance recommend coverage of uninsured motorists as supplemental coverage of liability policy. They are those that offer medical payment as well as passenger liability coverage.

Motorcycle and motor-bike custom manufacturing and construction insurance

Due to the increasing popularity of customizing motorcycles, many businesses deal with basic details, frame modifications as well as engine differences. This, of course, lends various forms of liability risk to custom bike designers, manufacturers, fabricators and service or motorcycle fix-it shops.

Related policies include the following coverage:

• general liability insurance

• Product and full operational coverage

• Garage-Keepers Legal Liability Insurance

• Commercial personal property insurance – theft of which is a part of coverage

Motorcycle and motor-bike dealer insurance

This type of insurance is typically provided on a modified automobile dealers-liability form – a form that is specifically adapted to the needs of a motorcycle dealer.

There are two different covers:

1. A policy that includes premises liability for sales operations in relation to servicing or repairing motorcycles of customers.

2. A policy that includes coverage protection for motorcycles of customers that they are stored in the dealers’ repair shop. Such a plan is similar to a garage keeper’s legal liability insurance policy.

The dealers’ supplemental physical damage insurance policy protects stored motorcycles that are waiting to be sold and includes coverage for risks, such as fire, theft, collision, vandalism, riot, and other specified risk exposures.
