Why do I need Motorcycle Insurance
A motorcycle insurance policy is a contract between you and an insurance company. You pay a premium, and in exchange, the insurance company promises to pay for specific accident-related financial losses during the term of the policy.
In some states, to drive you must carry:
- Liability coverage to pay for losses you cause others.
- No-fault coverage to pay you and your passengers for medical and related expenses caused by injuries from an a accident, regardless of fault.
- Both coverages Liability and No-fault.
Motorcycle Comprehensive Coverage
Comprehensive is very similar to collision insurance, the main difference being that comprehensive covers damage caused to your vehicle caused by any unknown party or “act of God.” Vandalism, flood, hurricane, theft, windshield damage and fire are all events usually covered by comprehensive motorcycle insurance. Like automobile collision insurance, comprehensive coverage will pay up to the fair market value of your motorcycle (less your insurance deductible.) And although it’s not legally required by any state, you will probably need it if your motorcycle is financed.
Motorcycle Collision Coverage
Collision insurance coverage pays for damage caused to your vehicle in an accident, when you are “at fault”. A standard collision motorcycle insurance policy will pay for any repairs up to the fair market value of your motorcycle. Collision coverage usually also comes with an insurance deductible. It’s the amount of money you pay toward repairs before your collision insurance kicks in. The higher the deductible you’re willing to pay, the less the collision policy will cost.
