Getting Insurance for your Electric Motorcycle
Electric motorcycles are a great way to get around, but you need to make sure you have the right insurance in place before you hit the road. There are lots of start-up companies offering new electric motorbikes outside of the main manufacturers who have been quite slow (compared to the car market) in developing their own offerings.
As the UK and Europe move closer to the cut of dates for selling traditional ICE machines in the 2030s, more and more electric motorbikes are going to enter the market in the next few years and insurers need to be ready.
Here are some tips on how to get the best insurance for your electric motorcycle:
Go Direct – It’s worth going direct to motorcycle insurance brokers rather than price comparison websites. Price comparison sites may not cater for the bike you own. Motorcycle insurers such as MCE Insurance have the most up to date vehicle lists on their system to ensure they can get you a quote.
Get the right Cover – Make sure you understand the coverage you're getting and what it covers. Things like batteries are very important on electric bikes, make sure the policy you buy has this covered.
Data Driven offers – Electric bikes will provide more data to insurers, much like a black box. New bikes will have a lot more tech and data on board which some insurers may use to offer you better deals if you share it with them.
Following these tips will help you get the best insurance coverage for your electric motorcycle so you can enjoy the ride without worry.
