A lot has been written about the price increases which have been experienced in the car insurance market, with premium hikes of over 40% for the average driver over the past 12 months having been quoted. The global recession, hikes in fraudulent claims and an increased number of uninsured motorists have all been bandied around as causes for this.
However, little has been said about the impact this has had on other forms of insurance, like motorbike insurance prices. Motorbike owners have witnessed similar price hikes, but this has not been commented on as much by the media due to the fact that two wheeled vehicles are far less common than the four wheeled alternative.
We therefore take a look at how owners of two wheeled vehicles can combat these prices increases. Whether you are looking for moped insurance, or even quad insurance quotes; the following five tips could help to dramatically reduce your total insurance expenditure.
1. Improve your qualifications
The rider is the factor which has the single biggest impact on insurance premiums. You obviously can not do much about your age or gender, but you can improve your experience levels.
Completing advanced riders courses, which are available through the majority of motorcycle training schools, have the potential to dramatically reduce your insurance premiums as insurance companies will automatically assume that riders with additional qualifications under their belt are statistically less likely to be involved in an accident and make a claim.
2. Think about your vehicle
As you already know, bikes tend to be cheaper to insure than cars. This reflects the fact that bike owners are statistically less likely to be involved in an accident and make a claim than car owners.
The same is true when it comes to divisions within the actual bike insurance market; with high performance bikes, moped and quads tending to be more expensive to insure than their less powerful and more easy to control alternatives. Once again, this reflects the increased statistical likelihood of owners of more powerful bikes claiming on their insurance.
3. Security features
Even if you can’t help but give into temptation, and end up buying a high performance vehicle, there are things that you can do to reduce premiums.
Using security devices like alarms and armoured cables will reduce the chance of your vehicle being stolen. This will obviously be viewed favourably by the insurance companies, who are keen to avoid the huge pay outs which are required when ever a claim is made for a stolen vehicle; hence resulting in cheaper overall premiums.
4. Park securely
Storing your moped or bike over night in a safe location such as a locked garage, and parking it in a secure car park when at work during the day will both be viewed as positive moves by insurance companies due to the fact that it reduces the chance of the vehicle being vandalised or even stolen.
Both of these things would obviously require payouts on behalf of insurance company when a claim is made because of them; so they will therefore offer cheaper premiums to riders who follow this advice.
5. Compare quotes
When you are sent a renewal offer by your current insurer, you should bare in mind that it has likely been made in the knowledge that you will not want to spend time comparing deals to find the cheapest insurance quote available.
However, if you spend some time comparing offers from other insurance companies who are keen to steal your custom, you could well find yourself a cheaper deal. You will likely find that it was well worth the additional time and effort.
A word of warning
The final point isn’t really a tip on how to money saving, but more a word of warning. In this age of recession and increasing levels of fraud, insurance companies are desperately attempting to reduce their expenditure. This has result in the omission of parts of insurance packages which previously came as standard.
Additional features like legal protection and breakdown cover will no longer be included in all motor insurance packages. You should therefore check all the details before agreeing to a deal, and don’t assume that they these additional features will automatically be included. If they are not mentioned, then they are almost defiantly not featured.
Couple of weeks that the first images appeared on the front of the Ducati Extreme 1199 or (which is yet to know the official name) and a few days ago Motociclismo.it print edition published in a collection of photos of details the new Italian bike. Although the photo of the front seat is the LED lights straight out of an Audi there are a few more photos.
In them see things as interesting as the new chassis will not be carbon fiber, but will be as we had been Trellising type used to. Yet this new chassis will not follow the conventional structure of the other bikes on the market, since its form is slightly different and uses the engine as part of the structure.

No longer a rumor, but Asphalt & Rubber will say that the news has come from a reliable source, so we could see this coming September for two new models in the Ducati Streetfighter. The first Ducati Streetfighter 1198, would be the big engine, but would not use the 11 º Testator engine of 1200 cc Ducati Multithread Superbike nor the present. It would be a new version of what we already know. On the other hand find the Streetfighter Ducati 848, if you use the engine of the bike you already know the Ducati 848 EVO seems that is being a bestseller.
Perhaps the trickiest part of this rumor is too fit the filing dates of these two new models differ with the world premiere of the 1199 Ducati Extreme or whatever they call it. Since the introduction of the new superbike was scheduled for EICMA Milan Show in November this year and these two new bikes could be ready by now, but waiting their turn for not “bothering” the Superbike.
There will be attentive to the news of Borgo Panigale.
Triple Blacked version is the line opened by the BMW R1200GS, and consists of a gray granite chassis, swinger Silver Metallic Nurburg opaque, matte black inverted, fork and a seat in gray and black. For all this they will charge 170 euros to be added to your BMW F800GS price when the purchase from the dealer closest to your home.
The other new version, called Yellow Sun, it costs 270 euros, little more than Triple Black. This over-priced is that the transformed version of the bike a bit more than before, but do not expect too radical a transformation. Say these pack gives the BMW F650GS router a lot more air and more practicable for beginners. The list includes a larger screen than the original, a larger fender and a bright yellow paint they say giving that you a younger look to the bike.
To taste the colors, but if you like these colors you know you have to scratch my pocket little more when you buy you’re desired BMW F.

And for the retailers should also try some new vents in the rear that improve depression that formed after the driver and increase comfort.
Increase the capacity for the bags in which there is now roomed for more than 150 liters. Almost as much space as in the trunk of a single-volume. To complete the aesthetic review must mention that the fairing has also been tweaked in the front is now more streamlined and even more impressive, now offers more protection from wind and elements.
The chassis has been improved by tweaking the damping of the two trains for more comfort without losing control on bends. Everything else we know, its chassis with tubes made of aluminum square, the horizontal six-cylinder engine and electronic injection. In the accessories section for a bike that takes almost everything, we have ABS, Airbag integrated browser. We can also install a stereo 80 W SRS and six speakers that lets you enjoy music in almost any format.
All this to renew little that many call the real flagship of Honda. And that is the size of a real ship, but once in place and the right driver can almost stop behaving like a sport. That if, radio and suitcases.
