Italian Bike Insurance

I have been getting some pretty outrageous quotes for insurance on Italian bikes! Some quotes are 3 to 4 times more a year than for my 2010 R1! I have been using an Insurance broker and I can't believe some of their quotes!!! Any of you guys with Italian dream machines can help out with some companies and quotes would be much appeciated. I was expecting it t be more expensive; but !

I'm old becsuse I figured out how to live this long, in spite of more than a few things that have tried to kill me. I'm bald because I pulled all of my hair out a long time ago dealing with people like you. Not much of a belly though.

How have you been? to see you posting again.

That said, after USAA stopped insuring bikes a few years back I called around and Geico was the lowest for the Ducati.

I'm with Foremost. They were close to half other insurer's rates on my R1. The most recent renewal letter mentioned they've now got some sort of partnership going with Ducati, which should translate to favorable rates. Would try them.

Yeah you guys are all correct about Geico. Got a quote for an MV F4 for $1100 a year which isn't too bad for an MV.

I'm with Progressive and my premium would increase if I replace my ape with any of the Japanese litre bikes.

Also, newer machines will have higher comp & collision.

I've got mine insured with Progressive, It costs less than half the amount to insure my husbands R1. I've also been told by many agents that depending on the model, they classify them differently. I even got a quote from Statefarm not too long ago and progressive was still much cheaper with the same coverage.
