Where to get insurance for an MV from in the UK

Got some insurance quotes last night with the intention of buying a new Brutale (989R or 1078RR not decided yet) when I get home from offshore and was absolutely shocked by some of the quotes!!

I have quite cheap insurance for my Street Triple R just now and was expecting a hike of maybe a couple of hundred quid maximum. Quotes ranged mostly from just over a grand all the way up to £9699!!! Which is the cost of the bike by the time you add on the excess!! One did offer it for £530ish which is quite good but I don't know if I can add my ST3R on the policy aswell as I want to use the NCB on both obviously rather than pay 2 separate insurances.

So is there a specialist insurer anyone in the UK are using that might be cheaper? Or just generally cheaper companies??

I know insurance is based on the individual but at those prices im willing to give anything a try.

FYI Im a 25yr old male Full UK license held for 4 yrs with 4 yrs NCB bike will be garage in a safe location (ie not London etc) I may have a small SP30 conviction but thats it. Also have car license also with 4yrs NCB

Cheers

You are right of course, every case is different. I've been with ebike for several years now, JDS had a thread recently about Carole Nash. If I was you I would try the confused, money-supermarket meerkats as advertised on TV. Certainly my advice would be shop around.

Yes, gotta shop around. CN weren't competitive for after I got the MV. I have a dual bike policy so most need to speak to you but I start with confused, go compare and the mcn compare site to get an idea of you to ring. Good luck! You should be able to get it right down.

Carol Nash [ already mentioned ] seem to be the cheapest at the moment , or you could try Bike Sure [ Adrian Flux ] . If you use the ' confused ' site you may get loads of phone calls you don't want . My mate did.

the right answer is to shop around, my previous bike to my F4 was a triumph and I had been using a company called ramasis ( triumph insurance) 0844 8800 961
I found them to be very competitive like all insurance companies I had quotes from they insisted on having an alarm fitted. Good luck!

mce insurance whether fully comp or third party is excellent price

and they PAY UP no hassle if you write the bike off


many companies may offer good price but its when you make a claim that the problems may start.

I can confirm mce are worth the extra cash when it comes to claiming back for a write off. (and you can buy the bike back for peanuts)

Like the guys say, you need to do your home work to get the best deal.

Some insurance firms run an unannounced promotion and you could get lucky when you ring up for a quotation.

CN is now owned by Groupama Insurance, so check to see if you have any other policies running with them, as you could be eligible for additional discounts.

hi - i changed my bike to a 989r a couple of months before my policy ran out - they put the renewal up from 140 to nearly 800. when i went on to www.thebikeinsurer.co.uk they gave me quite a few renewal quotes for the one hundreds - eventually went with motorcycle direct for £166 fully comp.
(fyi - female - 2 yrs ncb, 44 yrs, rural location, no points etc )

Another Carole Nash multi bike policy for me, I have found them very good to speak to on the phone, I have to haggle each renewal, but has been worth it
