Hi guys has anyone done an insurance quote on the F3?

My current insurer (H & R) £1077
Carole Nash £2161

I cant believe it, it was cheaper to insure my GSXR 1000 that did the best part of 200 mph lol.

Jesus, i gather thats what you have to pay to be different?????

Thats surprising. My insurance company (State Farm) goes strictly by cc's.....the F3 insurance will be cheaper than that of the F4 (or any other open class bike).

Wish that was the case but UK insurers see it as it highly nickable and sort after because it worth a lot

When did this happen? I wonder if I'll have a higher premium when my next bill comes....

About july or august of 2011. I know because my 07 mv was written off by insurance, no fault of my own it was parked. MY insurance went from 53 a month for an 07 mv f4 1000R with full coverage to 48 a month for an 08 R6. I went crazy on the phone and my agent told me they no longer do it strickly by cc anymore, and its also based on the classification of motorcycle.

Oh great. I pay mine once a year in February. I'll be expecting a higher bill here in a few weeks....

I was paying State Farm 40.00 a month for full coverage on my 1098. When I switched to the F4, it went to $175.00 a month. WTF?
State Farm said that it was due to cc's, but I said the 1098 had 99cc's more, so how does that make any sense. Plus there are far more Ducati on the roads, with far more claims. When I had my S1K, it was $201 a month!!!!! That's part of why I sold it off.

I had to switch to Gieco just to lower it to $100 a month, and that's the best I can get. I am 32 with a clean record and perfect credit score too.

What was their explanation? I mean they're both sportbikes and the 1098 actually has more cc's (if its a regular F4). I think my insurance for my F4 was actually a little lower than for my 1098 because of the displacement.

Not sure if us Brutales should post hear but I will anyway! My insurance on a 1090 rr came in at £300 (a year) last April opposed to what would have been £100 on my Z1000 both fully comp (the benefits of age - and the only benefit I can think of as I write). Wondering what it will be in April considering I locked the front end in the dry causing £7k of damage this year. The high price of insurance is not just the high cost of the bike but mainly the high price of the parts so I was told. Mark

It does have less cc's then the 1098 and they are both Italian sport bikes, so I don't know what their deal was. They said "maybe it has more cc?" and I said "no, this one has less", but they just said "well IDK then". That is why I had to drop them. I even thought it was maybe a stupid agent, so I called other agents, but got the same story. Who knows?
