What Does Motorcycle Insurance Cover?
Whether it’s a scooter for getting around town, or a touring cycle for those cross-country treks you’ll never forget, our motorcycle insurance coverage options can be designed just for you.
Put yourself at ease. We’ll help you repair or replace your ride with collision coverage for crashes, and comprehensive coverage for theft, fire or storms. Have you tricked your motorcycle with extra chrome, saddlebags or a trailer? Our policy automatically gives you $3,000 of customization coverage, with higher limits available.
Gear protection coverage
Safety should come first when you hit the road — that’s why we offer protection for your riding gear. Get up to $1,000 of safety apparel coverage for your helmet, boots and other gear and ride on with style.
Collision deductible waiver
So, you’ve accidentally backed your bike into your car. Now what? With our collision deductible waiver, if both your motorcycle and car are insured by us, we’ll waive one of the deductibles.
Earned accident forgiveness
Your good driving habits really pay off! If you and the drivers on your policy have been accident-free with your current insurance company for five consecutive years, switch to us and your first accident won’t cause a rate increase* — no matter how much your claim comes to.
We all make mistakes. If you accidentally hurt someone or damage their property, our liability coverage will help keep you financially protected, so you can keep your future plans on track.
Insurance for Many Types of Motorcycles
Motorcycles come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why we offer protection for a variety of different models including cruisers, sport motorcycles, mopeds, motorized scooters and touring motorcycles.
However, there are some exclusions when it comes to custom or high value motorcycles and motorcycles designed specifically for racing. If you think your ride might fall under one of those categories, connect with your agent today and learn more about how we can protect your two-wheels.
What Motorcycle Insurance Doesn't Cover
Though your standard motorcycle policy protects you in many ways, there are some situations when it doesn’t protect you. For instance, if a driver without insurance hits you and causes damage to your cycle or causes bodily injury, you could be left covering the repair and/or medical costs. Or if you get stranded on the side of the road because of a dead battery, your standard policy doesn’t cover assistance. The good news is there are additional coverages you can add to your motorcycle policy for protection from instances like these.
It’s important to fully understand what’s included in your standard policy so you know what coverages to consider adding to your policy for a broader range of coverage and more peace of mind.
Save for the Unexpected With Our Diminishing Deductible Coverage
When you have a motorcycle insurance claim, you might have to pay a deductible before your insurance company kicks in to cover the repairs or replacement costs. At American Family Insurance, we know that a deductible isn’t always the easiest thing to pay after an accident. But with our Diminishing Deductible, we hope to ease that burden by offering a way to reduce your collision and comprehensive deductible amount. Here’s how it works:
Earn Credit Immediately
We’ll credit your deductible $100 day one. Let’s say you have a $500 deductible. Good news — it just dropped to $400.
Watch Your Deductible Diminish
Your deductible will continue to reduce each year at policy renewal, up to your policy’s maximum limit, as long as you maintain your policy with us.
Savings When You Need It
If you have a claim, you’ll pay a reduced deductible amount thanks to your Diminishing Deductible coverage. Your deductible then resets, so you’ll go right back to earning a reduced deductible amount.
