Explaining Insurance to the Motorcycle Industry and Customer
If you own, ride, or sell motorcycles, you will need to be informed about shielding insurance.
Manufacturers and dealers as well as the riders themselves must acquaint themselves with the associated risks and procure tailored coverage that protects them from the variables. This overview will simplify the basics of separate insurance class.
Motorcycle Insurance for the Owner and Rider
Generally, most standard auto and personal liability plans do not include motorcycle insurance. It is for this reason that insurance coverage intended explicitly for motorcycles, motor scooters, motor bikes and others like them is required for those that own and ride them. Coverage protects against liability of the owner or operator if bodily injury or property damage to a third party is sustained. In the majority of cases, insurance carriers that provide motorcycle insurance include physical damage coverage for fire, theft, comprehensive and collision policies. Associated quotes are typically established through measurements of cubic centimeters of the engine displacement.
Those companies that offer motorcycle insurance also recommend uninsured motorists coverage as supplementary coverage to the liability policy. There are those that present the option of medical payments as well as passenger liability coverage.
Motorcycle and Motor-Bike Custom Manufacturing and Fabricating Insurance
Due to the increased popularity of customizing motorcycles, many businesses deal with original details, frame modifications as well as engine variation. This, of course, lends itself to differing forms of liability exposure for the custom bike designers, manufacturers, fabricators and service or motorcycle fix-it shops.
Related policies incorporate the following coverages:
• General Liability Insurance
• Products and Completed Operations Coverage
• Garage-Keepers Legal Liability Insurance
• Commercial Personal Property Insurance – of which Theft Coverage is a part of
Motorcycle and Motor-Bike Dealers Insurance
This type of insurance is generally provided on an amended automobile dealers- liability form – a form that’s specifically adapted for the motorcycle dealer’s needs.
There are two differing coverages:
1. A policy that includes premises liability for sales operations in regard to the service or repair of customers’ motorcycles.
2. A policy that includes coverage protection for customers’ motorcycles for the time that they are stored in the dealers’ repair shop. This type of plan is similar to a garage keeper’s legal liability insurance policy.
The dealers’ supplementary physical damage insurance policy protects stored motorcycles that are waiting to be sold and it includes coverage for risks, such as fire, theft, collision, vandalism, riot, and other specified risk exposures.
