Insurance...
« on: August 17, 2013, 01:35:17 pm »
Have any UK owners got thoughts on insurance, please? I trade in my GS Adventure in a couple of weeks for a new Trophy SE, but the quotes I am getting are at best £130 up on my GS (£250, up to £380). My new Trophy is standard spec, plus £1500 of extras, and it is these that seem to be making the huge difference. (Ironically, one of the extras is an alarm!).

I am a 54 year old, have ridden all my life, full ncb, no accidents/convictions, etc.

Any advice would be welcomed, thank you.

You don't list who you've had quotes from, I have my Trophy insured through brokers MCE (BSB sponsors) try this http://www.mceinsurance.com/ or call them 0844-338 68 88.

When I insured mine in January they were doing a 15 month policy which equated to around £220ish/yr, I think. Exact figures on another thread.

Thank you for your responses and suggestions. My current best bet is with Bennetts, although my premium has been loaded by £130 because I have added heated grips and seats, alarm, pannier bags and painted top box to my order. I don't quite understand why I am a greater risk because I have heated seats...

Bennets definitely - and do it through a cashback site such as Quidco. I'm 55, clean licence and was quoted around £130 per annum, plus a further £45 back going through Quidco - and thats fully comp with protected NCB.
Only condition is that it must be garaged between 10pm and 6am, when living at home!
