    bike insurance

    Forum Sponsor
    Hello all! my name is wil. im new to the bike world. just baught a 2006 honda cbr600rr.
    why is it so damn hard to get insurance for this thing?
    i was quoted over 300$ per month, and thats with taking the weekend safety course, and having a clean driving record for 30 years.
    ive only had my m2 for a couple months ,,,does anyone have any suggestions on cheaper insurance? or do i simply have to go and purchase one of those retractable lisc plates?!! lol just kidding,,,, but seriously 300per month is just insanity.
    thanks a concerned new rider....

    either pay the insurance rates (which will all be insanely high) or sell the bike and get something smaller.

    probably should have checked rates before buying.

    get your M asap
    that and if you go your first year no claims/tickets
    will go down at renewal
    you get no credit towards bike rating for having safely driven a car
    will be a few years until it comes down to anything reasonable

    300 a month for a new rider on a 600rr is a great rate. Most new riders are looking at $4000+ (and often ++) yearly if they want their first street bike to be a supersport.

    As others have said, it will likely come down to 3 options
    a)pay 300 a month and enjoy riding your bike
    b)use your bike on a track (the money you save on insurance pays for track days)
    c)sell your bike and buy one that insurance doesn't hate and get rates closer to $100 a month for the first year.

    Here we go again.

    OP: You've done the motorcycle equivalent of buying a racing Corvette as your first ever car, so it should be no surprise that it's not cheap to insure. Previous non-motorcycle insurance and license history means nothing for the world of motorcycles, only your driving record.

    And yes, $300/month is quite a good rate in your situation.

    If you want less, sell the bike and buy something other than a supersport for your first bike.

    BTW Javafan, full M makes little difference in cost. Only years of safe riding do.

    Cardinal rule with motorcycles: Call for insurance quote BEFORE buying anything.

    IF you can find someone willing to insure you for $300 a month, and you're prepare to pay that, enact the policy before they change your mind.

    As a new rider on an SS, that's about as good as it gets.



    That being said, you can probably find a naked bike with a few less HP and get coverage all day long for $100-125/month
