Classic motorbikes are often as much of a hobby as a mode of transport - historically, for a bike to qualify as a classic, it must have been registered before 1982, though these days many insurers offer modern-classic policies for bikes built between 1983 and 1998.
A classic motorbike insurance policy can often come with benefits and extras usually excluded from a regular policy, such as those listed above. You may also find that they cost less, since classic bike riders tend to ride less and take better care of their bikes, meaning they pose a smaller risk to insurers.
