As you can see from the table, each bike varies in power and value. The higher value and higher power bikes, generally will have a higher insurance premium. This is because insurers see these kinds of bikes as more of a risk.
Another important factor to consider when purchasing your bike & getting bike insurance is security. Motorcycle news report that £3 million worth of bikes are stolen each month and that only 16% of these thefts are recovered. The way in which you secure you bike can affect the price of your premium. The best place to store your bike is a locked garage. If you don't have access to a garage do consider using anti theft measures such as ground anchors, immobilisers and bike locks.
