I've just received my renewal notice from my insurers (Aviva, through Bennetts) and the premium has shot up from £171 to, an eye-watering, £337! there's absolutely no change in my circumstances except my additional 1 years ncb.

I did speak to them and they were able to magically knock £60 off but, I'm not impressed.

I have over 30 years blemish free motoring in cars and on bikes and I do know that insurance is legal pick-pocketing but for heavens sake.......

Today we now have more motor bike insurers than just Norwich Union and Eagle Star of old and I am wondering who you chose.
Cheers.

Just checked Ducati's insurance and they can do it for £241.14. That includes ( as did my original ins) breakdown, helmets n leathers and all the accident and legal cover.

I have used them for 2 years now and pay 120 for same cover with 100 quid excess. They are happy to also add a Ninja when I get it to make a dual policy as obviously you are not actually getting ins through Ducati but with one of the brokers they use

Curious if that is a monthly or annual rate.

Go with Ducati Insurance. My third year with them, started at 180, now 160 with free recovery service thrown in now the Scrambler 2 year cover has finished (all this considering I have points and a ban to declare....which didnt incur a premium).

I was very surprised how cheap my insurance was ... I'm a brand new rider, so 0 years riding history, 0 years no claim bonus.
Carole Nash - £250.
My assumption is insurance costs are directly related to theft rates in the area (low) and my bike being garaged.

Philgoodscrambler....I notice we have similar age (ish) but it maybe location. If you're near Brighton I imagine your premium would suffer. I live in the middle of nowhere in Cornwall and have a locked garage.

Annually, that’s not bad!

I pay $45 a month for two bikes, fully comp. that’s about £35 right?

Bike 1 is a Desert Sled
Bike 2 is a DR650SE
