Classic Bike Insurance Quotes

classic motorbike insurance

If you are looking for classic motorcycle insurance, things can be confusing. After all, there are several companies that claim to offer insurance to classic motorbike owners, but all too often you'll discover that the insurance cover offered is not really designed with the needs of the classic bike enthusiast in mind, and so you may find yourself paying over the odds for cover that you don't need.

Generally speaking, a motorcycle is deemed a classic when it turns 30 years old. However, at Bikesure, we class some bikes from the 1990s and 2000s as vintage. This could be for any number of reasons, including because they're no longer being made. Learn more about all this and more in our blog on how old a bike has to be to get classic motorcycle insurance.
