Increases in helmet and leather limits

Innovations in motorcycle helmets and protective clothing have pushed up the cost for serious bikers wanting the best crash protection.

Safety conscious bikers can spend more than £1,000 on a set of race standard leathers, and another £500 for a high-quality helmet. That’s why specialist insurance broker Bikesure has increased the limits on its helmet and leather insurance from £1,000 to up to £2,000 for those with a motorcycle policy with the broker.

Prices range from £24.99 for £1,000 of cover, to £29.99 for £1,500, up to £34.99 for a £2,000 limit. A standalone policy with a limit of £1,000 is still available for those with their motorcycle insurance elsewhere.

Cover includes motorcycle clothing, including leathers, riding boots, gloves and helmets damaged as a result of an accident in the UK.

Gerry Bucke, general manager at Bikesure, said helmets and, often, leathers needed to be replaced after an accident, adding financial misery to misfortune.

“However good a rider you are, the roads can be a dangerous place for bikers and good quality protective gear is essential,” he added. “But with technology improving all the time, helmets and leathers can cost a lot of money, and you’ll often need to replace these lifesavers following an accident. That’s why we’re improving our cover to reflect the fact that serious bikers now want the best protection they can afford.”
