Touring Motorcycle Insurance

Touring motorbikes are synonymous with long distance hauls and usually do a lot more miles than other bike types.

And because of that they’re normally big bikes with huge seats and big windscreens to keep riders comfortable on cross-country slogs.

What is a touring motorcycle?

A touring motorbike is one designed to cover long distances and keep their riders comfortable while doing so.

They’re distinguishable because, unlike sports bikes, the rider usually sits upright with their feet below them, rather than behind them as is the case on smaller bikes.

Brands like Harley-Davidson, Victory and Triumph are all famous for their touring motorbikes while the likes of the Honda Gold Wing and the Yamaha FJR are some of the most renowned tourers.

How much is insurance for touring motorbikes?

Insurance for touring motorcycles is generally more expensive than for normal bikes.

That’s because they generally cover more miles, however that’s not always the case and insurance isn’t necessarily more expensive.

Passionate owners sometimes add new pipes and paintjobs to touring motorcycles. Unfortunately that can also increase insurance premiums because any modifications made to your bike must be declared to your insurer.

As is often the case with motorbike insurance, there’s no predicting how much your premium will be and the only way to be certain is to get a quote.
