Are sportsbikes more expensive to insure?

When you ride a bike for sports, insurance is vital for giving you protection and peace of mind. This is because there is a higher chance of you having an accident as you are riding a more powerful bike and going at faster speeds. However, for this reason, the insurance is likely to be higher than it is for your regular bike insurance, too.

When taking out insurance for your sportsbike there are ways to keep the costs down. As these bikes are particularly attractive to thieves, considering security and keeping it in a secured garage overnight will help to reduce your insurance premium.
