Before you even think about hopping on your motorcycle and taking off down the street, make sure that you have the right insurance. Your insurance protects you when you’re in an accident on your bike with another driver. It allows you to file a claim whether you caused the accident or someone else did. In addition to looking at the cost of the insurance, make sure you understand the amount of coverage that you need in Massachusetts.
How much is motorcycle insurance in Massachusetts?
Buying motorcycle insurance in Massachusetts is usually cheaper than buying auto insurance. Though some think that motorcycle riders are more likely to have accidents, car accidents usually cause more damage and lead to more injuries.
One thing to keep in mind is the type of insurance you want. Basic plans are the cheapest but only include the minimum coverage required by the state. Purchasing better quality coverage provides much more protection that just getting basic minimum coverage does not cover. Comprehensive plans often cover damage caused by acts of God such as a tree branch that smashes your fuel tank or a fire that ruins your motor. Better quality coverage also could pay for repairs necessary because of vandalism like repainting after someone keyed your bike.
Collision insurance is another type that you can add to your policy. With collision coverage, your insurer pays for damage caused by, you guessed it, collisions with another object. Many insurers also let you add compulsory coverage, which pays when you have an accident with someone who doesn’t have the minimum amount of insurance or has no insurance at all.
