Motorbike Insurance Groups Explained

Get the facts on motorbike insurance before you buy


Motorbike insurance groups place different models of motorbikes into categories, depending on the size and power of the engine. Each insurance company will group motorbikes differently - there's no standard by which motorbikes are grouped.

Bikes with a larger engine will cost more to insure because they present a potentially greater risk to insurers - they have the potential to accelerate at a higher speed than smaller bikes.


Because insurance companies use different groups for motorbikes, it's worth shopping around to get the best deal for your bike. Use the comparison tables below to get motorbike insurance quotes from a number of different insurers quickly and easily:
