Top 10 Most Expensive Motorcycles To Insure

1. Suzuki Hayabusa

Suzuki Hayabusa

Obviously, if the ZX-14R was in the second spot, the Suzuki Hayabusa would be the only choice for the most expensive motorcycle to insure. The ‘Busa shares all the performance numbers (and risk factors) of the Kawi with a slightly smaller 1340cc engine, too, but has been around longer (since 1999, before the 186-mph gentlemen’s agreement for top speed among the manufacturers), giving riders more time to make mistakes on them. Thus, more insurance claims and one of the highest rates today. Like the ZX-14R, we found rates varying drastically between different carriers, though on average the Suzuki was marginally pricier to insure.

    Surprise to see the Desmosedici not on the list.. When I tried insuring my D16rr no one would insure it but State Farm, AAA, and Gieco. I pay the same rate for that and my RSV4 both are really expensive…

    What a surprise to see so many insurance company advertisements on the pages of this article; insurance companies have done more to damage the economy than any other industry, save for energy companies.

      Insurance companies offer protection when times go bad… its quite obvious that when we go through a terrible recession, that insurance companies will perform poorly. By its nature, insurance is tied to financial products and the financial industry. Don’t blame the insurance companies. There are many good ones on this site!!

    I owned two bikes and both of them made the list. Electra Glide Ultra Limited and GSX-R 1000. It’s time to retire these toys and just have wet dreams instead

    Not surprising at all to see the sportbikes at the top of the list.
