The specific amount you will pay for your Austin motorcycle insurance will be based on the age, model and value of your motorcycle, as well as your age, driving history, riding habits, and other factors.
Even the amount you ride your motorcycle may make a difference. If you only take your bike out for occasional trips, you might get a lower rate than somebody who uses their motorcycle to commute up and down I-35 each day.
You may qualify for insurance discounts that will reduce your rates. For example, if you have a clean driving history and have a theft prevention device installed on your bike, you may qualify for reduced rates. Some insurers provide a discount if you simply pay your premium via an automatic debit from your bank account.
You can find the right coverage at a rate you can afford by comparing Austin motorcycle insurance quotes from a handful of local companies. A Trusted Choice member agent can quickly provide you with competitive rate quotes from a variety of local insurers.
In addition to these requirements, your lender may require comprehensive and collision insurance if you owe money on a motorcycle loan. You can also choose to purchase more than minimum required coverage in order to protect your investment, even if your motorcycle has been fully paid off.
The requirements listed above apply to street legal motorcycles that you ride on public roads and highways. Travis County also has dirt bike trails and sport bike tracks. If you have a dirt bike that you only ride on trails or tracks, you will have different licensing and coverage requirements. The Texas Off Highway Vehicle Program (OHV) requires registration of off-road vehicles on public trails.
