    K16 GTLe Insurance.....
    « on: 2014-12-03 16:09:25 »
    My Black Beast is ready for me tomorrow..... Armed with my 5 days free insurance I've been looking companies in the UK and found such a wide variance in premiums!


    From what I have gleaned, avoid MCE like the plague, Bennetts have good premiums and are well thought of, BMW itself (Devitt) are expensive.


    Any help or thoughts, recommendations....

      When I had to insure the bike it turned out that BMW itself was the cheapest by far in The Netherlands.
      At the moment I pay € 850 per year with maximum no claim bonus (75%),otherwise it would be about € 3000  :o . BTW almost € 150 of the € 850 is tax.

        Picking my new gt up on Friday, trading in a Gtr1400.
        Looked at the insurance and Bmw direct seem the cheapest.

          MCE's excesses are ridiculous. Bennetts are not that well thought of and have a reputation for being a touch unethical in how they do things. Have you tried Carole Nash?

          As for what is best for you, I can't really say as your rider profile could be totally different to mine. Just watch the level of excess, see what is included in the policy (legal cover, breakdown in the UK and Europe) and whether it includes cover to drive other bikes.

          Ebike might be worth a try as well.

            Or try Adelaide Insurance in Belfast. I've used them for a few years now and they are the best insurance company I have ever experienced.

              I,m with MCE me had no issues with there insurance over the last few years on a ZZR1400 , on changing to the  K16 Devitts were offering a great deal that I got MCE to match at least for this year though next year I will try out the IAM insurance company Cornwells.
