Motorcycle insurance groups list – 2019

IMG 2800 - Motorcycle insurance groups list – 2019

Motorcycle insurance groups range from 1 to 17 for a majority of insurers. The lower the number, the cheaper that motorbike or scooter is likely to be to insure. When you’re comparing motorbikes during the buying process, it’s worth thinking about how much they would cost to insure and what the cheapest motorcycle for you to insure will be.

If you want to get a quick motorcycle insurance estimate then use our form. We’ve formulated seven questions that takes just 60 seconds to fill out and you’ll have an estimate that’s been proven to be 90% accurate.

Motorcycle insurers are typically very tight-lipped when it comes to divulging the insurance groups they class each motorcycle in – as this is their special sauce; the way they get one-up on their competition, so it’s unlikely that any insurer or broker will publish their info.

It is worth noting that a bike’s insurance group will vary depending on the insurer. Each insurer has its own grades, although they will be fairly close to each other. Here at Biker Rated we’ve spoken to three industry sources who have checked over our list to ensure it is as accurate as possible.

See our guide for maxi scooter insurance groups.

If you’re looking for a bike that’s not listed, drop us a message using the contact form and we’ll research it and add it to the list.

Low insurance group motorbikes

Generally speaking, the lower the performance of the motorcycle, i.e. in most cases, the smaller the engine capacity, the lower its insurance group will be and the cheaper it will be to insure. There are of course other factors, such as how much a motorcycle or scooter is likely to cost to repair. Things like bodywork on sportsbikes are expensive and therefore will increase the cost of a bike’s insurance cover, even if it produces a similar amount of power to another model without expensive bodywork.

Insurance group 1 motorbikes

Insurance group 1 is the cheapest group. There are very few motorcycles in this category and most motorbikes that are group 1 are actually 50cc scooters.
