Starting another bike insurance thread.
I don’t pay much attention to bike insurance as it has always been fairly inexpensive for me ( 51 with 30 years riding experience). For comparison my Kawasaki Z900 (954 cc ) cost me $250 per year full coverage and I just got my bill for the GSXS and it is just over $600...... Crazy difference, I pd half that for my Z1k’s. My agent is going to cross shop but what is it just a benefit of owning a Suzuki ??

I wonder why it is so much more expensive then Kawasaki. Oh well .. is what it is just curious as to why.

I don’t know what you guys are complaining about. If I was only paying $600 for my gsx-s I’d be jumping up and down. I have the same experience as you guys and my gsx-s in Canada, without any claims or tickets in 30 years is $1750 a year. So take the extra $1150 you have (I haven’t taken the currency difference into account) and buy a pile of booze and celebrate. 😀

oh, my 1995 VFR750 costs me $580 a year to insure.

Check Dairyland. They have specialized in MC insurance forever. Still 600 per year doesn't sound that bad. I think mines about that for really good coverage and no months off (another way to save money).

I have been with Dairy land for years because of price. When my agent cross shopped this time they found Progressive was almost half.

Progressive is $288 for my 2018 GSX-S1000f & $248 for my 2016 Bandit. Full coverage, (comp, collision, high limit liability, etc...). Loyatly is nice; but with an insurance company, price shopping is better.

I am sure it makes sense to insurance companies ( LOL ) but it is crazy ..... as to me there seams to me no rhyme or reason to prices.

As a quick FYI - the White Mountains of NH are where I live. Not sure I have ever seen another GSX-S1000 in the area.

I live about 45 min from Littleton and ride the White Mtn area most every weekend. I have never seen a GSXS on the road either.We will have to do a ride in this summer ... that is assuming everything finally opens up that is. I ride alone a lot but also ride with a bud that has a FJR and a one that owns a Z9.

State Farm is $312/yr for me with full coverage and all the bells and whistles. Definitely makes sense to shop it.

@RAS and @GSXS-NH We have some close friends that live in Sugar Hill and try to make it up that way at least once a year. We tend to spend a decent amount of time in Littleton as well while up there. Hope to be up that way later this year. If I do, I’ll try to find a place to rent a bike and hit you guys up to go riding.
