Bike Insurance in Ireland -How much do you pay?
 
Hi there,

I just want to see more or less what'd be an average price for an insurance in Ireland. I know they are very expensive and there aren't many companies in the market.

I tried to get a quote online but since I'm from Barcelona, they won't give it to me. Before I go to an agency I'd like to get some info (in case they want to rip me off). :ninja:

I'm 34 years old and have been driving bikes for the last 18 years. I would also buy a 500cc or 600cc irish bike.

Thanks

Ernest.-:bikerie:

I paid €900 for a Honda Bros 400.I'm 21 have full liecence,no no claims discount and a level 2 assessment.I'd say yours should be lower than this.

This is the thing that I don't get here... if a second hand bike costs 2-3K euro, howcome the insurance per year is already 40% of the bike's cost? :mad1:

Crazy, don't you thing?:unsure2: do you think scooters are much cheaper to insure (I don't know how to spell that word! :bag:)

Scooters should be cheaper to insure.Insurance is so high because of the amount of road traffic accidents and road deaths(well thats what the insurance companies say!!).

Re: Insurances in Ireland -How much do you pay?
 
My insurance costs nearly the same as my bike :bag:

Last year my insurance was 1314 with Nash...bought the bike for 1500...VRT'd it for 110 and taxed it for 67 = all up 2991 before I put a drop in or maintain it

29 with 3 years NCB, full licence, but live in Dublin and get rode for it...will be Quinn Directing it come renewal next month...they werent around last time

I drive a 3 series coupe as well and that costs a grand for myself [I]and[/I] the missus...rip off Ireland alive and well as a biker...

I'd expect yours to be a good bit cheaper though Ernest, once they take account of your previous riding experience...I lost my previous NCB from when I was younger as I lived in the States and in Australia for a few years in the middle
