Profile of MotorcycleBuying a motorcycle can be a big investment. Often times, the brand name, size and style of the bike are all that get attention. However, just like buying a car, it pays to invest some time in learning more about the bike itself — including how safe it is. And, just like vehicles, motorcycles can range widely in this area. Every year, new models are produced with various specs. Doing your homework can help you ensure that you buy a bike that is safe, but also one that gives you the best edge on the road. It helps to know that you can reduce motorcycle insurance premiums by selecting a safer bike.

What Makes A Motorcycle Safe?

Most of today's modern motorcycles are designed to be safe. They are tested and rated many times over to ensure that safety. Additionally, many manufacturers will tell you that the most important factors to keep in mind include the following:
  • The motorcycle CCs
  • Seat structure and comfort
  • Engine size and power
When considering these factors, remember that you should not consider buying a bike that is too powerful for you. That's why being a well-trained and skilled driver is the most important thing you can do to ensure you are not filing motorcycle insurance claims for accidents! Take the time to enroll in a safety course. Practice. Learn more about proper usage, safe turns and how to brake properly in any condition. You control the safety of today's bike.

Research Your Motorcycle

Take some time to research the make and model of your prospective bike online, with a specific goal at looking at customer experience as well as overall performance. Does the bike handle well? Does it feel comfortable? Does it have a poor record for accidents or mechanical failures? All of this information is available for most motorcycles today. If you are buying a used bike (even one that has not been used much) it is usually best to have a professional provide a full inspection of it before you commit to making a purchase.

Motorcycle insurance can be there to help protect your investment, but it is up to you choose a bike that's safe enough to protect you on it. Your skill is at the heart of that level of safety.
