Sports bikes and race replicas have been hugely popular with British riders for many years, and few insurance specialists understand these high performing thoroughbreds as well as Mackenzie Hodgson.
From the latest 1000cc superbikes like the Suzuki GSX-R1000 and Yamaha YZF-R1, to the screaming supersport 600 middleweights, and a new generation of A2-licence friendly supersport 300 machines such as the KTM RC 390 and Yamaha YZF-R3, Mackenzie Hodgson has got you covered, whatever you ride.
Whether you ride every day, on sunny days or even do the occasional track day, Mackenzie Hodgson offers a range of insurance policies to suit your individual needs and budget.
Road going sports bikes form the basis of the racers we see tearing around the circuits in national and international superbike and supersport racing. Indeed, remove the lights and mirrors, and make a few small modifications, and you’ll have
a 1000cc superstock bike capable of lapping the Isle of Man TT course at an average of over 134mph. The performance of a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, for the price of a family car. Staggering!
With that in mind, it’s hardly surprising that traditionally sports bikes have been considered high risk when it comes to finding an annual insurance policy. With their high powered engines, expensive bodywork and a reputation for getting pinched
by scumbag bike thieves, owning one of these two-wheeled rocketships are not for the fainthearted.
Sports bike riders tend to be among the most discerning of bikers, which is why we are able to offer a wide range of policies, underwritten by some of the UK’s leading insurance companies, with levels of cover that range from Third Party Only (TPO) to Third Party Fire and Theft (TPFT) and Fully Comprehensive.
Recognising that many performance bike riders are also kitted out with highly specified leathers, helmets, gloves and boots, our optional Leathers and Helmet Cover can also insure your riding gear for up to £2500.
Our other policy extras include breakdown cover, excess protection, a replacement bike service and personal accident insurance. All of our policies include motor legal expenses cover free of charge, which helps you recover any lost earnings, insurance
excess and vehicle rental costs in case of a non-fault accident.
The nature of sports bikes mean that they are often modified, with free flowing exhausts, replacement end cans and carbon fibre parts among the most popular accessories fitted by British riders. In many cases these modifications can make your motorcycle
more difficult or expensive to insure with some companies, but by speaking to a specialist broker like Mackenzie Hodgson (who fully understand the nature of motorcycle modifications and the way in which they alter the risk) you can usually find
the right cover, and sometimes with no additional costs.
We get sports bikes, and understand that just because you ride a desirable and racy looking machine, you don’t ride around like Marc Marquez (or even Neil Hodgson, for that matter). What we do know is that you love your bike, which is why you can rest assured that whether you’re looking for a quote or having to make a claim, we’ve always got your back.
Founded by former world class racers Neil Hodgson and Niall Mackenzie, few insurance brokers know sports bikes like Mackenzie Hodgson – which is why we believe that we can get you suitable rates and service for your high performance motorcycle.
