I think that you need to give additional info. Like you are in the UK?

Re: 00 gsxr 600 insurance

Mmmm most insurers don't like insuring sport bikes to under 21 espically as you claim it is restricted. They will want to see an independant report that it has been properly restricted by a qualified techician. Use the comparison sites it can get you a better deal.

Good luck

Re: 00 gsxr 600 insurance

i live in the UK went on moneysupermarket and they couldn't give me any quotes going to keep on looking just seeing if anyone else had any problems getting insured? i have been advised that if your under the age of 21 and dont have any no claims bonus you wont get insured for less than 5000 probaly should have checked this before i handed the cash over lol

Contact swintons they have a special bike section you might have some joy. When did you pass your teat and how long to your 21. All insurance companies don't like sports bike as first bike

Re: 00 gsxr 600 insurance

Corona try MCE 0871 222 7920. I think your age is really going to hamper any chance of an affordable quote. Sure do the advanced course it will lower the premium but its still going to be pants down prices. The prices don't get reasonable until your over 25 unless Daddy can sort it out ( or fork it out ) maybe a 125cc for a couple more years?

Re: 00 gsxr 600 insurance

^^I never understood insurance policies tbh.

A male under 25 is more dangerous than a 16-46yr old girl/woman putting on mascara, looking at a map, writing a txt message, playing with the radio, brail driving with her knee.

And I've seen all the above!!!

Re: 00 gsxr 600 insurance

It's also the postcode that makes a difference, though in OP's case, it IS his age and first bike.

Re: 00 gsxr 600 insurance

Just tryed the whole postcode thing as my postcode is the centre of Brighton saved myself 1200 but still leaves me with 5300 just found a suzuki bandet 400 for cheep so may just drive that for 1 year to get the 1 year no claim and I will be over 21 so should be able to afford it thanks for all the feedback people just wish it wasn't so difficult learnt my lesson now haha if only gsxr's weren't so nice I could just sell it but there's no chance of that happening lol

Re: 00 gsxr 600 insurance

The change in rules next year is really gonna hurt some people. Have you thought about Kawasaki 250 ninja. Or get a aprilia rs125 full power. 33bhp a proper sports bike and a good way to learn how to maintain a bike. I still have mine never gonna sell it took much fun

Getting a vehicle on the road in the uk seems to be quite an ordeal. My bike insurance is 14 dollars a month in ny.
