A moped is a type of small motorcycle that typically doesn’t have as strict of licensing requirements as automobiles or full motorcycles. However, you likely still need insurance!
Most mopeds on the market today don’t have manual gears; they simply twist and go. They’re incredibly economical and convenient, an excellent choice for those seeking a little runaround in cities with a lot of traffic.
However, mopeds aren’t allowed on major highways due to their engine size, with a maximum of 50cc. This means most mopeds will only reach between 28 and 30 miles per hour.
Recharging is as simple as plugging into an electric outlet or a charging station.
Harley-Davidson has created a range of products to lead the electrification of two wheels. This includes their LiveWire® all-electric motorcycle and, more recently, the STACYC range of electric balance bikes and Serial 1 electric pedal-assist bicycles.
In the United States, moped insurance requirements differ from state to state, so it’s vital to understand the moped insurance laws in your state.
In most states, you’ll be required to take out a liability insurance policy at a minimum if you have an engine of 50cc or greater.
However, some states require insurance for engines with top speeds below 30 mph or engines less than 50cc. Therefore, it’s critical to educate yourself on the requirements in your state.
In some areas, a license or endorsement is needed to use a moped on the road. However, there are some states where you don’t need a special license at all to ride a moped.
The following states do not impose specific motorcycle licensing requirements for mopeds:
Aside from the legalities, insurance for your moped is also imperative to protect you from the financial consequences of losses for you which you a liable if you’re involved in an unplanned incident.
Liability coverage is recommended as the bare minimum you should opt for. If you are found responsible for damages to another individual or their property, you may be covered up to your liability policy limits.
Collision coverage provides coverage for the costs to repair damages to your moped if you hit - or are hit by - another object or vehicle.
We typically recommend comprehensive insurance to protect your moped from damages not covered by collision - such as theft, fire, or vandalism.
Our customers enjoy tinkering with their mopeds to make commuting more enjoyable. Those additional accessories you’ve added to your bike? Not to worry. We offer coverage for that.
