Below, we’ll tell you more about scooter insurance and what you need to consider choosing the perfect policy for your unique needs.
While many use the terms ‘scooter’ and ‘moped’ interchangeably, they’re not the same.
If there is a platform where you can rest your feet while on the move, you’re most likely riding a scooter. However, if the engine is below 50cc, it’s classified as a moped.
Consequently, scooters tend to cost more than mopeds because of the increased top speed, acceleration, sophistication, engine size, and power. Therefore, scooters are also usually more expensive to insure than mopeds.
Different rules and regulations in the United States depend on your location. Because of this, it’s vital to understand the scooter insurance laws in your state. Nevertheless, you’ll find that most states require liability insurance coverage at a minimum for a scooter.
Two of the more lenient states are Montana and Florida, yet they still have some insurance requirements. For example, you need motorcycle insurance if you’ve taken out a loan to pay for some or all of your scooter.
No matter where you’re based in the US, we always advise that you take out an insurance plan. This will better protect you should something happen to your scooter.
Harley-Davidson Insurance will help you find the right insurance policy for your scooter type, budget, location, and corresponding state requirements.
Liability coverage is often the lowest possible protection when looking for the best scooter coverage. This policy may pay out if you’re involved in an incident, and you’ve caused damage to someone else or their vehicle.
It doesn’t cover incidents such as theft or vandalism. Moreover, your scooter repair costs aren’t usually covered either. It’s only about protecting the third party.
As a result, it is often recommended to add more coverage to become better insured.
If your scooter is damaged, to the point of being deemed a total loss, Replacement Cost coverage may provide the total replacement value rather than the depreciation value.
Scooters that qualify for this coverage are those that have not been previously owned/titled/registered to anyone else, and are the current model year or one year older.
Sometimes referred to as ‘Optional Equipment,’ this optional coverage may ensure the policyholder can fully repair or replace any damaged or stolen accessories without bearing the entire financial burden themselves.
This may include custom or additional parts and accessories added to the scooter beyond its original manufacturer's specifications.
Suppose the optional equipment is also damaged or destroyed in the same event that causes the scooter to be a total loss. In that case, the policyholder may receive compensation to cover the cost of replacing the equipment.
Full Cost Optional Equipment Replacement coverage may protect any optional equipment that has been added to a scooter. This may include aftermarket exhaust systems, high-performance engine parts, or chrome accents.
As mentioned, the cost of your insurance policy may differ based on engine size and several other factors.
