Just a quick poll:

How little or how much are people paying for their SR 50 insurance, and in what State? I'm just curious. Please take a moment to answer. I have been told it can be as low as $200/year or as high as $500 a year. Which is more accurate. And which scooter/motorcycle insurance company is the BEST? Does anyone agree on any particular 1 or 2 companies which specialise on Scooters?? I'd like to begin my research before I buy my Ditech.

Thanks.

I have both a Yamaha ('01)and an Mz scooter ('02), each one cost approx $90 a year for full (over covered, btw) coverage through State Farm. They are not insuring a brand, per se, but replacement cost. The Ditech, although worth more than mine, shouldn't make that much difference.

I'm insured through progressive, I've only got one vehicle, the 2002 ditech SR, and it costs me 69.00$ a month in the state of Missouri to insure. I have full coverage with a 250.00$ deductible for collision and comprehensive.

Its a bit pricey, but that was the best quote I could get, being a 21 year old male (we really get the shaft on insurance), despite the fact that I have a perfect driving record. Oh well, its worth it to have my scooter safe in St. Louis, where I've already had other scooters stolen on THREE seperate occasions. If I lived in a safer place, I'd probably drop the comprehensive insurance (theft, vandalism, weather, etc) to save money.

Peace,

i live in hawaii and out here we dont have to have insurance on our mopeds. out here all scooters 50cc and under are called mopeds and they get a one time registration fee of $15 for as long as you own the bike and you dont have to have insurance. mopeds are just like bicycles out here too and no helmet needed. just fun in the sun.

I have a 2001 SR50 carb model and I'm paying 156 a year through Nationwide for full coverage with high liability limits and the lowest possible deductibles. A lot better than my big bike was...
