LINCOLN, R.I. - The wind in your face and the sun on your shoulders. The road beneath your feet. An endless sky up ahead.
There’s much to love about riding a motorcycle, and the number of people doing so has risen steadily in recent years. In fact, the Federal Highway Administration reported there were 8.6 million private and commercial motorcycles on U.S. roads in 2015, compared to just 8 million in 2009.
That’s why Amica Insurance is reminding motorcycle owners to have the right coverage in place, especially since accidents and thefts do happen, and at a higher rate than for cars. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 88,000 motorcyclists injured in 2015, while the National Insurance Crime Bureau reported that motorcycle thefts rose 2 percent from 2015 to 2016.
Motorcycle insurance with Amica1 provides:
- Protection for damage to your motorcycle
- Coverage for you and your passengers
- Liability protection
- Discounts2 for safety equipment (including anti-theft devices and anti-lock brakes), insuring more than one more motorcycle, and bundling with other policies
“Today’s motorcycle owners typically have a home, cars and, in some cases, umbrella insurance for additional liability protection,” said Ben Mellino, senior assistant vice president in Amica’s sale and client services department. “By having all these insurance policies with the same company, they can save money through bundling discounts.”
