Don't get conned by that one...........Bennetts said I should fit one of THEIR approved alarms to the numptystrada, cost about 300 squid, and when they worked it out it would have saved me about a tenner, shop around, one of the best at the moment seems to be online at Ebike.

Don't know how much discount but be careful when you compare quotes. I tried eBike and they came in about 30 cheaper than my renewal quote from Ducati Insurance - but when you take in the fact that with eBike the compulsory excess was well over double the DI deal then I would instantly be out of pocket by several hundred quid if I make a claim. Got protected no claims with DI as well.

An alarm may cost 300 and you will save 10% ie 30 if your lucky off your premium. That's how much Ducati Insurance knocked off my premium.

Glyn mate - don't forget they are a complete pain in the arse, especially the immobiliser part of them Personally I'm much happier with a big chain and ground anchor

The discount is usually around 7.5% - this can vary in terms of how the rate is calculated within the whole calculation. Access Underwriting policies offer up to 25% for security including discounts for anchors chains and garage alarms/garage defenders

I knew where you were coming from, but in return I was joking.

A flintlock with wet powder I take it!
I don't like the styling of 999's
I have an ST because it can take a topbox for my son to lean against, but even that has the lights styled by a blind man.
If they can replace the 999 with something like the Moto GP styled bike I'd buy one for me (sorry oliver).
