Can you put that into context, ie what did you have before, how much was it worth and how much were you paying?

Given that a 1199S Tricolore is nearly 25k, I'm not surprised they want a tracker on it!!

I had a 1098S before, owned for 3 years and agreed valued at 10.5K and was paying 235 full comp with proctected NCB (9+years ncb) with Motorcycle Direct. Prior to that Ive had a 996, a 998, a couple of R1's and a Fireblade so its not as though Im new to 1000cc+ bikes.

True, but coming from something less than half the value is going to see a large increase in your premium, naturally.

235 of 10,500 is 2.23%
1071 of 23,495 is 4.5%

So yes it's an increase, but it's not as big as it seems!

There are a lot more factors to take into account as well as your history; bike value, rarity, replacement costs, "stealability", etc. A lot of these things will be unknown to the insurance industry so they are being over-cautious on finding a price until those costs become clearer.

It may also be that the insurers think that anyone who can afford 24k on a bike can also afford 1k on insurance...

All of your points are valid and I do understand the underwriters point of view but its just a bit of surprise to see such a big jump in the premium. The calls continue... worst quote so far 9197.19 which was most bemusing - no idea how they managed to come up with that.

At the end of the day its got to be insured by next Friday at the latest

Yeah, it's not good I agree.

Mine jumped from just over 100 a year for the 748 to nearly 400 when I bought the Hypermotard and moved to a dual policy. Luckily it's down to just over 200 now with Ducati Insurance, most likely as the value of the Hyper decreases and other factors mentioned come in to play.

Unfortunately you'll just have to pay it seems!

If it's down to the money alone, is it worth checking a six-month policy and then trying again after? Prices might have come down by then? Just be careful you don't screw yourself over with NCB, etc.

If your quotes are online quotes its worth actualy ringing the companies and asking for them to confirm the price and then say its too high its quiet amazing how much they can drop a quote when your actualy speaking to them never go with the first quote always try to haggle it down, i had one insurance company ring me back after i said it was too high for my bayliss rep and they had managed to cut the quote by 50% so always worth ringing and checking and haggling.

Nobody will provide a quote online, I have spoken to everyone over the phone so far. Looks like it is going to be 1k for this year but should drop significantly next year.
