What’s the history behind Triumph bikes?
Before deciding on your Triumph motorcycle insurance, why not learn a bit more about the manufacturer’s origins?
From small beginnings in 1902 with the No. 1 Minerva engine to their production of bikes for the military in both World Wars, Triumph has been a British legend from the start.
They’re continuing to take on the world, impressing the US with their take on the iconic cruiser and expanding manufacturing with a launch in India.
How do you choose when it comes to modern Triumph bikes? There’s the newer Tiger Explorer, with its 1215cc shaft driven engine, and the majorly updated 675cc Street Triple just to start with. New models in 2018 include the Bonneville Speedmaster which has a more laid-back cruiser style than the Bonneville T120, the Bonneville Bobber and Bobber Black and the updated Speed Triple S and RS.
What are the policy options for Triumph motorcycle insurance?
The cover you choose depends on your bike and your needs. You will need to decide if you want comprehensive Triumph motorcycle insurance or just third party or third party fire and theft. But comprehensive isn't always the most expensive so it is worth comparing the options. You should also consider how you are going to use your Triumph, is it for everyday commuting or just taking to the open road at the weekend for pleasure.
Once you've decided on your minimum cover needs, you can start to consider the options you'd like to include. Because there can be big differences between what insurance providers include as standard or make an add-on to a policy, it's worth checking carefully what's covered in a policy. Here are some possible options you might want to consider when getting a quote:
- Breakdown cover – if your bike breaks down, you’ll be covered for roadside assistance
- Legal expenses insurance – if you and your bike are involved in an accident, or if a driver makes a claim against you, this insurance could cover all or some of the legal costs
- No claims discount – you can get a discount on your insurance for every year you don’t make a claim. Protecting your no claims bonus means you can get to keep it, even if you have to make one or two claims. But remember this doesn't mean your premium definitely won't increase after an accident.
- Personal accident cover – if you’re in an accident, this could give you a payout
- Helmet and leathers cover – gear is expensive, so if you have to replace it after an accident, this could help offset the costs.
