Honda’s CBR125R, which is aimed at 17 year-old learner riders, is the UK’s third best-selling motorcycle and 125cc machines account for 21% of searches on one of the UK’s biggest motorcycle web sites.
However, insurance can be a major barrier for young riders, often costing more than the vehicle itself. ChoiceQuote pioneered online insurance for riders in the late 1990’s, specialising in 50-125ccc scooters and lightweight motorcycles. Now the Company has developed a range of policies aimed specifically at younger riders on 50-125cc bikes.
With prices starting at £182 for 16 year-olds and £264 for 17 year-olds*, ChoiceQuote believe that this new scheme could encourage many young riders to stay on two wheels, as there is strong anecdotal evidence that many give up riding after a year, due to the high cost of premium renewal.
