What is motorcycle insurance?

Motorcycle insurance helps protect you and your motorcycle if you're in an accident. In general, motorcycle insurance can help pay for damages and/or injuries you may cause due to an at-fault accident. These Liability Coverages are required in most states, but the amount needed can vary.

You can also get Collision Coverage to help pay for damage to your motorcycle from hitting another vehicle or object. See how much you could save on motorcycle insurance with Liberty Mutual when you get a customized policy, so you only pay for what you need.
