I've recently passed my A2 license (restricted to 125cc)
I wanted to get a Yamaha YZF 125
Insurance quotes are like £800+?
Friends of mine have paid about £400?

Tips and Help?
Cheers

Maybe ask who your friends took out insurance with?

If you want to feel better, get a quote for car insurance.

Wouldn't that be too easy?

try wickedquotes

Third party £450? Been quoted. Sensible? The bikes £1900 which isn't much really. I know car quotes are a bomb! But most people have said they've always gone 3rd party :S

Insurance quotes have very little to do with vehicle value.Paying out £10,000 for a written off car is nothing for an insurance company ,the problems come when they have to pay out hundreds of thousands for people who have been maimed, Thats why insurance is expensive for newer drivers / riders.

So would it be appropriate to go with Third party? and my friend said that he has his dad as first driver? but dad hasn't got a license or CBT? so I asked my friend and he goes yeah if your saying that dad will get CBT next week or something? If thats like illegal or bogus then sod that?

it helps if you own a house are married have a job are older and do less miles and have the bike in your garden or shed locked away.

That seems ridiculously expensive... I'm 19, 1 years NCB (2 now) and insurance was £100 for my CG125. Cheappp!

If you have done your A2 you are not restricted to 125cc but you restricted to 33bhp. You can have any bike at any cc but you'll need to put a restriction kit to make it 33bhp.

Try Rampdale mate,I have my 1st insurance with them for a 125 costs £252 or very close to that price.
#17

Yeh I have a restricted r6 lol.. It's not as fast as normal(ovbiously) but still quite nippy on acceleration and top speed is meant to be about 90..

You could always get a 400cc.. They are kind of in the middle of big bikes and 125s.. or a 250 even.. they are usually under 33bhp as standard.

What 250 bikes that look like super bikes? and how much do you pay for insurance? etc?

There's different ways of restricting bikes, some which work better than others depending on how popular the bike is for restricting. I've never had a restricted license so I don't know all the various options but from reading the Suzuki forums the likes of the SV650 is a good bike for restricting as it still rides well with the restrictor in place.

Any bike I've tried thats been restricted has been okay in riding.

The sv650 is good restricted because it is a decent acceleration/torque bike whereas my r6 is quite poor in accel but over 10k rpm and it starts to get mad however, the restriction kit makes my bike stop at about 8k rpm so doesn't get to there.

An sv650 is a great all round bike to get as a first bike IMO.. Can get them cheap and they are more forgiving than sports bikes.
