2010 Kawi ZX-14

So they have one on the floor of my local dealer and I have really been kicking the idea around of picking it up. Well maybe I'm just itchy for a new bike of some sort.

Anyway I took the next step today and checked with my insurance guy (when you're old and married you do that kind of thing).

The Kawi ZX-14 is $800 a year MORE than the insurance on my 07 919 keeping all the same coverage that I have now.

Seems a little steep to insure to me. Maybe back to the drawing board.... I wonder what a BMW K1300S cost a month to insure.

My Kaw dealer stop ordering the big sport bikes.

People come in, put a deposit down, & back out the next day when they check insurance.

That's $66/month more.
Check with different insurance companies - some might give you a better deal.

With State Farm, they charge by displacement of the bike period.

Get an 07 for half what a new one costs and then don't put full coverage on it.

My 09 K1300S through Foremost is ~ $ 600...Fire Theft Comp & collision with a $500 deductable + my 79 H-D with basic coverage.

Never pick a fight with an old man..if he's too tired to fight, he'll just shoot you.

Oh deductible $500. Insurance from Country last fall was $240/year same coverage. Thought that was high so I shopped this spring.

yea check state farm, my gsxr 1000 and my gsxr 1100 are in the 500 a year range. not only displacement but age, at one point my old 1100 was at 90 bucks a year............katrina, 9/11, and the stockmarket crash has affected things though, i check around and state farm is still lower. id go with a 08 or newer 14 i think they are a smidge better than the 06/07 version's. i rode a 08 through the dragon and was very impressed for a big girl you can hustle her around nicely and it had the best brakes ive seen on the big bikes, they where very very nice easily hauling all that wieght down 1 finger, and comfy all day
