Don’t settle for one-size-fits-all motorcycle coverage.
You would think most insurers would know a motorcycle is not a car—two tires, no steering wheel, no doors. It’s kind of obvious.
So why do they bundle your motorcycle insurance into your car insurance? Your motorcycle is an entirely different animal needing an entirely different kind of insurance coverage.
For more than 40 years, we have built customized, affordable motorcycle insurance policies for riders just like you. We treat motorcycles like motorcycles because we know motorcycles. And we offer you coverage options that most other insurance carriers don’t even think to provide—such as diminishing deductibles, replacement cost coverage, and money-saving discounts.
When you pick Markel Specialty, your motorcycle policy is made to the exact specifications of who you are, how you ride, and what sort of coverage you need to ensure peace of mind, mile after mile.

Our coverage fills the holes the others leave behind.
If you know there’s a big pothole around the next turn, you’ll avoid it. If your bike is part of a bundled policy, there are big potholes in your coverage, too. And you certainly want to avoid those!
To fill up those holes your current coverage overlooked, you need a motorcycle-exclusive policy from Markel Specialty.

With a motorcycle insurance policy from Markel Specialty, you can get coverage options many other insurers don’t even think to provide. And when we say options, we mean we fully customize your policy to fit you, your bike, your riding style, and your budget.

Extremely easy to deal with“I’ve had Markel motorcycle insurance for the past 7 years and unfortunately had to make my first insurance claim this past month due to hitting a deer. They were extremely easy to deal with. Communication was great throughout the process and they made payment promptly so I could have my bike back together.”

Claim settled fairly and quickly“I've had my motorcycles insured with Markel for +/-10 years now. I recommend them to everyone. Reasonable premiums, and the one time I had a claim the adjuster was outstanding and the claim was settled fairly and quickly.”
