Starting out in 1926 as a radio manufacturer, the Ducati family entered the bike world with motorised bicycles in the 1950s. Soon expanding its range to motorcycles, Ducati made its mark with the Mach 1, the fastest 250cc road bike available at the time. Ducati is now known for its high-performance machines favoured by Superbike World Championship winners.

When you take out Ducati insurance, there are three standard levels of cover available to you:
- Third-party: This form of Ducati insurance will only cover you for any damage to a third party’s property or vehicle.
- Third-party, fire and theft: This type of policy protects you if your bike is stolen or suffers fire damage, as well as offering cover against damage to a third party.
- Comprehensive: The greatest level of protection. This form of Ducati bike insurance covers you for all of the above, plus any accidental damage to your machine.
There are some instances which will invalidate your Ducati bike insurance, and it’s important that you’re aware of what these are so that you can take to the road with complete confidence and clarity. For example, you will not be covered for any damage, loss, injury or accident that happens as a result of:
- The bike being ridden by someone without the appropriate licence
- The bike being in the charge of someone who is not entitled to ride it under the certificate of insurance
- The bike being used to carry goods or passengers in a way that will impact its safe riding
The above are only some examples of events which could invalidate your Ducati motorbike insurance. For a full list of exclusions, please be sure to check your policy wording.
Unfortunately, it’s difficult for us to provide you with a simple answer to this question, as there are many factors that can affect the price of your premium. How much you pay for your Ducati insurance will depend on the age and model of the bike, the level of cover you choose and the security measures you have in place, among other things.

How can I lower the cost of my Ducati bike insurance?
You don’t need us to tell you that a Ducati is a premium machine. But that doesn’t mean you have to pay premium prices for your cover. There are a few things you can do that might help you reduce the cost of your Ducati insurance:
- Keep your policy in place all year round to help you build up your no-claims discount
- When not out on the road, lock your bike up in a secure location such as a shed or garage
- Be sure to calculate your mileage accurately by reviewing previous MOT records
- Take additional courses to improve your riding, as some insurers offer discounts to those with extra training
