Top Five sporty 600 Insurance Bargains

1 of 5

We’ve researched insurance costs for the most popular sporty 600’s on MCN Compare to bring you the cheapest five to insure. MCN Compare brings together top insurance brokers to make sure you aren’t paying over the odds to insure your bike. Here are the top five insurance bargains…


1. Honda CBR 600 F (1995-1996)

The Honda CBR600F was, and remains, a brilliant motorcycle with real power and excitement but with the added practicalities to make it a contender for just about anyone’s garage.


Quote: £90.96 Total Excess: £550 Model quoted: 1996 (value £1595)


2. Suzuki GSX-R600 (1996-2000)

A raw, involving, lunatic on wheels. The more throttle-happy you are with it, the more the Suzuki GSX-R600 will thrill. Virtually dead low down, wake it up at higher revs and you’ll be clinging on for dear life. Not as finely honed as today’s Suzuki GSX-R600 but, for some, that just adds to the manic appeal. Ridiculous, dangerous fun.


Quote: £92.06 Total Excess: £650 Model Quoted: 1996 (value £1375)


3. Kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja (1995-1997)

Kawasaki’s F-series ZX-6R was, in its day, a serious contender to the middleweight crown of Honda’s CBR600. It can still raise a smile it can feel harsh and crude when compared with todays metal but is definitely worth a look if buying on a budget.


Quote: £92.06 Total Excess: £650 Model Quoted: 1996 (value £1375)


4. Yamaha YZF-R6 (1998-2003)

Hardcore, know the score. The Yamaha YZF-R6 is a sexy uber-capable track bike that works on the road too. It caught the 600 race rep class napping and nothing came close until Suzuki launched its 2001 GSX-R600 – that’s a long time to rule the 600 roost and shows just how good the original Yamaha YZF-R6 was.


Quote: £92.09 Total Excess: £650 Model Quoted: 1998 (value £1850)


5. Honda CBR 600 RR (2003-2004)

Barely related to the long-running all-round Honda CBR600F – the Honda CBR600RR is a track biased missile – and an excellent one. On the road, the ‘F’ version is a better bet for most with a more roomy riding position, stable handling and a less revvy engine but get the Honda CBR600RR on the track and it’s in its element.


Quote: £95.29 Total Excess: £550 Model Quoted: 2003 (value £2875)


All quotes shown are for a fictitious 45-year-old retail manager from East Yorkshire who has been riding since 1997 and has five years no-claims bonus. Quotes are for comprehensive cover for social, domestic and pleasure use only with an annual mileage of 3000-3999 miles. The bike is stored in a locked garage and protected by an approved chain and Datatag marking kit. Prices sourced in July 2015. The only changes made between searches are to the identity of the bike and its value.
