High Risk

A 25-year-old student renting in central London who's been riding for less than two years. Does 8000 miles each year, is yet to build up any no claims bonus and already has a speeding conviction.

2011 model = no quote

Average Risk

35, living in suburbia, covering 10,000 miles a year on a bike, this rider has built up three year's NCB, is an accountant, yet doesn't own his own house and keeps his bike on the driveway.

2006 model = £337
2011 model = £445

Low Risk

50, lives in a rural area, no additional riders on his policy, and an annual mileage of 2000. With a garage, five year's NCB, and an IAM test pass, he's a very attractive motorbike insurance proposition.
