Motor bike insurance is insurance purchased for motored vehicles that are two wheeled and not a trike or a quad.

Every policy is usually subject to the terms and conditions of the policy which could differ from one insurance company to another.

Insurance premiums are mandated by the government or determined by the insurance company in accordance with the regulations set by the government.
