Markel Motorcycle Insurance Summary

Markel does a good job in providing motorcycle specific coverage options. It gives motorcycle owners the same level of collision and comprehensive protection seen in auto insurance policies. However, discount options seem to be on the lean side compared to other services. Markel is one of the few carriers who offer a diminishing deductible program - reducing your deductible by 25% each accident-free policy term. Mechanical breakdown and emergency roadside assistance ensures policyholders can access help in case of an emergency.
