Overall Rating: 9.2 / 10 (Excellent)

Progressive does an excellent job of providing motorcycle owners coverage against accidents and road emergencies through its inclusive insurance policy. Several built-in features plus a good deal of additional options make the company's coverage hard to beat. Its rates are also highly competitive thanks to its remarkable number and variety of discounts for qualifying customers. Outstanding financial ratings and a comprehensive list of the vehicles it covers round out the insurance, which we recommend for any motorcycle looking to protect their vehicle.

Progressive Coverage and Benefits

Coverage and Benefits - 9 / 10

Progressive provides a broad range of unique insurance policies for a wide variety of motorcycles, including custom, classic, scooters, mopeds, and more. Its built-in benefits include full replacement cost and no depreciation, accessories and custom parts or equipment, small and large accident forgiveness, and coverage for original equipment manufacturer parts. These built-in features provide motorcyclists additional peace of mind knowing they'll be able to obtain the exact amount needed to re-customize or restore their bikes. The company's accident forgiveness benefit is another excellent coverage automatically offered to all policyholders, which keeps customers' premiums from increasing in the event of a claim that costs $500 or less and doesn't count the first accident for those who remain claim free for four consecutive years.

On Trustpilot, its score is a poor 4.7, but has only received 6 reviews and has yet to claim the page.

Best decision I could have made. They make it so easy to pay, so easy to obtain information and always have great discounts. I couldn't ask for anything better when it comes to Progressive for my motorcycle. Plus, they take good care of me.

Progressive is one of the best insurance companies I've ever dealt with. Not only do they provide great rates, but they also work with you to get you the best rate possible. Every time I renew my policy with them, there are always more discounts that I receive for being a great driver. I've been with them since I had my first car and they have been nothing but good to me. I will stay with them for as along as I can!
