Simply modifying your motorbike can be one of the greatest experiences and can help you enjoy your time on the road even more. It allows you to create a custom look and feel for your ride, improving its performance and enhancing its capabilities.
While modifications can be a great way to make your bike truly yours, they can also come with some risks. If you're going to modify your bike, you must understand how this will affect your motorcycle insurance coverage—and how you may need to supplement it.
Definition of accessory coverage
Accessory coverage, also called Custom Parts and Equipment (CPE) coverage, is a type of insurance coverage that protects any modifications you make to your motorcycle. More technically speaking, the coverage includes any enhancement, accessory, or other equipment that changes the appearance or performance of the motorcycle.
CPE coverage can help keep riders safe from financial losses if their custom parts are stolen or damaged in an accident, natural disaster, or other covered incident. CPE coverage may be purchased as a stand-alone policy or add-on to your existing motorcycle policy.
What is a motorcycle accessory?
A motorcycle accessory is any aftermarket part or product installed on or in a motorcycle to enhance comfort, performance, or style. These products can range from customization options like exhausts, rims, specialized headlights, crash bars or practical enhancements such as integrated audio systems and communication devices.
