what our customers say


My last insurance company was so complicated. I love how easy and accessible Esurance is. I can print what I need when I need it, and the customer service is the best I've ever experienced.

— Paul, Florida


I filed a claim online and was called within 30 minutes. My rep was very helpful and informative — but most of all she was human. It made an odd situation easy to work through.

— Jordan, Massachusetts


You guys get it and you rock! I love dealing with efficient companies without all of the red tape and corporate stuffiness! Thank you Esurance for being awesome and providing a good service.

— Kristoffer, South Carolina

Money-saving benefit of Esurance motorcycle coverage

At Esurance, we strive to provide peace of mind for our Illinois motorcyclists. That's why if you have a claim under $500, we won't increase your premium. Accidents may happen, but price jumps don't have to. So go ahead and use your money for something worthwhile (like that premium Italian beef you've been eyeing).

required illinois motorcycle insurance coverages

Illinoisans must have liability insurance to legally ride a motorcycle in the state. Liability insurance helps cover others' medical bills and property damage if you're ever at fault in an accident. You should have at least the following limits:

  • $20,000 of bodily injury liability per person
  • $40,000 of bodily injury liability per incident
  • $15,000 of property damage liability per incident

Of course, these are just the bare requirements. Opt for as much coverage as you feel you need when you buy motorcycle insurance in Illinois from Esurance.

optional motorcycle insurance coverages

On top of basic coverages, riders in the Prairie State can choose from additional options that provide more financial protection and peace of mind in the event of a claim.

New motorcycle protection

Got a brand-new bike? New motorcycle protection coverage pays the MSRP on a current-year bike of the same make and model if your ride's ever totaled (cue that sigh of relief).

Trip interruption coverage

If your bike breaks down on a long road trip, get trip interruption coverage and we'll cover:

  • $100 for lodging
  • $50 for alternate transportation
  • $50 for food

Yep, that's per day until your bike is fixed (up to $500 per incident).

Collision coverage

Esurance motorcycle collision coverage helps repair or replace your vehicle, riding leathers, and other apparel (up to $500 per helmet) if you run into a vehicle, tree, building, or other object.

Comprehensive coverage

Damage doesn't always come from a collision. So it pays to protect your bike from risks like vandalism, theft, or those infamous Midwestern tornadoes.

Towing and labor

We'll cover up to $100 if you need a tow to the nearest qualified repair facility.

Optional equipment coverage

Did you commemorate the last Stanley Cup with a brand-new Blackhawks saddlebag? (We thought so.) To protect your bike's cool accessories, just add comprehensive coverage and you'll get a whopping $3,000 in optional equipment coverage free. And if you need more, you can add up to $30,000 to cover your custom engine, sidecar, or practically anything else you add.

simple policy management

Our bike insurance comes with a one-year policy term. You can easily manage this policy (and any others you have with us) online, plus pay your premium however it's easiest for you:

  • Monthly
  • 2 installments
  • 4 installments
  • Pay all up front (you could save up to 13 percent with the Paid-in-Full discount)

flexible coverage for all your bikes

Drive something besides a traditional motorcycle? No problem! Esurance motorcycle coverage lets you protect a wide array of vehicles, including:

  • Dirt and off-road bikes
  • Scooters and mopeds
  • ATVs and UTVs
  • Snowmobiles
  • Golf carts
  • Segways (that's right, Segways!)
