Supermoto bikes are as comfortable on tarmac as they are in the dirt. With road-racing tires mounted to a motocross chassis, they represent an epic and ingenious cross-over sport that began with the Superbikers series in the 1970’s, and surged into nationwide popularity in 2003 with creation of the AMA Supermoto and ESPN XGames Supermoto Championships.

Insuring a Supermoto
Luckily, supermoto insurance for both street-legal and track-only supermotards is typically less expensive than insuring a modern 600cc or 1000cc sportbike. With only a single cylinder, most supermotos have less horsepower than your average inline-four supersport or superbike, which translates to lower insurance rates. If you have a “street ‘tard,” then carrying your state’s minimum liability coverage is mandatory unless you live in MT, FL, or WA state. For track-specific bikes, insurance against damage, theft, and liability is still recommended. Many of the larger insurers have powersports departments which will insure non-street-legal machines.
