Just got my renewal from ramasis, who were the cheapest for me last year at 1356 for my h2 and my Vmax. This year its 1340!!! Is that a joke? I had a quick look on a comparison site and dropped it to 550 for the h2 and 150 for the max. I'm awaiting a return call from ramasis but to be honest I'm not holding on to hope with them.

Who is everyone else using?

Oh yes, uk

Went from 1k to about £600 with Ramasis for just the H2.

Maybe it the Vmax hold the price up ;)

Nah, I did a quick comparison check and for some reason ramasis gone crazy. Everyone else is around 550 for h2 and 150 for Vmax and that's on seperate policies so should be cheaper with them on the same one. Nevermind, I'll just have to switch insurers. Just seems bizarre to me that's all:)

Mine was £780 with Ramasis when new, valued at 22k. Did you guys drop the value in the second year to get those cheaper prices? I have full no claims, 48 years old, license for 25 years,no accidents etc... crazy expensive.

For all the UK guys looking to renew insurance, I just got insured (second year) for £424 including leathers, helmet, breakdown recover, legal cover & personal injury. 3000 miles with £800 excess. Decent saving on last year, I stayed with Ramasis but they had to price match to keep me... More companies covering the H2 now so easier to shop around.

Mine's due for renewal in October. It'll be interesting to see if Carole Nash offer a competitive quote. They are a broker so they ought to shop around for me, I know in previous years with other bikes they've done that.

Good effort Rob, you beat me by £75, mine could have been cheaper but I added all the extras, still a heavy excess though...
Let us know Bob, interested to see if the trend is more competitive prices.
PS I'm 48 and live in Derbyshire, I guess post codes impact prices

Ramasis rip off

I absolutely refuse to entertain a "price match " . They were prepared to overcharge you but you made all the effort to go through other quotes involving your time and effort with other companies that gave you a better price and all Ramasis had to do was match their price to keep you !!!
I get this **** from the four heating oil companies I call . They ask what price did they give you and we will match it .
My reply to all of them is the same , I tell them I call all the local suppliers and that they need to give me their best price and refuse to tell them what the others have quoted unless they come in higher , then they either better it or lose my custom until next time . I'm not interested in them matching a quote after I've done all the work .

I was with Carol nash until I got the H2 and they could not insure the bike in 2016 or March this year. I was happy with them so hope they insure the H2 next year or give a competitive quote

My decision wasn't as simple as a price match, the two companies that came in lowest after my search were both given utterly shocking ratings online and mostly insure the scooter teens... I also wanted to consider the standard of cover, underwriter and track record of the insurers. Not hard to find ratings online.
Granted, Ramasis were only fractionally better rated but Kawasaki pin their reputation to them so I'm happy with my decision.

That's fair enough Lamf1969 , your premium is ok but £850 excess is err well excessive.
Insurance companies take full advantage of the fact that we are different ages , live in different houses in different areas with varying history and experience and it's easy to lose half a day on the phone going through the same questions over and over only to be given a outrageous quote.
(This was my experience with Ramasis ) Sounds like myself and H2vmax had the same experience.

Got my renewal through

Bit of bargaining and got it down to £350 from £590 :)

Rob
I'm impressed with this price Rob, unless you are around 90 years old ,live in the Outer Hebrides and have stabilisers fitted to the rear spindle ? Oh and promise not to do over one hundred miles in a year .
May I ask who its with ?

Thats with Ramasis

I'm 56, full ncb, live in rural(ish) midlands , price includes
Leathers and helmet cover
Legal cover
AA roadside assist
Mileage up to 3000 per year
£800 access

When I first inquired about the H2 for insurance the only insurance I could get was from Kawasaki, sorry, I did have one other quote but £7603 was a tad to much;)

This year there are more willing to insure the bike, so, I did a quick comparison site, had 3 good prices from reputable companies, called Ramasis and said, I'm happy to stay with them but !!!! and they not only matched but slightly bettered the price:)
