Hungarian Bike Insurance

Hi Euro Troopers!,

Love this forum. After about two months of reading it actually got me to change my mind as I was going to purchase a Aprillia Pegaso Trail. I will soon be laying down some hard earned cash for a new DL650 ABS K'7. I would like to know from any Hungarian Wee riders out there what they think is the best (I have a limited budget so the best low cost insurance) insurance for the bike especially if I plan to tour around Europe next year. Unfortunately my spoken Hungarian is limited so the dear loving wife always has to translate for me so any information before searching would be of a great help to her. Thanks again for this excellent forum.

Cheers Zapsx

Hi Mokusbajusz,

Thank you for the link and info. I will ask the wife to check it out and write the question there. You seem to have been around for awhile in the forum, lots and lots of posts, do you recommend getting the extra insurance or just sticking with the mandatory insurance (posta)? Looked at the pics from your signature link, you must be a Wee master with all the work on your V-strom. Hopefully once I get the bike I will be able to meet a few Wee riders in the area. I am actually from South Africa, been living in Hungary for 2 years but the language has been a major hurdle, but one day I will get it. Really looking forward to riding again as it has been quite a few years.

Cheers Zapsx

there are two types of insurance here in Hungary:
One is mandatory (it is for everybody who ownes a vehicle) and that fully covers damages of the victim's vehicle caused by you (your fault).
The other one is optional (called casco) and covers damages of your vehicle caused by yourself (e.g. by hitting a tree) or in case of a theft or storm, etc).

I agree the Hungarian language is not easy.

You and your wife are welcome for a ride together. Just register on our forum, there are always announced some shorter or longer rides.
To take a fancy to it have a look on our webalbum:

Hi Balázs,

Thank you for the excellent information. I was completely unaware of the differences between the two types of insurance. My biggest concern is having the right insurance to cover theft if the bike is ever stolen. I will be looking into a few insurance companies that have been recommended to me. One that everyone says stay away from is KoBE, don't know anything about them but just thought I would mention it. Hopefully in the near future when I am settled in with the new bike it would be nice going on some rides with the members of v-strom.hu. Not sure if the wife will come with as biking isn't really her thing, but maybe I can change that!! Thanks again.

Cheers Zapsx
