Jesus ###king Christ

i used to work in insurance so i know may way around (would be chartered insurer by today's standard but i packed it in 30 years ago) but ###k me no wonder the everyday person is so ###ked off by them

just a straight additional to the policy on multi-bike, in theory, should be easy,

after the usual 'security' questions

them: what's the reg what security does it have

me: its @@20 @@@ with data tag like they all have and immobilizer

them: what make its that

Me: its a ninja 1000 sx UK 2020 model as listed on the Kawasaki web site i pick it up on Wednesday brand new

them: how old is it

me: its brand new

them: has it been insured before

me: no its brand new

them: how many miles will it have on it

me: its brand new so none

them: how long have you owned it

me: i have not its brand new, i pick it up on Wednesday so i need the policy to start midnight Wednesday

them: it'll need to be refereed it takes 48 hrs, so we'll know by Thursday

me: that's no good i need to know for Wednesday

them: i'll escalate it and we'll text you

I feel your pain. What made it worse was the fact that Bennett's review the same model, in Tourer spec, on their website and YouTube channel.
Good luck!

They are all utter muppets, I had a similar problem with mine last year (brand new)

I had the registration number, but it wasnt yet on DVLA database and they had no way of doing the insurance without it being a known registration on the DVLA database and they couldnt do without the registration number.

Talk about stupid, its not like this problem cant have come up before!

Had fun with my insurance too, pretty much same convo as the transcript above, My Tracer 900 2016 model with Bennetts £256 fully Comp, best I could get on my 2020 NINJA was with Kawasaki Insurance £795...with no NCB (haven't ridden for a few years). I re did the quote with 1 year NCB to see what it would likely be next year £305. Expensive first year then reasonably sensible.
