If you ride on a public highway with a motorcycle, by law, you have to have third-party insurance.
This compulsory insurance policy for your motorcycle covers harm you cause to others if you cause an accident, such as personal injury and damage to other vehicles or buildings.
If you also want compensation if your motorcycle's damaged or you yourself are injured, you have to take out additional insurance.
What's covered under third-party insurance?
- Harm you cause to others with your motorcycle. Includes property damage (bodywork, buildings) and bodily damage (death or injury).
- If a vulnerable road user is injured in an accident involving your motorcycle, their injuries are compensated even if you were not in fault.
- Damage to your own motorcycle.
- Bodily injury that you as the rider sustain in a road traffic accident.
- Harm caused by taking part in competitions.
- Damage you cause intentionally.
For even greater security, it's a smart move to add certain types of optional cover to this third-party policy. Note that you're not under any legal requirement to do so, but it may end up saving you a lot of money. Read all about it below.
Add-on cover no. 1: legal assistance insurance
This additional legal assistance cover comes in useful in a good many situations:
- you get into a disagreement with the authorities about registering your motorcycle
- your defence costs if you're prosecuted for a road traffic offence such as speeding or running a red light
- claims against the manufacturer of your motorcycle
In these cases, legal support and assistance are no luxury. We always try for an out-of-court settlement. If that doesn't work, KBC Brussels will recommend a lawyer to represent you in court. You can also instruct counsel of your own choice. We pay the costs of the court proceedings up to a maximum of 100 000 euros.
What's covered under Legal Assistance insurance?
- If someone other than you caused you harm, we'll help you claim damages.
- Legal assistance for contract disputes, such as when buying your motorcycle or getting it repaired.
- Legal help in disputes with government agencies in connection with matters such as registering your vehicle, suspension of your driving licence and periodic inspections.

Add-on cover no. 2: partial comprehensive insurance
If you want even better protection for your motorcycle, you can count on KBC Brussels. Our Partial Comprehensive Insurance also covers your vehicle against fire damage. Plus, you have added cover against theft and attempted theft. That's very useful, especially if you park your motorcycle in the street at night.
