Best motorcycle insurance for most people: Nationwide
Nationwide is our recommendation as the best overall motorcycle insurer in Kansas. Its rates were the lowest we found statewide, at just $378 per year — 29% less than the state average.
We also found Nationwide's coverage to be well-rated. It has a National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) complaint index of just 0.53. That means it received only 53% as many complaints as you'd expect, given its size, and suggests Nationwide customers are usually satisfied with their service.
Finally, Nationwide's coverage options are good, but not excellent. Beyond basic coverages like liability, collision and comprehensive, it offers coverage for custom equipment and guaranteed OEM parts. However, it lacks other useful protections, like replacement cost coverage and rental reimbursement.
Best customer service: Progressive
For riders who prioritize highly rated service over low prices, Progressive is a great option. Its customer service was second to none in Kansas. It has a complaint index of 0.39, meaning it received only 39% as many complaints as a typical company, when adjusted for size. This is the best rating among all the companies we considered, and much lower than the national average of 1.00.
Progressive also has a wide range of coverage options — among the best we found in the state. It offers protections like replacement cost coverage for new bikes, an OEM parts guarantee and trip interruption protection.
However, Progressive was also the second-most-expensive insurer in Kansas, at an average price of $634 per year. That's 19% more than the state average, and $256 more than our top pick, Nationwide.
Best for commuters: Dairyland
Dairyland is our top pick in Kansas for people who depend on their motorcycles for daily commuting, and who may not have another vehicle.
Dairyland is a specialty insurer that works with drivers and riders who aren't able to get the coverage they need elsewhere. As such, they have a few coverage options that more mainstream insurers might lack.
Most importantly, it's one of the only insurers that offers rental reimbursement — which pays for a rental vehicle if your motorcycle is being repaired after a crash.
It also offers replacement cost coverage, roadside assistance and coverage for special equipment.
However, Dairyland's rates are slightly more expensive than average in Kansas. The typical price is $543, $10 more than average statewide.
Additionally, Dairyland receives a lot of complaints, suggesting customers are often dissatisfied with their experience. Its NAIC complaint index is 2.69, meaning it received 169% more complaints as a typical insurer, when adjusted for size.
Best-rated Kansas motorcycle insurers
You count on your insurer to be there when you need it, so it's crucial to have one that's dependable. We've found that Progressive and Nationwide have the best-rated customer service in Kansas, based on their NAIC complaint indexes and AM Best financial strength ratings.
The NAIC Complaint Index compares a company's number of complaints with its share of the market. Lower numbers indicate better performance, and the average score is 1.0. A company with a better AM Best letter grade is in a better position to pay out claims, even in tough economic conditions.
Kansas motorcycle insurance cost by city
The cost of motorcycle insurance will vary based on where you live. You might pay more for motorcycle insurance if you live in an area with a lot of motorcycle theft or a place with poorly-maintained roads, leading to more accidents.
