Motorcycle expenses in CH

Can anyone go through motorcycle costs in CH?

Like for instance driver license fee, annual taxes, insurance, parking...etc.

Thanks.

Re: Motorcycle expenses in CH

it's about the same as for a car but with generally lower amounts for parking, fuel, insurance, road tax and depreciation

Is there any difference between bikes and scooters?

I thought insurance would be significantly lower due to low crime

Re: Motorcycle expenses in CH

It depends on engine size, power, weight, number of seats, new cost, etc.

Also, the type of insurance, what your bonus percentage is, etc.

Re: Motorcycle expenses in CH

Add a few bucks for jacket, helmet, gloves at least.

And the cost of a plan B if you won't ride in the rain.

What types of insurances are there Tom?

Also can you give some figures from your bike?

Do you ride regularly, what you got there in the pic
