Ontario Motorcycle Insurance – Blacklist Guide

Welcome to the OMI Blacklist Guide. Here we will be adding all the so-called blacklists of sportbikes from any insurance company that issues one. However, these are not the easiest of lists to get, so please bear with us; we’ll add more as we get them.

1) Jevco Surcharge List (2010)

According to Jevco, models over 15 years old (from years 1995 and prior) are considered Standard Models and so not subjected to a surcharge (even if they appear here). Also, Jevco adds tha caveat "Motorcycles with similar performance characteristics as sport models,
but not listed as such, will be considered Sport. The Company reserves
the right to reconsider certain models if the need arises."

All models, except Scarabeo

Tornado TRE

  1. Moved to Nova Scotia from Ontario……just liability for my 2001 Ducati 748s in Ontario – $800. Just bought a 2014 MV Agusta F3 800..full insurance $523.

  2. I wanted to sell my Harley and get something light and strong. They told me today the insurance on a GXR will be 3 times more because some blacklist just from Insu Canada just came out. It is the rider, not the bike you stupid F—‘s. I was in business too. If I could pass my overhead costs to the consumer like the insurance and Hydro companies do, a banana would cost $15 bucks. Too greedy, way too greedy!

    1. I had a 1997 suzuki tl1000s for years. Traded it in for a cruiser. Bought an other one of 2001 vintage and it’s blacklisted. And the insurance on the moto guzzi california just went up 400.$ yes rip off big time

  3. I am suddenly unable to afford the insurance on my 2011 Kawasaki ZX1000, which has just been added to the blacklist. Used to pay $90/month. Now everyone wants $300/month…Liability only.
    Perfect drivers abstract. Not a single claim or accident. 30 years biking experience.
    Interesting that the Z1000 (mechanicaly exactly the same bike, with less plastic bodywork), is not on the blacklist.
    I guess our so-called bureaucrats lack a few brain cells.

    1. And yet how many riders are killed or injured riding Harleys and they are not on the black list! It’s way too easy to blame the bike and not the rider.

      I’m not able to ride my zx-14 because it hasbeme too expensive

    2. Shop around. I recommend the broker Dalton Timmis … they sponsor the bike shows, and they’ve been good to deal with for me.

  4. My TL1000S is not blacklisted by TD insurance but it is at the highest rate, they tell me. It will be interesting to see my bill this spring because I hear from many that it is up 40 to 50%
