Last year, SGI launched the world’s first motorcycle usage-based insurance (telematics) pilot program to learn more about rider driving habits; and this year, the pilot is being extended.

Some insurers have started using telematics devices in vehicles to record driving information, such as speed, braking, mileage and driving location, in order to determine the risk of a claim associated with a vehicle. SGI is extending this pilot program to gain further insight into whether this technology could be effective for motorcycles.

The ultimate goal of SGI’s motorcycle pilot program is safer roads with fewer injuries and fatalities.
