Octo Rider 1: Pay-As-You-Ride Motorcycle Insurance

Posted 02:00:00 PM

Octo logo
Octo Open Octo in a new window is a company that has been running telemetric solutions for car, fleet management and more importantly, for insurance companies for the last 10 years or so. Started in 2002 in Italy, they have grown over the last 10 years all over Europe, but so far only for the car industry.

But that has changed last month. Octo Rider 1 is a package that has been introduced in Europe, notably Spain, and it is targeted towards motorcycles.

Octo Rider 1 is an electronics package that gets installed on your motorcycle, using its own batteries. It has a range of sensors; movement, GPS, etc and it communicates with its owner. But the owner is not you, the rider. It's the insurance company (or fleet management, but there aren't that many for motorcycles) who receives the telemetric data. So you can not buy this product as an individual.

Octo Rider 1

And that is because the insurance company will have made a deal with you on your motorcycle's insurance. Depending on the insurance company, it could be the more miles you ride, the more you need to pay. Or you only pay when you use it. In other words, if you have a bike sitting in the garage that you don't use that much, you could make a good deal with this. Great for vintage bike owner, or people who have several motorcycles in the garage.

The Octo Rider 1 is also a localization box, i.e., if your motorcycle gets stolen, the box will notify the insurance company where the bike is, and they can send in the cavalry to get your bike back.

So unless you have some privacy concerns, this may be a good solution to reducing your monthly bills.

I'd guess this is really why motorcycle riders are not welcome at hairdressers. It's a bit tough on their scissors...
