I am the last person on earth who would support government intervention in anything. But insurance companies are privately owned. High powered sport bikes present a tremendous risk to them, and those who ride them already pay a fortune in insurance. I can see no reason why any sane person would even want to ride such bikes on the road, unless they intend to ride illegally and irresponsibly. Check this out
You don't see cruiser or touring bike riders riding like this. Sport bike riders are bringing it on themselves. I sure wouldn't mind seeing insurance rates on these things go way up, so the (already low) insurance rates on my cruiser, dual sport bike, and 3 scooters could go down even more.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
