What are the State Minimums for Motorcycle Insurance in Michigan?

The state of Michigan is one of the states that requires all motorcycle operators to carry motorcycle insurance. Just like auto insurance, the state has required minimums that must be met by motorcycle operators. Motorcycle operators need to understand what those minimum coverage requirements are and purchase coverage to meet the required minimums. 

Michigan’s New No-fault Law Increased the Required Coverage Limits
Michigan’s new no-fault law became effective July 1st, 2020. This state law changed the minimum coverage amount that is legally required for motorcycle operators. The state requires all motorcycle operators to carry liability coverage. The new coverage amounts required by the state increased. Motorcyclists must currently carry liability insurance in the amounts of $50,000 for bodily injury and a single death, $100,000 for bodily injury and more than one death, and $10,000 for property damage.
