Motorcycle State Minimum Requirements

The minimum requirements for liability motorcycle insurance in Indiana are as follows:

  • $25,000 bodily injury coverage for one person in a single accident.
  • $50,000 bodily injury coverage total in a single accident for more than 1 person.
  • $10,000 property damage coverage.

If it is powered by a motor, the engine must have less than two horsepower, a cylinder capacity of less than 50cc, an automatic transmission, and a maximum speed of less than 25 mph on a flat surface.
  • To ride a moped operators must be at least 15 years old, and they must possess a Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) issued license or identification card.
  • Mopeds cannot be operated on sidewalks or Interstate highways.
  • Anyone caught riding a moped in violation of the above provisions can be ticketed and the moped impounded. The fines for these violations begin at $150. 
  • Operators under the age of 18 are required to wear a helmet and eye protection while riding on a moped.
