Physical research into the factors that affect the risks associated with motorcycle insurance is a relatively new development. IAG has begun a program of motorcycle tip-over tests to determine repair costs and to identify the best design features.

IAG insures more motorcycles than any other insurer in Australia through its retail brands Swann Insurance, NRMA Insurance, SGIO, SGIC and CGU. IAG also operates an insurance joint venture with the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV). 

IAG is the only insurance company in Australia to undertake physical research into the effects of design and engineering on automotive risks. This research gives IAG a voice in international forums that address insurance issues such as safety, security and repair costs.

A Motorcycle Design Guide has been developed in conjunction with RCAR, to minimize damage and facilitate repairs in low speed or stationary falls.
