Home > Insurance Blog > What is an autocycle?
Are you on the hunt for a new ride that sets you apart from the crowd? If you want the comfort and control of an automobile while enjoying the open-air sensation of a motorcycle, an autocycle may be a perfect fit.
An autocycle is a mix between a car and motorcycle. While the autocycle is technically classified as a type of motorcycle, you’ll see it’s very different than the typical motorcycle that comes to mind.
For example, autocycles:
Autocycles are very customizable, so depending on what you’re looking for, there’s likely an autocycle out there for you.
Yes, you do need a driver’s license to legally operate an autocycle since it’s similar to an automobile. Some states may require a motorcycle license. This requirement may vary depending on where you live and what type of autocycle you own, so be sure to check your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles website to learn more.
When you plan for autocycle safety, it helps to think and gear up like a motorcyclist. Make sure you’ve got gloves, pants, long sleeves, glasses, and helmets—which are also required by most states. The autocycle also comes equipped with a safety restraint system. Even if your state doesn’t require using the safety belt, we urge riders to comply with the manufacturer’s suggestions for safe operation.
Since autocycles are classified by most states as motorcycles, you can drive an autocycle anywhere you would ride a motorcycle—as long as you’re following your state’s insurance, licensing, and safety requirements.
For your safety and the safety of any potential passengers, we recommend following the manufacturer’s guidelines on this one. Some autocycles are only built for one person, while some are built for two people. Make sure you know your autocycle’s limits to help ensure the safety of everyone in the vehicle.
Depending on the state you live in, you may be required to insure your autocycle. The type of insurance will also depend on what type of autocycle you have. If you have an autocycle that looks similar to a traditional motorcycle with open-air and handlebar controls, then you’re likely going to need motorcycle insurance. Some autocycles are enclosed and look similar to a car. In that case, your state may require that you have auto insurance to drive your autocycle.
