PEWAUKEE, Wis. - Markel Motorcycle Insurance said it has introduced rating changes on motorcycle insurance, lowering rates available for most riders in Louisiana and Pennsylvania. 

"We look for opportunities to decrease rates when we can, not only because it makes us more competitively priced, but because it's the right thing to do for our customers," said Audrey Hanken, president of Markel Personal Lines.

Markel's rate change became effective on March 21. The new rates will also be applicable to current qualified Markel motorcycle insurance customers, who will see the rate take effect at their next renewal. 

Markel also offers discounts for riders who take safety courses or transfer from other insurers.
