Swifty say they're partnering with eavi for insurance. The eavi website currently says it's "coming soon", so you'd probably want to hold off until you can be sure it's insurable.

Looks like an interesting product, potentially a lot of fun to ride, hopefully there will be a full review of it. I'm curious how it handles, particularly under heavy braking.

I dont see how this product makes sense without either a full service company providing servicing, tax and insurance or a really strong partnership of companies doing so...

 

Can Swifty help with insurance?

The only problem now will be to find an insurance company willing to insure it.
