Editor’s Note: This week, our question is about electric bicycles.

Question: Would electric bicycles be covered under both the property section and the liability section of a homeowners insurance policy (HO 00 03 04 91)?

Analysis: While cars obviously belong on an automobile policy, many smaller vehicles might be covered under a homeowners policy, depending on the size of the vehicle, how it’s used, and where. There’s coverage for small boats, golf carts (under certain circumstances), and some other vehicles. But in the case of e-bikes, which have a motor, would they be considered personal property in a home insurance policy?
