Default Motorbike Insurance - Penang

I bought a motorbike 1 year ago and received insurance as part of that transaction. I'm now due to either renew that insurance or take out another policy.

Does anyone have suggestions for motorbike insurance in Penang that can be done online ? Thanks.

When renewing my car insurance I sent an email to the head office of the insurance company. From then on was the entire process done through email exchange. Technically speaking not online, but I didn't have to visit an office.

Not an answer just a point.
My motor cycle licence requires renewal at the post office every year, so I just kill two birds with one stone and get them both done at the same time.
I might be able to get it cheaper elsewhere, but this just suits me fine.

Just go to the insurance office that is part of the Taycon motorcycle shop which is opposite the state mosque.

Take all your details and 10 mins later you will have insurance.

I've got a spare 5 minutes so ... got a car in UK and another in Singapore.

Just renewed UK insurance. I was with Saga and it cost me £120 for last year comprehensive.
Renewal note from Saga states they want £165 for this coming year. That's what loyalty does for you with insurance in the UK.
I check with a comparison site and can get comprehensive for £75 with the AA.

Phone Saga and ask them to match it. The best they can do is £140. They have matched previously. Anyway I tell Saga I'm off. Guy says of course the AA is only a quote and when you put your full details in it will rise substantially. Never mind I say I'm off.
Do the needful with the AA. Quote stays the same £75.

No comparison sites in Singapore or Malaysia. In Singapore I stay with AIG after checking other insurers by phone. Can't remember how much maybe S$1000.

Thanks everyone for the suggestion, none of which I had thought of.

I was driving past the Mosque today so dropped into the Taycon motorcycle shop as "Owned" suggested and was able to do the whole thing in 10 minutes .... all quick and simple.
