New Insurance Company's to Ireland

Has anybody tried any of the new English companies insuring here? I phoned MCE today for a quote on an R1150GS (I’m 43 with full ncb full licence etc) and after 15 mins on the phone they came in with €201 full comp. but with an excess of €575. To me it seems steep that I would have to shell out that much in the event of a claim, any opinions? The next best I got was CN with€330 and €250 exc.
