Female-Friendly Motorcycles

Female riders make up around 9% of riders, and it’s growing all the time. Clearly all females can ride all bikes, as they’re not gender specific but if you’re new to biking and want some motorcycle recommendations, we’ve put together a few.

Honda Shadow Spirit 750 C2

The Honda Shadow is a great motorcycle for all and it doesn’t matter how much experience you’ve got riding. The comfortable cruiser style with a low seat means it’s popular with lots of women bikers because of its accessibility.

Often suggested for new riders due to its lighter weight letting you negotiate with the road. A great bike to work on increasing your confidence.

Kawasaki Ninja 250/300

Both these models are a good choice for biker chicks looking for a sports styled bike, though some have found the 250cc and the 300cc versions difficult to ride than other choices as they have a higher seat height. The smaller engine is good for beginners as these bikes have all the looks but not a lot of power.

Harley-Davidson Street Glide

Most women bikers are riding middleweight motorbikes and the Street Glide is a good choice with its low slung, sleek styling. The standard seat height can easily be lowered through seat and suspension modifications and this motorcycle offers a great deal of comfort while riding.

Yamaha R6

You might quickly think that the Yamaha R6 is only for the track, but it’s really pretty good on roads too. The 599cc, 133 bhp machine is uncomplicated when it comes to steering, gear changes, and stability. It’s no wonder that it’s so easy to fall in love with this one. Yamaha are famous for their remarkable technology and the R6 has got the complete package, with a lot of features from Yamaha’s MotoGP bikes such as the chassis and suspension.
