Best Motorcycles for Daring Women

Updated on January 14, 2016

Motorcycles for Daring Women

Looking for the best motorcycles for daring women?

There is a survey that states that 10% of motorcyclists in the states are women. This includes Hollywood stunt women, artists, politicians and ordinary women with extra ordinary stamina like you.

The thing that is common among all these women motorcyclists is that all of them are a littledaring and courageous and women who loves to enjoy the adventures of life.

I think we will begin to see more and more motorcycle manufacturers catering to women riders by building bikes a little lower to the ground and easier to handle, like Harley Davidson that specifically put out the Sportster 883 to give women a Harley product. That has not stopped men from rushing to the dealers to snatch one up for themselves!

If you are an adventure loving woman and you dare to ride motorcycles then here are few of the best motorcycles for daring women like you.

Top 5 Motorcycles For Daring Women

Harley Davidson Sportster XL883L

Harley-Davidson Sportster XL883L is quite popular among female motorcyclists because of its lowest seat that makes it perfect motorcycle for women motorcyclist.

Although the weight is more than what is considered perfect for female motorcyclist it is still a lot easier to handle as compare to other heavy motorcycles like the Suzuki gz250. The look and typical Harley sound makes it popular among women motorcyclists of all ages.

It's a bold and pretty motorcycle for a woman. I tried all these bikes and I have to give this one a big thumbs up!

Honda VFR400R NC30

Honda VFR400R NC30 is considered a best motorcycle for small women. If you liked the 750cc RC30 model but can't buy it because you can't handle it then this one is the most suitable substitute.

Honda VFR400R NC30 is just a small copy 750cc RC30 with the same engine. This motorcycle looks so cool and suits your sporty style. If you want speed instead of a cruiser this is a good choice.

The seat is standard size so small to medium size women can easily sit on it. It is lightweight so you won't have handling problems. I personally don't like leaning on a bike all day but it great for younger girls who don't mind.

Honda Shadow - Honda VT Shadow 125

If you're considering your first motorcycle then you should go with this one. Honda VT Shadow 125 has 125cc engine that makes it a popular motorcycle for starters. Honda VT Shadow 125 is available at affordable price and is durable.

What I've noticed about Honda VT Shadow 125 is... it has good resale value as well. So when you are ready to upgrade to a bigger or better motorcycle later it will resale at decent price. The finished look is excellent.

Overall it's a good motorcycle for women. After shopping and test driving, I actually purchased the 600 model because I wanted something a little larger but the price was still reasonable.

Suzuki Inazuma 250

Suzuki Inazuma 250 is a brand new addition to the streets. This model from Suzuki is stylish and cost effective addition to the Suzuki motorcycles. It is already receiving compliments and excellent reviews from beginner and expert motorcycle riders.

The sleek design and great user-friendly features makes this motorcycle stand out from the crowd.

Brand new Suzuki Inazuma 250 cost you around $3,400. The weight is just about 183 Kilogram which makes it perfect motorcycle for women. I love the look and the feel of this bike. The downside is the high seat. If you are less than 5 feet 4 inches tall o have shorter legs then this is probably not a good option for you. I found the Sukuzci motorcycles overall to be a little heavier and when they lean if you don't have the upper body strength to hold it up, it is going down and possibly you with it.

Kawasaki Ninja 250R

Kawasaki Ninja 250R is a perfect bike for sports bike lovers. Don't go with its solid racetrack bike look. Under this hard look it's pretty cool country road motorcycle. New Kawasaki Ninja 250R may cost you around $4000. You can buy used Kawasaki Ninja 250R, in good condition, for $2,000.

Honda CBR600RR

Stylish Honda CBR600RR won two awards for being a best motorcycle for the launched year. The first model of Honda CBR600RR was released in 2003, since then almost every year Honda launches a new and revised Honda CBR600RR.

The features what makes this motorcycle a perfect motorbike for daring women is its modern and stylish look. Really many women motorcyclist fall for the look. The weight is medium. Average women with motor riding experience can handle it.

I would like to endorse it for tall women motorcyclist. With stylish gears and perfect motorcycle posture you‘ll look smart rider.

Stylish Motorcycle Gear For Women

Riding a motorcycle is like adopting a whole new style. Along with a stylish motorcycle, a collection of cool motorcycle gear designed for women is what makes you look exceptionally good while riding on motorbike. Proper gear offers you protection and that is sometimes more important in riding. Women in spike heals are for photos. Women who actually ride motorcycles should be a little more practical in their choice of footwear and fashion.

The motorcycle gear for women includes gloves, helmet, jackets, boots and goggles.

Breaking the Limit: One Woman's Motorcycle Journey Through North America

Breaking the Limit is one woman's account of riding her motorcycle from New Jersey to Alaska and back. Realizing that years of work and travel in other people's countries made her a stranger in her own, and with an invitation to meet her biological father for the first time, Karen Larsen set out on a fifteen-thousand-mile trip with nothing but her motorcycle and the barest of essentials.

Larsen's journey tests the limits of her own endurance, challenges her long-held beliefs and values, and asks what it means to belong to a family. Through the the fields of Iowa and the deserts of the Southwest, over the Rockies and across Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, Larsen confronts questions of femininity, family, independence, and personal identity.

Her journey speaks to the immense space and over-whelming beauty of North America, as well as to the diversity and vitality of the people she meets along the way. Breaking the Limit invites you to join her as she braces against the wind, trades security for freedom, sacrifices stability for motion, and opens herself up to the vast canopy of a continent.
