Ladies Looking To Boost Their Confidence Find The Answer In Motorcycles

Written by

woman riderIf you’ve ever wondered whether the right bike can influence your well-bring, then take note of a study that shows that women who ride their own motorcycles are noticeably happier — in their relationships, in the bedroom, and in life overall — than women who don't ride.

The happiness-to-motorcycle study, conducted by Kelton and commissioned by bike retailer Harley-Davidson, conducted interviews with 1,013 adult female riders and 1,016 adult female non-riders, and shows some remarkable insight: that riding a motorcycle greatly improves women's feelings of self-worth. Some of the statistics involved include the following:

• More than twice as many motorcycle owners always feel happy (37% of riders vs. 16% of non-riders)

• Nearly four times as many motorcycle owners always feel sexy (27% of riders vs. 7% of non-riders)

• Nearly twice as many motorcycle owners always feel confident (35% of riders compared to 18% of non-riders)

If you are interested in boosting your self-confidence, consider one of the many female-friendly bike models available for purchase. And if you’re worried about price-points, the study notes happiness upticks at every price-point, so you can expect a confidence boost regardless of whether you’re buying a new Ducati or a used BMW motorcycle — the only thing that matters is having one! Below you’ll find a list of popular models for any budget.

Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 SuperLow

In 2011 Harley introduced the 883 SuperLow, which replaced the previous XL 883L — where the L stands for Low. Both are hugely popular among women riders. These models have long been Harley’s entry-level model, and because Harley so clearly dominates the female riding market and because women are the fastest growing new-rider segment, it makes perfect sense that Harley-Davidson’s models make for perfect introductions to the game.

BMW F 800 GT

According to the Chicago Tribune, the BMW has been hugely popular among women riders for over 3 decades and its accessibility for women riders continues to grow. The F 800 GT, which weighs a mere 509 pounds, does a wonderful job of bridging the gap between new and experienced rider and experienced rider, which makes this comfortable model with its low 31.5-inch seat height perfect for intermediate riders of any stripe.

Woman Rider

Kawasaki Ninja 250 / 300

The Ninja 250 has long been the automatic choice for beginning women riders who want a sleeker, sport-bike style. In 2013, Kawasaki brought out the 300cc version without giving up the confidence-boosting characteristics that made the 250 a bestseller among riders.

Ducati Monster 696

There’s something automatically sexy about Italian things — from cars to food, to wine, even down to the people. It should come as no surprise, then, that the consummate Italian motorcycle brand Ducati makes the list. At just 410 pounds with a narrow profile and manageable seat height, the Monster 696 is a perfect ride for women of smaller frame or stature.

Whatever the size of your wallet, there is a motorcycle model out there for you. With such a range of style, power, and price, there is no reason not to boost your profile and self-worth by getting your hands on a new or used motorcycle today.
