Top 5 Harley-Davidson motorcycles for women riders
Unlike other gender-specific things, there are hardly any motorcycles made specifically for women. But there are several models with low seat height and narrow frame that qualify as perfect rides for women motorcyclists. Today, we look at the top 5 Harley-Davidson motorcycles that women can ride with greater control and confidence. Here's our compilation.
Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe
With a bulky stance, long handlebars, and big twin exhausts, the Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe looks like one of those unfriendly two-wheelers for women. But on the contrary, the low seat height of 24.5 inches and a low center of gravity make it one of the comfortable options for women riders. And like a true Harley, this 303kg, 1,745cc machine churns out 145Nm of torque.
Harley-Davidson Sportser 883 Superlow
Touted as an easy ride by Harley-Davidson itself, the Sportser 883 Superlow is one of the most preferred cruiser motorcycles by women riders, world over. Its 25.5-inch low seat, well-balanced stance, low center of gravity make it easy to maneuver and comfortable for long journeys. What's more? You also get 69Nm of torque from the rumbling 883cc air-cooled engine.
Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Custom
If you're an intermediate or advanced rider, the Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Custom should be right up your alley. The low split seat, lighter body (255kg), and the narrow frame will ensure that your feet easily reach the ground for added confidence and control over the bike. And once you're in command, it is up to you where you take the 1,202cc, 96Nm torque-producing motorcycle.
Harley-Davidson Street Glide
With its responsive, high-performing front and rear suspension as well as ABS Brembo brakes (optional), the Harley-Davidson Street Glide is yet another great ride for women. The motorcycle offers 27.3-inch seat and packs a ton of power, thanks to 1,745cc Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine. It also offers a Boom Box GTS infotainment system with dual 25W speakers and smartphone connectivity.
Harley-Davidson Softail Low Rider
With an approximately 27-inch saddle, low center of gravity, 287kg of weight (courtesy a new lightweight design and aluminum wheels), and high-performance suspension, the Softail Low Rider is great for women motorcyclists. And like most Harley bikes, this one packs a roaring 145Nm-producing 1,745cc engine, head-turning looks, and dual exhausts that are done in chrome.
