A fan of our Women Riders Now Facebook page asked us what we thought were the top 5 lightweight motorcycles that make women look sexy. Good question! We think all motorcycles make a woman look sexy, but not all are lightweight. So we did some research and came up with these five motorcycles that meet that criteria. Indulge us as we share the motorcycles we think can help you transform into your sexy alter ego. Pick which one is you and tell us in the comments section. Lets have some fun!
Stunningly Seductive Honda CBR500R
Light weight doesn’t mean the motorcycle has to be a lightweight. Take the Honda CBR500R, a middleweight at just 425 pounds. Bold graphics against bright white make this motorcycle stand out. With a color coordinated helmet, jacket and boots, one can’t help but get heads turning as you sprint by on this seductress. We’ll always think a woman with long hair flowing out from underneath her helmet is downright sexy, but add in a stunning go-fast sportbike and it doesn’t get any sexier than this!
Naked and Naughty Suzuki GW250
Sorry, no naked rider shots here, just me on a naked entry-level motorcycle from Suzuki. (Naked here means minimal bodywork.) On my test ride of the all new GW250, I was amazed at how this 250cc motorcycle with its 6-speed parallel twin engine had enough power and torque to have me flying at 75 mph in no time. It’s just 403 pounds, and because it’s such a breeze to maneuver you might find yourself getting naughty (can you say wheelie!). It comes in black only, so no matter what you wear, like my Valentine’s Day red, you’ll get noticed!
Bold and Beautiful Harley-Davidson Street
Due to hit showrooms this spring, the Street, an all-new platform from Harley-Davidson, is available in 500 and 750cc motor sizes. This motorcycle is a true lightweight at under 500 pounds compared to its beefier big twin cousins. Regardless what the scale says, the radical styling can make any plain Jane or Joe stand out with edgy sexiness. The motorcycle’s boldness will sure rub off on you. Truly a great motorcycle on which to try out an alter ego!
Charming Classic Triumph Bonneville
The vintage upright styling of the Triumph Bonneville has always been a hit among purists, but now there’s a new generation of women riders flocking to the light, low and easy handling British bike and motorcycles just like it. At just under 500 pounds, the low seat height of 29 inches and narrow profile makes it easy for nearly any rider to handle. You can go cute and charming here, ya know—in an British sort of way—'cause cute and charming leaves a lot to the imagination! Follow me boys!
Decadent and Dangerous Ducati
There’s something sexy about Italian anything: Italian cars, Italian people and fine Italian wine. So of course the consummate Italian motorcycle brand, Ducati, makes our cut here. The Monster 696 is light at just 410 pounds with a narrow profile and manageable seat height of 30.3 inches. Unfortunately, I wasn’t thinking sexy motorcycle outfit when I threw on this conservative REV’IT brand riding jacket (for my photo shoot during my test ride a few months ago; full review posting soon), but I do love how the growly sounding 696 positions me for a super zippy ride. In the light of an Arizona sunset the white Italian paint-job shines while my mind dreams of riding dangerously close with some hot Italian motorcyclist like Fabio or Valentino Rossi.

I’ve always loved motorcycles but never had the opportunity to ride. Recently widowed, I’ve decided to make some changes. I went for my first Harley ride a couple weeks ago and I’m hooked!Obviously I’m a beginner. I need a lightweight bike so I can learn to handle it but I also need power. I loved the powerful feeling and love the strong sound of the Harley’s rumble.I’m drawn to the lighter Harley. The Triumph comes in second, but then the second picture of the Italian bike sticks with me. I don’t like the tucked-up leg look or feel so the Italian has that strike against it.
Love my Triumph Street Triple — light weight, handles amazing, and plenty of get up and go. You don’t need to be tall as the light, well balanced weight make it great fun to ride.
I ride a Yamaha FZ-09, which I love. But the bike that I own that turns the most heads when I’m on it is the R3 that I got last summer. The bike is a good starter bike, is lightweight and easy to handle. The FZ-09 is also light at 417 pounds and is a great bike for a more experienced rider.
Thanks for your feedback on both of those really good motorcycles for women.
I’d pick the Ducati (for my second, fun bike), for no other reasons than it’s got enough power and looks cool!
I would take a Triumph Bonneville but I am eagerly waiting to read a review on the new Moto Guzzi V7 with all the new upgrades. Either one would be welcome in my garage.
I really did love my Bonneville. But after a bad accident and she was totaled, I’m going with the lighter and nimbler Moto Guzzi V7 Stone.
Some awesome bikes on this list! Another contender is the new Yamaha FZ07, with a curb weight of only 397 pounds. I had the opportunity to spend a morning getting to know this bike, and I’m completely smitten. So light and maneuverable, yet it has loads of torque right through the rev range.
Great choices on the Five Sexy Light Weight Motorcycles. I would make the list the SEVEN Sexy…Adding:Kawasaki Ninja 650 at a curb weight of 460ANDYamaha’s New Triple FZ-9 with a curb weight of 416Thanks Genevieve for continuing to bring us great information!8-) and 😉
The Harley-Davidson Street is for me. I might have to buy one for myself for my 50th birthday this year! I gotta start somewhere!
I was really surprised not to see Yamaha’s FZ6R on the list! It’s way sexier than some of the Honda’s listed.
Yes, we do think the Yamaha FZ6R is sexy too! But it is heavier. Remember this is a list of lightweights, both in size and power, so the FZ6R didn’t make the list.
GO NAKED – Ducati 696! I surprised even myself last year when I traded in my Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 XLC for one. I’ve been loving every minute of it!
