Pink Motorcycles

Pretty or ... well, you decide

By Genevieve Schmitt, Editor

The color pink.

Women either love it or hate it. Men, I think, are pretty much indifferent.

Because there are more women than ever before riding motorcycles, we’re seeing many of them express themselves by painting their motorcycles pink.

No matter how you feel about pink, it does attract your attention. Take a look at some of the photos of pink bikes weve photographed or collected over the years and tell us what you think in the comments below. And if you have a pink motorcycle youd like to add send it to us with your name, where youre from, and some information about the bike and well add it to this photo essay. Thanks!

DeSiree Archie from Chicago, Illinois, shares her three pink vehicles with us. Desiree customized her 2007 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 to reflect her love of pink, and then again on her 2007 Harley-Davidson Street Glide which has been her two-wheeled ride since 2009. Her four-wheeled ride is a Jeep Wrangler with subtle pink accents.

Most of the customizing on the 650 was done with Marti’s input. For example, Marti, at 5 feet 8 inches, wanted the seat height lowered. So a lowering kit was installed in the front and back, and the seat foam was slimmed down for a 2-inch overall drop in seat height.

Ultimately, she was traded in for a 2014 Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe, but the pink and black Sporty holds a very special place in Tobys heart.

  1. My husband saw a group of about 15 women each on a pink bike today. They rode over to where my 3 year old was practicing riding her bicycle without training wheels, lined up, and cheered her on! My husband said it brought tears to his eyes. If anyone knows of a group out in San Diego with all pink, let me know. I’d love to reach out to them.

  2. I loved the article—I have been wanting to paint my bike pink, which is my favorite color, and I was just looking for pictures when I ran across your site. I love it—and when I do get my bike painted I will send you pictures right away. Thank you.

    1. Hi Debbie, thanks for your kind words. Please do post your pics once you get your bike painted. Here’s a tip: take a nice “before” and “after” picture with the bike in the same position. You’ll be able to look back and really appreciate the new paint for years to come.

  3. Love all the beautiful pink bikes! I ride a 2002 Yamaha 650 V Star Classic Custom.

  4. Ladies, your bikes are lovely. As a 10-year cancer survivor and a woman rider, I say thank you for representing us all!

  5. I’m 49 years old and I’ve been riding motorcycles for 13 years. I’ve had three motorcycles in my life thus far. Started off on a sports motorcycle, then purchased a Softail, and now I’m riding a Road Glide and love every minute of it.

  6. I think pink bikes are sort of a girl power statement. When I first saw my bike I knew it had to be mine. It is perfectly me. It is fun and ladylike but still has strength and power.

  7. I love all the bikes. Mine is white pearl and I call her Pearl. I love to ride even solo. I do agree with Brittany Morrow’s comment. Do whatever you want to your bike. It’s your bike. Just ride safe and enjoy the feeling of freedom it gives you. Because you can!

  8. I love pink and love customizing my bikes! Heck my name is Mz Pink! Check out both of my pink bikes and my all girl motorcycle club here in Boston! 2003 Kawasaki Ninja 636 and a 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000

  9. I would love to see my pink HD in your article. How do I get it on there?

  10. This is me with my 2011 Can-Am Spyder RS wrapped in “Muddy Girl” graphics.

  11. My 2016 Indian Chieftain “Shoshone.” I was always being asked, “How does your husband like his Chieftain?” I always reply, “His Roadmaster is very nice, but I really love my Chieftain that you’re admiring.”I’m not a biker chick. I’m a 52-year-old woman that loves the magic and adventure of riding my own motorcycle—a lady rider. For some reason, with this bike, I felt a personal need to bling her with beautiful shine. I added 800 Swarovski crystals on my own to her saddle and backrest, and dotted every “i” in the name “Indian” on her. We have a beautiful bond. Even with her two-tone paint not being Pink. She’s still my beautiful Indian Shoshone.

  12. I really haven’t seen that many pink bikes, and it’s good too see them here. Here is a pic of my 1984 Harley-Davidson 1000 Sporty before I picked out Fat Bobs and pink. I still have it and I just picked up a 2011 Softtail. Funny, it’s black right now… I am thinking it needs to be pink.

  13. This is my 2006 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200. My husband had it custom-painted pink and black by his friend Jeremiah! Pink is my favorite, she’s even got underlying pink lights. We have 5 children and we love to ride. The pic of me on my bike is out in Sturgis during the 75th.

  14. I ride a custom pink and black “hello kitty” Suzuki DRZ400EK1.

  15. My 2016 Indian Chieftain. She’s not all pink but everything you see that is. I painted myself in our garage over this summer.

  16. Loved this fun, inspiring, and even touching article, as I am a new rider at age 56. I loved the cool colors, designs, and paint jobs and the stories of the women riders and their supportive male partners who helped some of them with their pink prizes. Your articles are always encouraging and inspiring and value packed with info and safety tips, too!

  17. I really enjoyed this article. I plan to ride my bike more often. It is great how all the ladies are riding for the cause of breast cancer awareness. Hopefully, all types cancer will one day be eliminated.

    1. Hi Phyllis,Just to be clear, the women featured here simply sent in their pink motorcycles to be included in our story. We can’t honestly say they painted their bikes pink in honor of breast cancer awareness. We just happened to re-promote this story in October, so I can see where readers would think there’s a connection. There is not.

  18. My name is Lisa and I live in Missouri. I love the color pink but I also love what the color represents: breast cancer awareness. I participate in rides for the cause. I ride every day that I can. I can’t tell you how many complements I get on my bike when I’m out getting some wind therapy. My bike is also very loud. I always wear pink when riding. If you can’t see me you can for sure hear me. Life is good on my bike. Love riding my pink bike!

  19. Here’s one you missed!

  20. Each to their own. That’s why it’s called “your bike”; make it what you like. Pink is not my color. It just doesn’t suit me. As for my black, I wear it well. That’s why there’s so many different colors and bikes. Love these ladies and love their bikes and love their colors. All lady riders rock. Thanks for the article!

  21. I feel left out! Here is a pic of mine…did all the work myself…pretty proud of myself.

  22. Love all the pink bikes! Here’s me and my pink 2010 Vespa LX150 – it gets all kinds of love everywhere I go on it.

  23. I’m glad the manufacturers went with some other color than black to get the girls involved, and sell stuff, but I for one will be happy when the pink fad passes. There are other ways to feminize a bike, but not as cheap as mass produced pink. Also there are times on the road that I don’t want to scream, “Look it’s a girl!”

  24. While pink is not my colo — my Street Glide is Daytona Blue Pearl — I agree that it is just a color. To each their own. Ride on — be it pink, red, black, purple, etc.

  25. I really love all of them. I was especially touched by Donna’s bike and shed a tear.

  26. I find it odd that a mere color can evoke such strong opinions. I believe it is part of our cultural upbringing that taught us to associate a simple color with being feminine. Then is a blue motorcycle “manly?” Pink, blue, red, yellow… they’re just colors and all can be used to express one’s personal tastes. And in the case of cancer, color can be used to make a statement.I personally spent years designing and customizing a pink breast cancer tribute motorcycle. I loved it, but it sure did evoke strong personal opinions. I just laughed at the scoffers who showed themselves to be completely insecure over a mere color. For people to gag at a motorcycle being pink… it baffles me. It’s just a color.

  27. Love them. Mine is violet.

  28. Dot Robinson rode a pink motorcycle with the other great ladies in the Motor Maids and apparently she was very proud of it. As long as women can ride well and safe that’s all that matters. My Sportster is teal but I do wear pink whenever possible!

  29. I love pink! I want my next bike to have pink, cream, and silver to match my superwoman key chain. Pink has always been my favorite color and I’ve always loved motorcycles. These bikes are so cool. Keep the pics coming.

    1. We agree, Doni! We will continue to post pink bike pictures as they come in from readers, so keep checking back to see more beauties.

  30. Bravo to women who ride what makes them feel empowered. If it’s pink, then go for it! Loved the article, especially the photos of the women and their rides.

  31. I am a woman who happens to be a rider. I am a rider who happens to be female. Either way, I express myself through my machine and the gear I wear. Painting my R6 pink, black and white didn’t make it any faster, but it sure did make it unique. Like every female, especially those who are special enough to be a part of this rough-and-tumble community, being able to do WHATEVER THE HECK I WANT is important. Being a rider helps me do that, and painting my bike pink is just my way of saying, “I do what I want, because I can.” I think anything you choose to do to make your bike more “yours” is fine with me. I don’t have to like it, and you don’t have to like mine! That’s the beauty of freedom, and isn’t that what this sport/hobby is all about!?! Pink on… or don’t. Either way, ride!

  32. … the elephant skin covered saddle. The skin came from an elephant that her girlfriend’s husband hunted. Sad, and WRONG!

  33. Absolutely not. Black with pink flames, or white with pink flames yes. But not all pink, I don’t like it at all and I love the color pink. But definitely not these light pink colors. NO WAY.

  34. I have mixed feelings about it honestly. For awhile I myself would wear gender neutral colors, and my bike is blue. But after a few years, for unknown reasons, it has suddenly become important to me for other riders to know I’m a girl, so now I have a flowered helmet. I do look for other female riders on the road, so riding with “girly colors” on helps us to spot each other I suppose. I think female riders need to make sure we take ourselves seriously, which will increase our chances of being taken seriously by others. If we trivialize ourselves, and make it all about being cutesy but without the skill to back it up, then we’ll be considered quaint but inconsequential additions to our riding communities. In the end, I don’t really care what color you choose to wear or paint your bike, but please continue to improve your riding skills and prove that we are skilled riders that also happen to be girls!

  35. I’m not a big fan of pink motorcycles or gear, but to each their own. I don’t think of myself as a girl who rides, but rather a motorcyclist who happens to be a woman, so I don’t go out of my way to make my bike or gear scream “girl on a bike!”
