I kinda like it. It fills a niche.
I've never agreed with it either, but have always heard the sportsters called 'girl bikes'. In fact, without any prompting from myself, the HD salesman brought the subject up when I went in to look at the 48. I'm guessing because of their smaller size? Maybe some ppl just like to slam anything they feel is inferior to their own ride? Dunno. I'd love to have the funds to have either an 883 or a 48 as a second bike. Not so sure about the one in this thread tho.How can one call the 883 a girls bike.
Now I'm not saying a girl can't or shouldn't ride it, but that bike doesn't deserve the connotation period.
Maybe a Vespa or a Honda 250, but no way no how an 883. It's just too much motorcycle in every sense of the word to be called that.
Harley Davidson Street 750 & Street 500 Are The Made-In-India BikesDid I miss something? Haven't heard of anythig smaller than the 883 other than some smaller bike for the Indian market
Royal enfieilds are made in India. And are good bikes. But I kind of like the new bikes. I don't know why there is a mindset of smaller displacement bikes being girls bikes. I see more women on SG, and softails then I do sportsters.At least the blast was American made. I wouldn't trust my life on something made in India.
Yeah, no such thing as a girl's bike - unless its all pinked out. :rollinYeah, and hopefully it will once and for all kill that stupid line of thinking that an 883 is a "starter bike" or as others have said, a "girl's bike".
We haven't pulled the trigger on it yet, but Mrs. B is eyeballing a denim black street glide that she wants to have pink flames painted onto. I am really looking forward to the looks on people's faces.Yeah, no such thing as a girl's bike - unless its all pinked out. :rollin
