  2. Evolved Marketing – The motorcycle industry has made a significant shift to include women in their marketing campaigns, since the increase of female riders. Similarly, there are many companies creating “women-friendly” motorcycles that feature unique adjustments such as lower seat height, lightweight, expanded colour options.  
  3. Sense of Freedom – Everyone who has enjoyed a motorcycle ride knows how powerful and freeing it feels. Women are no different, they share the infectious and liberating joy that comes from the open road.

Considering the growth of female-driven events such as the International Female Ride Day, we know there will continue to be more women representation within our motorcycle community.
