What does your motorcycle say about your personality?

The type of bike you own can really tell you a lot about your personality. Of course, there are not two owners of the same motorcycle exactly alike, but people who are attracted to similar motorbikes often share similar interests in other areas. Here is a list of some popular bikes and what they can […]

The type of bike you own can really tell you a lot about your personality.

Of course, there are not two owners of the same motorcycle exactly alike, but people who are attracted to similar motorbikes often share similar interests in other areas. Here is a list of some popular bikes and what they can say…about you!

Suzuki Bandit


If you drive any of the many models of Bandit Suzuki, you’re probably cosmopolitan, and your bike is your primary mode of transportation. You probably do not ride a motorcycle on weekends for fun. You use it to work, to meet friends, and other day-to-day appointments. If you’re in college, you probably hear indie music while cruising around the city.


Harley-Davidson Sportster – You’re probably a loyal Harley fan or you’re going through a middle-aged crisis. Must like imported beers, leather, pit bulls and biker conventions. If you are a woman, you probably have a long hair. If you are a man, you should have a very interesting beard style. You are also someone who takes financial risks; as we know, Harley is not cheap and if your income is average, you might need to make an agreement with motorbike finance.

Yamaha R1 – You have a need for speed. You take risks. People would love to be as brave and bold as you. On the other hand, you may be the person who dreams of the road, as long as you feel enslaved by the work that takes up all of your time. Whatever your situation, you are wild at heart.

Honda Gold Wing – If you’re like most owners of a Gold Wing, your other motorcycle is probably a suburban model, and you should use this on long romantic journeys. Being comfortable on the open road is your priority, and sometimes you think about swapping your motorcycle for a boat.

BMW C 650 GT – It is safe to assume that you have good taste. You probably have a deep appreciation for expensive wines, French food, and modern art. You should live in a stylish loft in the center of town and it is quite possible that you do not want to have children. You are constantly going to clubs, bars and art exhibitions after a long week making money.

Vespa LX 150 – You must have trouble identifying with other motorcyclists, and you probably use your scooter to go to work and coffee with friends. It would not be surprising if you were environmentally conscious and said you use your Vespa to save money and fuel.

Ducati Hypermotard 796 – You are almost certainly witty and charming. You obviously have a deep appreciation for the beautiful and elegant things that the world has to offer. You probably also have a more dangerous side, and it may not be uncommon to fray you by overtaking the speed limit and breaking some traffic rules.

Of course not always a person’s personality can be described by the type of motorbike but at the very least, the information above can give an illustration.
