Motorcycles for little people

Which motorcycles are best for short women – and also for short men? We set out with this question and tried around 100 motorcycles.

Recommendations, challenges and anomalies can be found in the first episode of the new podcast MOTORRAD Driver, the motorcycle podcast for women.

MOTORCYCLE Rider Episode 1 – Motorcycles for little people

Motorcycles for little people, motorcycles for little women and for little men – this is the subject of the three MOTORRAD editorial staff Iris Fischer, Mona Pekarek and Dina Dervisevic. To do this, they tried around 100 current models. In fact, the extensive seat rehearsal tour was for the motorcycle fair “Motorcycles Dortmund” planned, which took place from March 5th to 8th, 2020. Since MOTORRAD canceled participation for known reasons, the colleagues switched to the regional dealers for their research, all of whom were still open at the time.

Measure inside leg length and compare with

In their first podcast episode, the colleagues report on their experiences, flops and favorites while trying out their seats. Mona and Dina measure 1.58 meters, Iris is 1.68 meters tall. Another measure is much more important, namely the inside leg length. Mona is 72 centimeters, Dina is 76 and Iris is 79 centimeters. So that you can classify directly which assessments of ours also apply to you, grab a measuring tape and stretch it from the top point on the inside of the thigh down to the floor. If you don’t have a tape measure, just take a piece of string or wrapping paper and then use the yardstick to measure how many centimeters inside leg you have. In addition, we clarify in this episode: What actually makes a motorcycle so that it is suitable for smaller motorcyclists? A low seat height alone is not enough.

Husqvarna – an extremely popular brand. The small ones unfortunately have to be prepared for the fact that there is not a large offer for them here.

The focus is on topics and questions that concern women who ride motorcycles, which motorbikes they ride and what they experience with them. It’s not about demarcation. It’s about getting the riders out there involved. In addition to the usual motorcycle topics, which are just as interesting for women as they are for men, in our experience female pilots talk even more frequently about the maneuverability of mopeds and about seat height and width as well as difficulty or ease of movement of the clutch. And there are countless other motorcycle topics that are worth looking at from the female point of view, reporting and talking about them.

Just listen to it and tell us what you think. We look forward to mail podcast@motorradonline.de.
