Ducati 996? Vincent Black Shadow? Suzuki Gladius? Booty might be in the eye of the beholder but it’s not all subjective either. We take a deep dive into motorcycle aesthetics.

You see, you can buy a more powerful sport naked, you can buy a better road bike, you can buy a better cruiser. But none of them will be as beautiful. And thats something to be proud of.

Another excellent tutorial. BUT... Mr. Ryan, can you explain why the Ducati Dessert Sled caused erectile tissue twitching in males and counterpart female reactions in the ladies whilst the bike you demonstrated is somewhat more analytically appreciated? It’s sort of paralleled to being attracted to a beautiful mate vs. visiting a beautiful art gallery.

Thank you for a fine video. I wish you could hold the camera still longer on each motorcycle image. The reason is the brain and the image processing machinery doesn't have enough time to puzzle over the image when the image is moving. This is a elegant and interesting video. I need more time to look at the motorcycle images. Along those lines, when I think of what is a beautiful bike I think of a 56 year old Honda 305 Super Hawk. There is a short Northern California mountain motorcycle ride up Highway 35 to the Sky Londa delicatessen where any Sunday may have a Vincent, some Ducatis , Triumphs and a collectors BMW. What fun to savor the interesting combinations of aesthetics: engines, various sweeping lines. The bike owners figure out the combination of aesthetics that their motorcycle emphasizes and that is a big part of owning that bike.

When it comes to an Italian beauty contest, they always won. Ducati 1098 is the most beautiful bike I have ever seen in my life. And even 14 years later it still seems current design.

Where to start??? 🤔 Brough Superior SS100 is simply a work of art. Ducati S4 Monster 916 has that fem-fatale sex appeal. AJS Model 18 Statesman has a certain functional beauty. Moto Guzzi Griso is so chilled. But for down-right majesty, it has to be the HRD Series A Rapide.- hands-down, every day of the week, including Sundays 😄

When Ryan said OG Pliny the Elder, I had to do a double take, Wait! What! I thought he was referring to the original gravity measurement in the double IPA beer "Pliny the Elder" from Russian River Brewing. Then it dawned on me, he was talking about the Original Pliny the Elder from Roman times. What ever.

Another great video that presents a lot of very interesting information! However, I have to say that I think the FTR 1200 is butt-ugly. When people say "ugly motorcycle", it's the first one i think of. The center of the visual space is a confusing mishmash of spaghetti with no focus point and the bike overall appears to be frozen in the middle of a panic stop, even when it's not moving. I wouldn't choose the XR750 either but it's a much better example of the points you make, IMHO. I might have chosen the 1973 SL350 or the 1975 XS650B as an example of what I think is a beautiful motorcycle. However, "de gustibus non est disputandum". The important thing is to ride and (hopefully) love what you ride. PS - I remember looking at the RE5 when it first came out. The cylindrical instrument cluster was a large part of what killed sales. Even the Suzuki dealer could only say "Well... yeah" about it. It should have had instruments like the GT of the time which were really attractive.

Clearly entertaining but also clearly a paid commercial for Indian,I bet if Suzuki had given you a free bike lines would have turned any Suzuki into a beauty too! Your mistake was choosing the Katana for the bashing,a revered game changing styling icon done by Target Design.Lines do not mean shi*...it is if the design induces excitement and emotion and you know that!

I like the Katana better than the Indian. It looks like it has more character. But then I'm planning on buying a Royal Enfield Himalayan so obviously not qualified to give my opinion. I mean the Himalayan has two front fenders. Why? because two is better than one. I'm considering holding out for a 2022 in hopes they'll add an extra rear fender and a extra windshield. I think it'll be a lot more esthetically balanced.

My opinion? Most modern motorcycles are ugly as £yck ... To much frame, to crowded for the eye. Like GI Joe toys from early 2000. Agressive, soulless, plastic fantastic, over engineered, crowed, tons of electronics leaves little room for hobbyist maintenance. Little streamlined form. No nostalgia. I hear you think .. So what do you ride?! A Honda ST1100AY metallic blue from 2000. High tech enough (ABS/TCS/CBS) but oldskool at same time with its V4, 4 carburateurs ... Ride it once and you're sold. 20+ years old.

I work as a designer and when considering what the most beautiful bike out there is, that Indian bike never comes to mind. I don't find it ugly, but it is most definitely not a looker. After seeing this video, it seems that a bunch of engineers used "art lingo" to explain why they loved their work but didn't fully grasp what they were talking about. That "bone line" you keep mentioning is completely non-existent. If I kept mentioning that bone line in a design critique i'd get torn apart for not having something that I keep bringing up and making seem important. Don't get me wrong, I actually very much like the bike, but beauty is not one of the reasons I like it.

Every FortNine video ever: "The best bikes are naked bikes. The most beautiful bikes are naked bikes." Yes my dear, beauty is indeed subjective. What you see in the Indian, i see in the Yamaha R1. There is no "most beautiful", because there are more eyes than one to percieve it.

I maintain that beauty has roots in design language. The h2 is a beautiful bike because it (to me) is the most beautiful form of the kawasaki design language thus far. Alternatively, the milled metal and unorthodox layout of the confederate/curtiss p51 is beautiful but cannot be replicated by any other brand. Agustas and Ducatis are similarly beautiful but incomparable. You can see this a lot in cars: the Mercedes f1 is, to me, revolting, because it tries to push too far away from the design language of the brand (a successful example would be the SLS, which pushed mb's design language into a sportier form without making it look alien). So while universal beauty guidelines influence good design, individual design languages outline good design in context.
