Salam'alaik wanita solehah, my honest opinion would be to get auto bikes such as gilera or vespa, they look good and at the same time it'll be easier for you should you feel like wearing a dress or skirt. Alternatively, if you're talking about 2B scramblers XR2 should be alright; low maintenance, light and durable engine; consider getting those that have electric start, it'll be much easier. Choose wisely.

You are free from that of which you despair, but you are a slave to that which you desire.

Stick with 4 strokes. XR125, XR200, DR200 are great little bikes with low maintenance and good fuel economy.

 

Try to sit on one to see if the bike is too tall. Adjusting the rear spring preload to minimum helps too.

Past: KDX200, LC4 400, LC4 620, GSXR750WR

Present: CBR900RRY, Gas Gas EC250, XR250L, XR250RV, XR400 (motard-ed), NX650 Dominator

I'm planning to get a bike soon next yr..But ive no idea what type of scrambler should i ride..Which is the most suitable scrambler model for women?Light,easy in maintanence and good?Those experience people,please give me some opinions and ideas..thanks..

To add on to the responses so far, Honda XL185 is would also fit your needs. In my opinion, the Suzuki DR200 is your top choice. It meets all your requirement, and it has an electric start.

 

However, I am of the opinion that scooter would choose a lady better because of it's elegant riding position as ride with your legs together. This is very useful when wearing long skirts.

Here we go again...Whats up with Scramblers & Women...Dun get me wrong...I like scramblers & I like women too :lol:...But I juz cannot understand why SOME women struggle to tip-toe at a traffic light when they have so many other SAFER & STYLO options...

 

MAN LAW No. 1 - If you cannot put your 2 feet on the ground when you have mounted your bike, chances are, you can either go for surgery to lenghten your legs or simply select another bike for crying out loud.

 

But thats juz me :lol:

 

e.g. Look at Trinity at the Pic below...

Its not how you pick your nose...Its where you flick the BOOGER!!!

To all the vertically-challenged ladies, pay no attention to this Chow Yun Fatt character.

 

If there is a problem, there must be a solution. We must always think out of the box. Try this

P.S. There is a solution my friend...Get a SUITABLE Bike...:lol:

I'm into scrambler..But im just 1.59m tall..Is there any such scram bikes that suites me?

I use to ride XR400 and have friends who are about 1.65m or less and riding it is no problem. So I guess XR125/200 and DR200 are your best options. They all tip toe. Honestly, I can never put BOTH FEET firmly on the ground with XR400 only one foot firmly down or BOTH FEET tiptoe and I am 1.75m. The point is you learn and adjust to suit yourself to the bike height.

What's wrong with ladies wanting to ride scramblers? It's a personal preference.

 

You forget that many male dirt riders tiptoe when at traffic lights too. I've seen a schoolmate getting on his scrambler by first stepping on the kerb. Maybe you should tell them to go for surgery to lengthen their legs or simply select another type of bike.

 

 

I've seen a number of ladyriders on scramblers and big bikes... Thumbs up for keeping the passion alive and not caring what guys say about us. :thumb:

Ok...Ok...My Bad...My Bad...Let me juz re-phrase what I juz said...

 

Male or Female riders who cannot even tip-toe on both feet when mounted on a bike should consider choosing another more suitable bike for your own safety...God Damn It!!!...don't you realise how many traffic lights there are in Singapore...:lol:

 

There...I said it...Think its better phrased now...:lol:

 

P.S. Has it occured to you that sometimes a personal preference is wrong or mis-lead?...Juz like some ppl who think they are some kind of new GOD juz becos they got a hot-rod :lol:

Its not how you pick your nose...Its where you flick the BOOGER!!!

I don't think there is anything wrong with someone who wants to ride the bike he or she chooses. If they are comfortable with their style of riding and are passionate about the bike they ride, who is to question their passion and drive?

 

 

p.s.s haven't it occurred to you that only half of the population has a rod?

Well I guess if you insist on going thru a Bungee Jump...It is always wise to check if you got the suitable Bungee Cord...:lol:

 

I guess we cannot eliminate all the dangers on a Bike...Hell No!...But we can try to minimize it...We dun always have to be Young & Foolish Before we get Old & Wise...Sometimes, life is as such that you dun even get a second chance...take heed my fellow riders...ride a bike that suits you best...:smile:

 

You asked:"Who is to question their passion and drive?"...Well, I guess all the other road user have the right to do so, since we all share the roads remember? Because your danger could ultimately also lead to mine...:smile:

 

F.Y.I. A Hot-Rod is a Car...I Rest My Case...:lol:

thanks. i do know... I'm not as ignorant as you think.

 

I ride and I drive and I haven't come across any tiptoe-ing rider causing any danger to other road users. I've seen taxi drivers causing more nuisance on the roads and oh hell, they have both feet on the floor. Same difference, see.

 

Yeah... I agree, ride a bike that suits you... one that suits your personality.

yeah..

taxi drivers are dangerous...

read in a vara thread that one guy got knocked into a railing on the way to changi airport by a taxi driver...lucky he wasn't hurt bad....

 

bikes are bikes....

anyone can ride anything they like...

if they know how to handle it properly & aren't a hazard to themselves or other ppl, it shouldn't be a problem...

 

even my bro when he was riding an XR4 had to tiptoe...and even then he could only tiptoe on 1 foot...

it he wanted to mount or dismount he had to find a curb...

but he was never a danger kos he knew how to handle the bike safely...

he speeds & drives kinda recklessly in my opinion but he never caused an accident or been in one....

 

it's the rider mainly, not the bike..

kos the bike is inanimate..

it doesnt control u, you control it....

so if u can't control it, dont ride it...

even a cub can be dangerous..

There is a higher chance for you to lose your balance when you can only tip-toe on one foot, no? & why compare youself to others who are worse off when you can choose to be the better person :smile:

 

Yeah... I agree, ride a bike that suits you... one that suits your personality.

 

If you insist :lol:

Like I said, we cannot elimiate danger but we can reduce it :smile:

Exactly!...:smile:

must be skilled lah....

n my bro could be lucky..

but if it's luck, then it would run out one day right?

but if it's skill, then it's all you...

n with a pillion, you skill needs to be higher...

especially when you can't touch the ground..

so many times he pillion me also no injuries..

only thing was i got craps kos the pillion footpegs were too high...

 

only injuries he got were when he went dirt biking...

doing jumps and all that...

but on the road, no matter how fast he went, he was still in control..

must be sensible..

if u can handle urself at high speeds, no problem..

but if u cant but u still speed, then very dangerous...

 

mounting is only a one off thing..

you don't exactly dismount in the middle of the road...
