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.

sadly, revisiting, you still haven't found your turn around, a one excellent channel - BS talk about the katana design only proves you know nothing about design. while I like the FTR too, it's convoluted of uglyness in accessories and covers... similarly to the many cables and tubes that messed with the original monster's design.

The best looking motorcycle is the one the rider is happy with. The beauty in the eyes of the one who look. As for cars, the most beautiful is the vintage Alpine A110. Nothing compares.

Ah, No. To just about everything that was said about the FTR. Were you reading a Marketing release? To me this bike is about as ugly as it gets. Owww air box under faux tank panels, fuel under seat. JUST like the Racers! ouu wow, so what. It isn't a racer, you aren't a racer. Get out of make believe and get a real life. You do create great films, and 99% are good commentary on good subjects. Not this time for me. Wasted 10:25 minutes of my life plus composing this comment.

I would put Ducati Diavel next to the FTR as well. It’s a striking design blending two different aesthetics: a super sport and a cruiser. It has smooth flowing lines, perfect proportions and an unmistakeable silhouette, just like the FTR. Amazing video as always Ryan.

I very much enjoyed your video. But, the 1960s Moto Parilla Wildcat Scrambler is the MOST beautiful motorcycle I have ever seen and I have been looking closely at motorcycles for over sixty years. The engine is a masterpiece and the proportions are elegant.

There's a strong argument for the Vincent Black Shadow or the 916 as being the the most beautiful bike ever made but I'm afraid every motorcycle in that museum you visited was infinitely more beautiful than the Indian you're riding. I suppose it's fair enough for everyone to love the bike they're riding but, no matter how many circles and lines you draw over the top of that particular bike, it's still just a derivative copy of the Ducati Monster. Even scooters like the Vespa 98 II or the Italjet Dragster are way prettier to look at than your chosen bike. My own Royal Enfield Pegasus is a pretty useless motorcycle by most metrics but it's gorgeous to look at. I'll often come back to find people posing beside it being photographed (it's happened twice just this weekend). My guess is that doesn't happen with that Indian of yours.

A 10-1/2 minute Indian motorcycle ad/infomercial. Not a lawyer but based on what I'm seeing elsewhere I think paid promotions have to be disclosed to the youtube viewer. I see no such disclosure on this 10+ minute long ad.

It's not the geometry that matters. It's the heart of the motorcycle and her rider together that matters.. She is a beauty when she revs up and sings her symphony when her rider puts the throttle up and zooommm both vanishes to the thin air..

I would love to see you get with Netflix to make a documentary series about the history and science of motorcycles and gear. You’re like a millennial David Attenborough and I am learning a lot as a very new rider. You’re practicality, humor, candor and commitment are appreciated and the work of you and your team should be shared.

I follow the crowd and agree that the 916 is one of the most beautiful (production) bikes on the planet. Then I take a little side step and put the Honda RC30 pretty close behind. The 1934 BMW R7 remained a prototype so no spot on the production bike ladder, but damn that bike is a piece of art.

1983 Kawasaki LTD Twin Belt Drive (sold in 2005 with rebuilt motor for $800CN), 1982 Honda CB900 C (full fairing and lowers and the 10 speed tranny; sadly totaled by me), now a red 1996 HD XL1200S. The Ex's 1995 HD XLH1200 Canadian Edition (1 of 70 built?) done up by the Deeley's was a cool bike. White Pearl with gold lettering and pinstipe, lowered, mini apes, floor boards. She entered it in a couple of shows and third each time. The fuss the Florida baby boys put up when a Lady shows up with a cool bike against them.

Wow. I saw your other video and glad I stayed on this channel. I had no idea this motorcycle exist. I've always wanted an American made motorcycle but not a Harley junk lol. I want a cruiser with sport attitude like radial calipers and inverted forks... and here I am.

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 😄
