My wife's term..."horrible and Hideous" mixed together....Lost my lunch looking at this thing...started screaming, "MY EYES! OH, MY EYES!!" Don't think the owner was too happy...

My wife said, "Looks like someone likes playing with dolls!" We beat a hasty exit after THAT comment. Fortunately, several other folks were saying similar things, so I didn't get shot! Check out the ASKING PRICE!!! Not sure of the engine...someone said a Honda Shadow 750....

Maybe there should be an "Ugly Bike" thread?

Ridley is a brand whose main selling point is that it has an automatic transmission, and it's targeted towards newer, clueless women riders. They sit low to the ground, have smaller displacement engines, and generally have plenty of mechanical issues. The artwork (if you can call it that) seems to have a high degree of workmanship; but is totally lacking in taste. I can't imagine many adult women who would want to ride this eyesore. :Tongue2 ............James.

For 21K? A $7,500 paint job? Might be able to do a better job with a bunch of stickers from Wal Marts toy dept.

Does it come with a Goofy-suit ATGATT? 'Coz that's the only way that bike would look cool.

They should take it to Sturgis. Somebody staggering out of one of the saloons will buy it.
Unless someone staggering out of a saloon doesn't burn it first.

My, my aren't we all stuffy about Mickey Mouse and his friends today. It is no different than endless other scary paint jobs on the .. other type V-Twin we see at bike shows. Some people like Walt and his friends rather than skulls and naked woman on their bikes.
Ridley is a overpriced but fun little bike and I hadn't heard from those who own one that they had mechanical troubles. Just slow and hard to steer. Seems the other V-Twin company sued Ridley last year for something like the potato, potato sound.

My 4-year-old daughter absolutely loves it!!!

I wouldn't necessarily say that Ridley is geared towards "clueless" women riders. My wife has a Suzukimatic, because she likes to just twist and go. She was quite distraught to hear the H-D sued Ridley into bankruptcy. My wife can drive a standard transmission car better than pretty much all the men I know.

Ridley did however target women in their designs. 750cc's though is quite adequate for many riders who aren't hung-up on the size matters mindset.

I don't even think Orange County Choppers would make a theme bike as ugly as that! And they've made some ugly s**t!
