We just got my wife a Harley Street 750 for her first bike. It is a low seat model, fairly light weight and docile torque/throttle response - easy on a beginner. It’ll do 70 mph comfortably with no annoying buzz or vibration.
After helping her test ride 6 different middle-displacement bikes in the last 3 weeks (750cc or less) including Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, BMW, and Royal Enfield, I have to say...
My Bobber is THE best handling bike!! Hands down. The Bobber IMHO is second only to the BMW touring bikes in terms of ease of handling. We would have purchased her a Bobber, but she wasn’t comfortable yet with the weight and power. But she’s doing great with learning to ride on the Harley! She’s now licensed to ride here in the USA, and we practice her skills 2-3 times a week around our community streets. I am looking forward to our first jaunt of around 50-60 miles on country roads around our area.
By the by, we are both in our 60’s but she runs 2-3 marathons a year, so very fit.
