For example, there are perfume campaigns that combine clothes with the motor. Balmain or Karl Lagerfeld have developed this type of pieces in their collaborations between clothing and motorcycle brands.
The use of motorcycles is not only exclusive for daily transport. According to Diego Pérez, spokesman for SUPERMEN, using these vehicles is also synonymous with adventure, experience, and personality. “Motorcycles can represent an attractive and adventurous personality as a way of life; it also serves as a complement to the most important moments of the motorcyclist. The world of motorcycles also revolves around social groups where you can create strong bonds of friendship and share rides, rides and other experiences in common, ”he said.
Moreover, a study by Carole Nash to test perceptions of motorcyclists obtained the following results: motorcyclists are the most attractive. The investigation revealed that those who own a motorcycle are seen as adventurers for a third of the opposite sex (34%), daring people (28%) and that they like fun (26%).
The investigation also revealed that one in four men own a motorcycle to impress a woman and almost a third (31%) would be willing to use this means of transport to impress a potential couple. This has positioned positively in contrast to the negative stereotypes that some people have.
On the other hand, in addition to its advantages over image and perception, riding a motorcycle, as well as any other transport, requires great responsibility, since they are more vulnerable to accidents. It is proven that the incidence of motorcycle accidents is a severe problem in cities.
