Default Define "Chick Bike"??

I read this quote from Stabby on a different thread and it prompted the question.... Chick Bike, what exactly is a "Chick Bike"

1) A bike that only a "chick" would ride?
2) A bike that is ridden mostly by "chicks"?
3) A bike with higher than normal estrogen levels?
4) A bike that would be better if painted pink?
5) A bike that most male riders consider... Delicate?, Dainty?, Feminine?

I'm on the fence about how I should feel regarding the designation "chick bike". Is there some underlying, emasculative, or less than desirable aspect to a bike that makes is less appealing to men?

Should I be insulted?
Goodness, NO.

It's most likely just a stereotypical delineator between the average "real man's bike" and what most women prefer to ride. Although, that being said... most of the women I see riding are on the BACK of the bike. So, is a "chick bike" one with a comfy rear seat??

I don't ride on the back...I have my own bike...

I own a 2008 675 Special Edition... so, does that make the Special Edition a Chick Bike, or am I, like Kels and Paws (to name a few) just a rare breed of woman who can handle a "Man's Bike".

Let's face it, the world of motorcycling is dominated by men (which is perfect with me). And I have often heard men use the term "chick bike", so, what exactly makes a bike a chick bike? Just curious....

Its just a term used by insecure males that feel that if a guy doesn't ride the biggest, fastest most powerful bike, they are somewhat less of a man.

OR

Its a bike that is accessoriesed very well with taste and style.

A Buell Blast certainly comes to mind.

Anything under 1000cc if your an ******* who can only ride fast in a straight line.

Hey, that was my last bike

It is obviosuly meant as a slam on the bike, but to me any bike with a chick on it (rider not passenger), is a chick's bike. She's got to be hot too

Judging by a couple of track days I saw last summer, a "chick" bike was the 675 that passed the dudes on the outside line because they were busy posing a knee down.

Here are a few bikes that have been termed "chick bikes" on various forums simply because women tended to buy more of them.

Kawasaki Ninja 250 (model years 1908-2007, I think the Ninja 250 has been around that long)
Suzuki SV650 (all model years)
Yamaha R6 (Pre 2003 model years)
Honda CBR F4/F4i
