"Kermit," "Thunderchild" and "Time Machine" are cool nicknames for motorcycles. "Thor" was the ancient Scandinavian God of thunder, so this name is appropriate for fast sport bikes.
Giving a pet name to a motorcycle can reveal a lot about the relationship that exists with its owner. Some humorous nicknames include "Flying Banana," "Midlife Crisis" and "The Vibrator." "Beasty" or "Hulk" are also great names for big, powerful bikes with an attitude. Giving a motorcycle human names such as "Betsy" or "Oliver" clearly shows the attachment of its owner, who may think of it as a close friend or family member.
