A "sexy" Brompton?

We are not using our bikes much at the moment, except the Bromptons for the odd trip into town or to the Rhein-Neckar Zentrum, our local mall. Cycling is faster than walking and the bikes are easier to park than a motor car. This morning as I was cycling into town, I passed a group of young women outside the church down the road when one of them called "ein sexy Fahrrad!". Our Bromptons have been called goldig (sweet) in the past, but sexy? Dependable, well designed, fun I can understand but never sexy. Perhaps the word has a different meaning in young Germans' language than in English.
