Notes: Well, that was quite an interesting model to vote on and discuss eh? Turns out it's a "like it or hate it" type of bike based on the voting, which it pretty much I think what we all expected before the vote! But no matter, the 2013 Can-Am Spyder ST-S still comes out on the Cool side of the vote by 52%! Well done Can-Am!


Here we go:

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Can-Am Spyder ST-S is...

Next Cool Wall bike is up. Have fun and thanks for voting!

Notes: I have to say that with a 55% Awesome rating and 30% Cool Rating the 2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200 should do just fine for Ducati. The only issue would be if the economy does slow down more and a $17-19k bike is just too much to bear...

Thanks to everyone who has voted thus far in the polls! The vote will remain open but the results from first week the bike is up is what goes into our Cool Wall.

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Zero XU Urban Crosser is...

Awesome 13%
Cool 23%
Uncool 13%
Fail 50%

Notes: Even though it ended as a 50% Fail vote it was not really as cut-and-dry as people did vote awesome and cool as well which does show there is a future for electric bikes, but either the technology, the cost or the buyers are just not 100% ready for it yet. It will be interesting to see how things change in their arena in the coming years.

2013 MV Agusta Brutale 800 - Final Vote: Awesome

Great voter turnout in the first week! (Now it sounds like the US elections...haha)

Unlike the votes in the US election though, every vote counts here and influences the other votes as well as the final result! So even though this bike came to be 93% awesome/cool, there was still 7% that didn't think so and those were not throw away votes at all.

But in the end, the Brutale line has always been an awesome line-up and the brand new Brutale 800 is no different at all.


Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 MV Agusta Brutale 800 is...

Awesome 61%
Cool 32%
Uncool 2%
Fail 5%

Voting is always open so if you didn't vote in the first week for this or any bike on our Cool Wall you can always go back and vote on the ones you missed! :)

Wow. 85% Fail.

That's harsh but sadly accurate. You never know, maybe we haven't seen the last of Ridley or US startup motorcycle companies with unique ideas. My advice would be research your market and price accordingly.

Overall, people really like the new CB500F and new 500 series of Honda motorcycles! Some would like to see a completely naked or even retro version as well, but no matter which Honda 500 series bike you choose you are sure to enjoy a great bike at a great price.

Up next on the Cool Wall is another Honda, the new Honda Gold Wing F6B as suggested in our "Suggest a Cool Wall Bike" thread.

Overall, people seem to like the new BMW R1200GS and the GS series, but has BMW created too many GS' and has so many now offered by other manufacturers watered down the market for them? Especially an expensive one? Time will tell... the question is, what is the next "new" tread going to be with bike design? I'm betting it is the comeback of the mid sized bike. What do you think?
