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

Awesome (3 points) 41% [ 16 ]
Cool (2 points) 23% [ 9 ]
Uncool (1 point) 15% [ 6 ]
Fail (0 point) 21% [ 8 ]

Total votes : 39


Average points per vote: 72/39 = 1.85
Standardized to a maximum of 3 points: 1.85/3 x 100 = 61.5
...Therefore, this bike ranks a Coolwall Factor of 61.5%

Notes: Great discussion this week on MV Agusta's latest offering, the Rivale 800, which I had to look up the Italian work "Rivale" and it means in English: "Pizza dough"... lol. No, actually it doesn't, did I fool you? It's mean Rival, like "he is my rival".

I hated to have voted fail on it, and I was definitely the odd man out there as when I did, there were 0 fail votes. Usually I wait till the end of the week to vote so I don't influence votes, with 8 fail votes in, maybe I voted too early? No matter, the Rivale 800 did very well, with Awesome being the most voted by far and the bike ending up at a very respectable 61.5% TMW Coolness Factor.

Next bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!

Uncool (1 point) 13% [ 4 ]

Standardized to a maximum of 3 points: 0.87/3 x 100 = 28.8
...Therefore, this bike ranks a Coolwall Factor of 28.8%

Notes: Wow, quite the different turn out vs the MV Agusta we had up last week! While the new MV Agusta didn't do great (61.5%) the Benelli absolutely didn't. Seems many can't get over the fact Benelli has entered uncharted Chinese made waters and now with 150cc and 250cc Benelli's "Made in China" what direction will the company take? Cheap and Cheerful or Cheap and God-aweful? No matter the end result, the Chinese Benelli appears to have an uphill battle to fight on their hands.

Commentary: What a quirky new motorcycle from Honda with a quirky name gets quite a great (but quirky) result of 67.5% Cool. It's cheap, it's cheerful but will it have a lasting effect? Will it sell? Will riders connect with it? Most voters think so but only time will tell...

Commentary: I don't think I could have said it any better than what forum member sapual did: "That is why it is cool. People will buy these and they will be a round for years, because for those people it invoked everything they want in a bike. It won't get changed much as the market demands that it does not, They want a classic bike, but not the "crumb" that goes along with a true classic. They want to look like ton up boys, but not spend hours doing their hair and then cleaning oil spills before getting the bike out of the garage. they want to go to the pub and have a pint and know the bike is not so dangerous it will kill them. They want brekkie runs with like minded folk who are happy to run slow in a big group. They want nostalgia, and most will not care about CC's or high tech, as long as it starts first time and the service costs are not to bad." - sapual

Commentary: Some feel it's unique, others think it's a cheap knockoff of a higher end (MV Agusta) brand. No matter what it is/could be based on, it's Yamaha's first 3-cylinder bike in over 30 years. Yamaha says more 3-cylinder bikes are coming out, it will be interesting to follow this new trend in the future!

NOTES: A manufacturer can do all the market research they want but you never truly will know if a model will be successful or not till it hits the showroom floors and how riders react to it. There were many great models even I thought would be successful that turned out to be not great sellers (Honda 599/919 for example). Fair or not, sales (money) talks.

NOTES: It is always interesting to see how many posts the discussion gets vs how many votes are posted. In the most interesting bikes, you get a lot of both, but as the bike approaches the "meh" option it still gets high votes but not a lot of talk about it. Just an interesting view point and I think somehow the 2013 BMW R1200RT fits into this category. I wonder if this theory would also translate to a bike night as well. Now I can't see how this bike ranked higher (69.9%) than the new FZ9 (68.7%) or the Triumph Thunderbird (64.4%) I am sure either of those bikes would draw much more attention, but that's just IMHO.

NOTES: Victory knocks off a what most think is a pretty generic custom with little to offer over other manufacturers. But it still ranks as cool on our wall because for Victory it is something different in their lineup and it's well priced too. Love it or hate it, it's still pretty cool, but Victory could have made it even cooler we think.

Your Coolness Factor of the 2014 Indian Chieftain is..

Awesome (3 points) 38% [ 20 ]
Cool (2 points) 26% [ 14 ]
Uncool (1 point) 30% [ 16 ]
Fail (0 point) 6% [ 3 ]

Total votes : 53

= a Coolwall Factor of 65.4%


NOTES: Guess who's back, back again, Indian's back... Wow, quite a slew of votes for the Indian with a slim majority to the Awesome side. Quite a few uncool votes as well, which from the replies riders were expecting more of a home run rather than a base hit. But it's early in the game and Indian has come out a singin'! Here batter, batter!

Next bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Aprilia RSV4 R APRC is..

Awesome (3 points) 60% [ 24 ]
Cool (2 points) 30% [ 12 ]
Uncool (1 point) 3% [ 1 ]
Fail (0 point) 8% [ 3 ]

Total votes : 40

= a Coolwall Factor of 80.8%


NOTES: Wow, a great voter turnout = a great voter result! 80.8% rockets the 2013 Aprilia RSV4 R APRC up to our #4 spot on the 2013 Cool Wall (#1 is 83%, #2 82% and #3 81%). For a bike some have called "a modern UJM" the Aprilia really does stand out to the majority of riders. Could be the wonderful V4 engine, might be a high quality (and class) Aprilia name or maybe even the price. The magic is definitely there whatever it is.

Next bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!

Your Coolness Factor of the 2014 Harley-Davidson FLHXS Street Glide Special is..

Awesome (3 points) 14% [ 3 ]
Cool (2 points) 57% [ 12 ]
Uncool (1 point) 24% [ 5 ]
Fail (0 point) 5% [ 1 ]

Total votes : 21

= a Coolwall Factor of 60.3%

NOTES: Harley-Davidson (always remember to put that - between them, H-D gets testy if you forget...it's a true story you'll have to ask me about sometime) turns a corner and introduces their first High Output and water cooled Big Twin engine. Will H-D find new rider favor with this new design or turn away die-hard loyals? Overall, I did expect more interest in the new 2014 model and I know that Harley-Davidson does read this thread as well so I wonder what they are thinking too... I'm sure they are gathering rider feedback all over the place but 60.3% Coolness isn't that bad of an ending.

Your Coolness Factor of the 2014 Yamaha V-Star 250 is

Awesome (3 points) 38% [ 9 ]
Cool (2 points) 33% [ 8 ]
Uncool (1 point) 8% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 21% [ 5 ]

Total votes : 24

= a Coolwall Factor of 60.5%

Notes: It is interesting to note that while there isn't a lot common with the V-Star 250 and the 2014 Harley-Davidson FLHXS Street Glide Special we had up before it, they both finished so close to each other in end results (60.3% and 60.5%). Another interesting fact is that you can buy 5 or 6 V-Star 250's for 1 2014 Harley-Davidson FLHXS Street Glide Special. Sometimes price alone doesn't make something "cooler".

This week's bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!
