TOTAL MOTORCYCLE COOL WALL - 2013 RESULTS

WHAT ARE THE 2013 RESULTS?
This is how the voting has turned out for all models that appeared on the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall in 2013.


HOW ARE THESE FINAL RESULTS DETERMINED?
The final Total Motorcycle Cool Wall cool factor results are determined by public vote, debate and review in the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall forum. To determine the fate of a model up for placement on the TMW Motorcycle Cool Wall just vote, debate and participate in the discussion.

Get excited! For 2013 we are making EVERY VOTE COUNT with our new Total Motorcycle Cool Wall standings!

Here's how we are improving our math. Every time you vote Awesome you are giving the bike 3 points. Cool gives 2 points, Uncool gives 1, and Fail gives zero. At the end of the voting week we will mulitply the number of votes in each category by the points for that category and then derive an average voting number, out of 3, for that bike. Finally, we will then normalize this average voting number against the maximum possible of 3 to give the bike a standing from 0 to 100. (Zero would mean 100% Fail votes while 100 would mean 100% Awesome votes.)

The standardization of all bikes to a scale of 0 to 100 will now give the opportunity to rank the entire year's list of bikes for the year. And best of all, it allows each and every vote to have meaning to the tally.

Here's an example:
Awesome: 8 votes x 3 points = 24 points
Cool: 12 votes x 2 points = 24 points
Uncool: 3 votes x 1 point = 3 points
Fail: 2 votes x 0 points = 0 points
Sum total: 51 points
Total number of votes: 25
Average points per vote: 51/25 = 2.04
Standardized to a maximum of 3 points: 2.04/3 x 100 = 68
...Therefore, this bike ranks a Coolwall Factor of 68!

Yeah, we know, the math looks a bit complicated, so if you don't care to figure it out then just remember - EVERY VOTE COUNTS - so get voting!


See our Total Motorcycle Cool Wall Page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyclecoolwall.htm for the ranking of all the bikes that have appeared on the Motorcycle Cool Wall.

REMEMBER: New models are placed on the TMW Cool Wall every Friday!

Wow, that was a close vote! Moto Guzzi sure has hit the nail on the head with this new bike, let's hope it gets people into the MG sales rooms and discovering the brand for the first time.

...And with our new 2013 voting system EVERY VOTE counts!

Here is how the votes were at the end of the first week:

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Moto Guzzi California 1400 Custom is...

Awesome: 21 votes x 3 points = 63
Cool: 20 votes x 2 points = 40
Uncool: 5 votes x 1 point = 5
Fail: 0 votes x 0 points = 0

Points awarded: 108
Total votes: 46

(Points) 108 / 46 (votes) = 2.34 / 3 (maximum point score) = .7826 x 100 = 78.3%*

The Coolness Factor = 78.3%

*Add up all the points, divide it by the number of votes, divide it again by the maximum vote point (3), times 100 = %

2013 Cleveland CycleWerks (CCW) Heist - Coolness Factor = 56.7%

Most popular vote category: Awesome

Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... -Heist.htm

Wow, no matter how you slice or dice it, the 2013 Cleveland CycleWerks (CCW) Heist demands attention and you can see that in spades as Tha Heist also broke our record for the most votes in 7 days on the Cool Wall, extremely well done!

From the quite ying/yang of votes Tha Heist isn't the bike for everyone and many are not willing to give is a second look but a surprising amount seem to like the idea. In fact, the most voted on category was: Awesome. Which does speak loudly that American companies can complete on a price level with what is coming out of China. I couldn't tell you if a CCW is better built as it is assembled in the USA vs something assembled in China, but I do hope so.

Overall, tha Heist may not be the perfect $3k bike for everyone, but isn't is great to know there are companies like CCW that give you a choice and the more choices, the better for all.

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Cleveland CycleWerks Heist is...

Awesome (3 points) 43% [ 78 ]
Cool (2 points) 18% [ 33 ]
Uncool (1 point) 6% [ 11 ]
Fail (0 point) 33% [ 61 ]
Total votes : 183

And with our new voting system we get:

Average points per vote: 183/311 = 1.70
Standardized to a maximum of 3 points: 1.70/3 x 100 = 56.7

...Therefore, the 2013 Cleveland CycleWerks (CCW) Heist ranks a Coolwall Factor of 56.7!

Quite an interesting turnout, not quite the 230+ votes of the CCW, which I do suspect is a little suspect; but anyways it does go to show the Hyosung just isn't as popular as the CCW for interest sake, but that is secondary to the vote result, which is: COOL FACTOR: 61.0%


Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Hyosung GV250 is...

Awesome (3 points) 9% [ 3 ]
Cool (2 points) 40% [ 14 ]
Uncool (1 point) 26% [ 9 ]
Fail (0 point) 26% [ 9 ]

Total votes : 35
Total Score: 64

35/64 = 1.83 / 3 * 100% = 61.0%

Great voting result and discussion! There was a time when all black cruisers were considered "too basic and borning" so the flashy paint schemes came out (check out H-D's "Big Flake" colors and Victory's colors over the years). Now it seems black is the very instyle option (never really went out of style but it's more popular now). White bikes are also quite hot today as well, when years ago you hardly ever saw white offered. Are we getting bored of the colors?

Here is the turn out:

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Suzuki Boulevard C90T B.O.S.S. is: 58.1%

Awesome (3 points) 20% [ 7 ]
Cool (2 points) 43% [ 15 ]
Uncool (1 point) 29% [ 10 ]
Fail (0 point) 9% [ 3 ]

Total number of votes: 35
Average points per vote: 61/35 = 1.74
Standardized to a maximum of 3 points: 1.74/3 x 100 = 58.095

Great discussion again this week! With comments like: It's a "generation gap", "Steve Mcqueen wannabe" bike to "It's the type of bike we dreamed of when I was a youngster" we can see who Triumph is really targeting here with this model. But in the end, it comes down the votes and here they are:

Thanks everyone for voting and discussing this brand new never-before-seen model from Harley-Davidson! Even though I liked the bike I wasn't sure how it was going to come out in the votes. You will notice with the new voting system every vote counted and there were quite a few fail and uncool votes that added in to the final results so here we go:

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Harley-Davidson FXSB Breakout is...

Awesome (3 points) 42% [ 16 ]
Cool (2 points) 24% [ 9 ]
Uncool (1 point) 18% [ 7 ]
Fail (0 point) 16% [ 6 ]

Total number of votes: 38

Average points per vote: 57/38 = 1.5
Standardized to a maximum of 3 points: 1.5/3 x 100 = 50
...Therefore, this bike ranks a Coolwall Factor of 50.0%

Does Harley-Davidson have a winner on it's hands? Or a wash? Even though the #1 voted category was Awesome, the 50% result is a so-so for it.

Cool (2 points) 39% 39% [ 17 ]

...Therefore, this bike ranks a Coolwall Factor of 43.9%

Quite a good voter turnout on quite a unique new motorcycle! With the Scattergory of votes and a 43.9% end result I am not sure how the CTX700 will really do for Honda, it's a risky move, but it's good to see innovation in the market. Honda has never been a risk taking company but they have been proving this axiom wrong now for the past few years (with good and bad results). So why the change at Honda? Is a riskier business plan good for Honda?

Quite a good voter turnout and really nice discussion on this one! Great job gang. It seems like everyone agrees that the V-Star 650 is a good bike and even with it's little dated looks still turns heads enough to get people to buy one and start riding on it as their first bike as well. While there are in deed a few things that Yamaha could improve on the V-Star, it's pretty good value and maybe doing so the price would go up too much and ruin it's value?

The 650cc segment is a strong one and overall the V-Star 650 competes well in it.

Unique. Different. Rugged. Honest. Heavy. Basic. Pricey. These are words that describe that URAL Gear-up; but few words could describe the feeling it would be to commute to work with the Ural Gear in the snow, up hills and through forests to get there.

A great discussion this week on this classic motorcycle! Is it retro? Is it outdated? Is it Cool? Should be it updated? Should it remain unchanged for another 50 years? If you haven't added your 2 cents in the discussion, what are you waiting for? :2cents:

Does the Thunderbird live up to it's historical name? Will it leave a mark for itself in the motorcycle world? These are the questions that were discussed and it's a hair-splitting debate. It is easy to look back into history with 20/20 hindsight, but when you are living it the answers are never as clear.

Notes: Amazingly we only have 2 bikes in our 2013 Cool Wall lineup that have had 0 fail votes and they are both Moto Guzzi's! In fact, this particular Moto Guzzi with it's final score of 83.3% rockets it up to #1 SPOT on our Cool Wall making it THE most cool bike to date. It's unfortunate then there are not many riders taking advantage of such an awesome bike as there are few on the roads, but maybe that is what makes the Griso so cool too?
