2014 Ducati Streetfighter 848 - Coolness Factor = 79.4%
Featured: May 23rd, 2014 - May 30th, 2014
Most popular vote category: Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=49365
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... er-848.htm

Coolness Factor of the 2014 Ducati Streetfighter 848 is:

Awesome (3 points) 44% [ 15 ]
Cool (2 points) 50% [ 17 ]
Uncool (1 point) 6% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 0% [ 0 ]

Total votes : 34


= a Coolwall Factor of 79.4%

NOTES: An interesting mixed set of member responses for the 848, but still all positive. It just feels like Ducati has more practicality they could put into the 848 than they did. Could explain the disappearance of many of the Streetfighter models. JStark47 and Grey Thumper mentioned Triumph could compete with the Street Triple for around the same price and $1200 more for the Street Triple R, gives a buyer something to think about...

= a Coolwall Factor of 70.0%

NOTES: A very interesting result that says "very cool" but in between the lines we have a lot of "not sure if I like this" part, design or style from our readers. Even though the results are 70% Cool, I would suspect they will change up or down once it comes out and people can ride it... A "time will tell" bike for sure and that means, Ducati took quite the gamble with it... will it come up craps?

Most popular vote category: Uncool

Your Coolness Factor of the 2014 Hyosung GT250R is:

Cool (2 points) 44% [ 14 ]
Uncool (1 point) 47% [ 15 ]
Fail (0 point) 9% [ 3 ]

Total votes : 32

= a Coolwall Factor of 44.8%

NOTES: In a recessionary marketplace you have to be competitive not only in price but in product. While the GT250R is a good product it needs to be priced more competitively as more desirable offerings from Honda, Suzuki and Kawasaki have come along since it's launch for only a few hundred dollars more. So what Hyosung needs to do is drop the GT250R's price down or offer even more for the same price as the 44% cool result shows.

NOTES: Not a lot of votes in the July 1st/4th long weekend for the Beta, but it did finish quite well and well deservedly so. With a new engine and a caring company, Beta is defiantly on the right track. "Beta engineers have strived to provide innovative products that inspire, excite, and perform. 2015 is no different in that they continue to provide their customers with new models that continue to advance in both quality and features. - Beta"

NOTES: A great turn out of a bike that's just released from EBR! With the 1190SX so close in specs to the 2015 KTM 1290 Superduke I'm sure we will see a head-to-head competition soon. You couldn't go wrong choosing either bike though. What a great time to be looking at high-end V-Twin bikes!

NOTES: Cool looking, but falls short on a few things to make it even better. Our readers thought that a bigger tank, lower weight and/or retro clocks would push the bike up for sure. For now, it's a cool bike, and one a rider would be quite happy with, but Yamaha could go even further to make it even better and personally, I'd like to see version 2.0 of the Bolt myself as well. :D

NOTES: Wow, what an interesting finish, I didn't expect a fail, but then again, it's a quite controversial vehicle and while it may not be everyone's cup of tea, we most likely all agree that innovation is a good thing. I'm sure we will see some Slingshots on the street especially at this price point and in time, we may come to accept a 3-wheeled vehicle as a (fill in the blank).

Ironically I call the very divided voting numbers (which we have here) the "slingshot Effect" where you have numbers on both sides of the fence. Just happens the vehicle is a Slingshot...

Indian sure has a stunner of a bike on their hands at a stunning price! 95% of voters thought it was cool... what more can you say about Indian's (under Polaris) new model from a new reborn brand?

NOTES: If you can get by the fact how Kawasaki is determining how they are defining the "30th Anniversary of the sportbike" then what we have here is "the most powerful production bike today" in a very special, limited, 300 model run. That itself is worth the Cool rating. But beyond that we have a mile burner capable of comfortable travel that will put smiles on your face for a million miles. Not bad at all Kawasaki!

NOTES: Back in the day, the Kawasaki Z series of motorcycles were the cream of the crop in terms of speed, technology and handling. Think of the "Z" as the GSXR for Kawasaki. With the Z series Kawasaki held speed records over Suzuki for decades. Today, the Z series, while still good, needs a little re-working to bring up it's status to what it truly deserves.

2015 Harley-Davidson FLRT Freewheeler - Coolness Factor = 40.5%
Featured: August 29th, 2014 - September 5th, 2014
Most popular vote category: Cool

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

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 Harley-Davidson FLRT Freewheeler is:

Awesome (3 points) 8% [ 3 ]
Cool (2 points) 38% [ 14 ]
Uncool (1 point) 22% [ 8 ]
Fail (0 point) 32% [ 12 ]

Total votes : 37

= a Coolwall Factor of 40.5%

NOTES: Quote the voter turn-out on the newest of Harley-Davidson offerings, another Trike called the Freewheeler! With our new voting system introduced almost 2 years ago it really shows how each vote counts. Even though the top category was Cool, overall we have a low 40.5% Cool rating thanks to the many uncool and fail votes. So what does this say about the new Harley-Davidson Freeweeler? Most likely it will be a slow seller that is either slightly ahead of it's time or just not right for the time. If you want one, I'd suggest to wait till they are cleared out.

Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!

NOTES: Wow, KTM nails one out of the park with the introduction of the 2014 KTM 1290 Super Duke R ABS! Impressive V-Twin power, cool KTM unique design and a "over the top" design philosophy only KTM can deliver. But, all that comes with a very high price... Awesome bike, but will it sell in any numbers at all?

Your Coolness Factor of the 2009 Kymco Venox 250 FI is:

Awesome (3 points) 18% [ 6 ]
Cool (2 points) 30% [ 10 ]
Uncool (1 point) 18% [ 6 ]
Fail (0 point) 33% [ 11 ]

Total votes : 33

= a Coolwall Factor of 44.4%

NOTES: Our readers held back no punches and were honest about how they felt about the Venox. "Oddly proportioned, chintzy details, and generally uncool looking." Other readers thought "I have not seen this 250 before and I like it. Looks great, dohc and liquid cooled. Decent price"... You can also read the TWM review of the Venox 250 back in the day here: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/reviews/ ... ruiser.htm ... overall, 44.4% isn't so bad for a 5 year old bike from Taiwan though.

Uncool (1 point) 40% [ 14 ]

NOTES: Wow, the big mega scooter from Suzuki get a big mega hammer on the results. At just 35.2% cool. I feel bad for it as I really think it deserves more, it's the scooter that started the "mega-scooter" class here in North America and really does offer riders (especially older one) who want to tour a real opportunity to do so on a light bike with lots of luggage room. But for looked, price and performance, I can see Suzuki has their work cut out for them.

2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer - Coolness Factor = 92.31%

Most popular vote category: Awesome

Coolness Factor of the 2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer is:

Awesome (3 points) 82% [ 31 ]
Cool (2 points) 16% [ 7 ]
Uncool (1 point) 2% [ 1 ]
Fail (0 point) 0% [ 0 ]

= a Coolwall Factor of 92.31%

NOTES: Wow, what a Cool Wall score as the 2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer shoots straight to the top of the charts for 2014! Moto Guzzi really has something very unique and very special on their hands at very reasonable price point. With the introduction this week of the 2015 Moto Guzzi V7 II, it will be interesting to see if we get even closer to that perfect 100%. With a 92.3% Cool Wall score, it's almost a duty to see a V7 Racer in real life if you haven't yet at the Motorcycle Shows or at a Guzzi Dealership.

NOTES: Five pages of comments and discussions really tells a real story of how popular this motorcycle is and how much of a splash it's made so far. Very few bikes have that much discussion on a launch and the new 2015 Kawasaki Ninja H2R Supercharged is already living up to it's fast and furious lifestyle. The question on everyone's mind is, what will the street version of this bike be like when it's announced?
