2 Week Special: The Top 3 Bikes of 2015 - READERS CHOICE

TIME TO VOTE FOR THE READER'S CHOICE "Coolest Bike of 2015" Award!!

2015 was an amazing year for new model releases from the manufacturers and our Cool Wall was chock full-o-stuff. The Indian Chief Vintage, Honda Africe Twin, SV650, XSR700, Scout Sixty, Lusso 800, Chief Dark Horse, Empulse TT, Spyder F3T and the GD250N... what next year will bring? Well, we already have had a 2017 on the Cool Wall as a new year tease.

Some models were really big hits with our members, others, were bottom of the bucket! Few who would have guessed Triumph and Moto Guzzi would be at the top of the charts in 2015 (Guzzi, KTM and Indian was 2014).

So I'm proud to present the Top 3 Coolest Motorcycles of 2015 below that you voted for during the year, but which one will be the READER'S CHOICE?

You have two weeks to discuss, vote and decide!
(You can vote on multiple ones as well if you just can't decide)

Ha Ha Ha! That's so weird, eh?
Those goddamned Italians. Can't run a country but they sure can design a good looking motor vehicle.
At least you got a Triumph to vote for! What about us loyal Honda riders...?

I'd like a recount on some of those votes. How many accounts does Mike actually have?

LOL

Happy New Year!

Looks like there's a formula to a cool bike. Tick as many boxes as possible: wire wheels, a round headlight, classic styling, a standard riding position, and as much as possible, be a Guzzi. :wink:

LOL, yes, I couldn't believe that 3 out of 4 of the top 4 bikes were Guzzi's! Honestly, just because I own/ride one, I didn't bias the results. They (Guzzi) are just in the right niche at the right time (2015 the year of the retro standard). I do think 2016 might be the year of the Adventure bike, we will see.

Congratulations Triumph for bring the Bonnie up to date with a new engine and redesign! I'm sure our readers will be very much looking forward to seeing it at the Motorcycle Shows across the world shortly!

(I'll be seeing it Today for the first time, photos to come)
