TOTAL MOTORCYCLE COOL WALL - 2016 RESULTS
Now in our exciting 5th year!


WHAT ARE THE 2016 RESULTS?
This is how the voting has turned out for all models that appeared on the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall in 2016.


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.

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!

2016 Honda Bulldog Concept - Coolness Factor = 53.3%
Featured: January 8th - January 15th 2016
Most popular vote category: Awesome

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=52503
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... ulldog.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Honda Bulldog Concept is:

Awesome (3 points) 32% [ 8 ]
Cool (2 points) 28% [ 7 ]
Uncool (1 point) 20% [ 5 ]
Fail (0 point) 20% [ 5 ]

Total votes: 25

= a Coolwall Factor of 53.3%


Notes: Is the world ready for another shocking Japanese bike design? Will the Bulldog bring out non-riders to experience riding? Honestly, we don't know! But the Bulldog concept is both good, weird, odd, works and is broken all at the same time! If anything, the Bulldog shows us all that there is no limit to what future motorcycle design could hold. Are you in on the revolution?

Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2016 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!

Uncool (1 point) 21% [ 6 ]

Notes: Is it a cruiser? Is it a monster? Is it both? The new XDiavel has so many facets, both good, bad and the ugly, that there are parts that will appeal to some, none or many. It's sorta the Christmas Fruit Cake of bikes, you'll like something in it, but it may not be your first choice of dessert. (Did I just call a bike a Christmas fruit cake...well, that's a first! lol).

2016 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S - Coolness Factor = 78.2%

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S is:

Uncool (1 point) 12% [ 3 ]

= a Coolwall Factor of 78.2%


Notes: Value. The new Harley-Davidson value leader. Now that's not something you hear (or associate) with the big H-D. At $16699 USD/$19499 CAD the 2016 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S is not peanuts or cheap, but representative to their other models, amazingly, it is for what it offers. And it's that sweet Screamin’ Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ engine that makes it so. Can a rider buy a bike that offers more value than the 2016 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S from a competitor? Definitely. But if you are looking for the best bang for your buck H-D, you found it.

= a Coolwall Factor of 66.7%


Notes: After 40 years BMW has decided to re-introduce a small motorcycle to the market. Whether it was market insight, competition or the slowing economy it offers what riders want, choice. And I have to applaud BMW for offering choice in the small engine size end rather than just another "mid/large" sized bike. New riders will really benefit from that decision and bring younger stock into the BMW pen. Thinking about this, this is what Harley-Davidson is doing as well with their Street 500/750 models and in a small way, Indian with their Scout. It will be interesting to see how this trend evolves...

= a Coolwall Factor of 57.3%


Notes: It is interesting to see how marketing hype can either be boost a or a backfire. Back on our 2014 Cool Wall the 2015 Indian Scout finished #3 of the year at 85.4% cool. In 2016, the "same" bike made by Victory finished 57.3% cool. A swing of almost 30% is huge and why was that? Victory really put a lot of hype behind the Project 156 bike getting riders uber excited about it's launch. What we got was a better bike than the Indian Scout, but not at all what riders wanted. Maybe Project 157 will be what we all wanted.

Final Thoughts: Our moderator JackoftheGreen sums this up nicely: "The official 2-Up touring bike of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory and more fun than a ping pong table." This is one bike that will confuse the heck out of the grandpa's but delight those young-whipper-snapers. At 6'4" I have to take a #selfie with it! Honda Grom's a good seller, now Kawasaki has one up on it. Pricing TBA, which could change things (good/bad).

Notes: Harley-Davidson resurrects a touring legend from the past, the Road Glide Ultra. Some love it, others are "meh" and a few are just not in love with it. So, with our first 3-way tie of Awesome/Cool/Uncool in years, what is the big H-D gonna do about it to make it more appealing? What does H-D need to do about it? Speak up or forever hold your V-Twin.

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Dodge Tomahawk Viper V10 SRT GTS is:


Awesome (3 points) 34% [ 12 ]
Cool (2 points) 9% [ 3 ]
Uncool (1 point) 6% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 51% [ 18 ]

Total votes: 35


= a Coolwall Factor of 41.9%


Notes: April Fools! Sadly, there is not another crazy Dodge Tomahawk coming out from Dodge this year, but what a polarizing bike it was in 2003! I'm not sure if the 51% fail vote was due to the bike or my April fools joke! LOL.

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Yamaha 04GEN Design Concept is:

Awesome (3 points) 8% [ 2 ]

Uncool (1 point) 21% [ 5 ]

= a Coolwall Factor of 26.4%


Notes: The market jingle from Chevy "Like a Rock" comes to mind, but more along the lines on how fast the vote dropped on the new 2017 Yamaha 04GEN Design Concept fell! Lots of negative comments on the transparent panel design (which, I actually think is pretty cool) and the very strong connection to the anime styling... I'm not sure if Yamaha will bring something like this to North America, but Honda did bring the NM4 Vultus here and that was clearly based on Japanese anime so you never know...

Notes: Yay, not only finally a Cool vote, but a bike that deserves to have it as well. The 2016 Kawasaki KLX110 is not the fastest, flashiest or best handling bike out there but it is a quintessential foundation for those lucky enough to learn to ride at an early age, and that's cool enough for us.

= a Coolwall Factor of 64.0%


Notes: It's hard not to vote cool on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, they have the sound and the look most of us love. But, H-D is getting, dare I say, a little dated and stale with their models. They need to not only WOW us again with something amazing, but also refresh their lineup to be more modern but yet not lose their heritage. It's a hard task, but H-D once ruled the motorcycle world where company wanted to copy EVERY bike they had and riders loved each model. Take us back to the future again Harley-Davidson!

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Royal Enfield Classic Desert Storm is:

= a Coolwall Factor of 64.7%


Notes: One of the oldest (if not the oldest) current classic bike in production with only few changes over decades. Did you know Royal Enfield has a huge cult following in countries like India where it is akin to Harley-Davidson in America? The majority of TMW readers agree, it's a cool bike, but could use a little something to make it a little more special.

Notes: A very controversial model if our voting system tells us anything! Riders feel isn't quite possible Victory is running out of gas in the ideas department here as the new 2016 Victory Magnum X-1 Stealth Edition fails to impress many. Can Victory pull a the magical rabbit it desperately needs out of a hat for 2017 model year or is it the curtain call? Let's cross our fingers for this great company.

= a Coolwall Factor of 60.9%


Notes: A Dual Sport before it's time. Still looks great today and still will match any competitor adventure bike specs you throw at it. The purchase of Benelli in 2013 by a foreign company hurt their sales/image and since have pulled out of the North American market. Remember if you vote Fail in the polls, don't be shy, post why! :)
