Notes: Our readers have spoken and Moto Guzzi has hits another home run with the new 2016 Moto Guzzi Eldorado! Even our most picky motorcycle connoisseur loved it saying "Pure awesomeness", and trust me, that's pretty darn amazing rating for ceemes. (haha). And if that's not even, even our Harley-Davidson affetto would consider the Eldorado to be in his top 3 list of replacements for his H-D! What to go MG!

Notes: Did it come as a surprise to you that few actually hated this new H-D and the vast majority loved it? After 44 years, H-D steps up and finally makes a dirt tracker race only model again, not yet for the street mind you, but I can see a street-version in the works in the near future. As blues2cruise noted, it is good to see Harley-Davidson branching out to reach even more potential buyers, I guess I'll have to create a "Race" sub-heading for the 2017 Harley's now... lol.

Notes: Like many of our great members, each week, I too find the Cool Wall fascinating on what bike will be up, how it will be voted on and what riders think of it. Sometimes, I'm quite shocked how the votes go, other times, I could have bet it would go this way or that. What I'm always happy about is the great comments that are left. Which brings me to this week's bike, the 2017 KTM 500 EXC-F. A bike that's so top of it's game and takes some serious off-road skill to ride that many of us won't be able to ride or enjoy it, but yet, we can see past that and vote it up because of what it is. Next week is a completely new bike (introduced this morning) from the 2017 Yamaha line, I'm curious how that does... let's see if my bet pays off... haha.

Notes: It's funny, you know; you can really tell read a result of a bike that riders are just a little uncertain on how it will do. The new 2017 Yamaha FZ-10 did finish very well, with a score of 72% cool, but there wasn't a lot of comments or votes (might just be the summer riding season) and the votes were split but firmly in Cool territory. I think this is a bike that's hard to judge on studio photos and hard specs alone and will have to be judged by eye and the seat of the pants. What do you think?

Notes: Wow, usually you don't have a split vote between uncool and awesome. Just like the Brexit vote last night, this vote and the opinions are quite split! Riders would like to see an updated engine and retro gauges. Yes, that sounds odd when you want something very new and very old as well and I bet that confuses the heck out of Yamaha! lol. On a side note, I think the SCR950 competes vs the Triumph Bonneville T120 on the showroom floor, it will be interesting to see how it sells.

Notes: I don't think we have ever had a bike on the cool wall hit the even-steven 50% mark before! But that makes perfect sense for the 2016 Hyosung GT650R as it's a bike that has so much potential that isn't realized. V-Twin, check. Value priced, check. Looks good, check. But it's dated and desperately needs R&D to keep up with the German, Japanese and Italian bikes. We all know Hyosung can improve the model, so Hyosung, don't let us down for 2017/18!

= a Coolwall Factor of 38.6%


Notes: 12,500 sold per year. I guess they are not going away anytime soon and many would be cheering that fact facing others who would be boo'ing it as well. The 2017 Can-Am Spyder F3-S Daytona 500 opens up the market further to the "youthful" (riding?) public and to more sales. Acceptance in the motorcycle community is mixed and it makes me wonder how the big automotive forums would vote on a Can-Am Spyder and the discussions they would have about it! Will the Spyder be around in 15 years? Will it replace 2-wheelers as the age of 100% electric flows upon us?

Notes: Long in the tooth, needs updating. If you want the largest engine sized, mass produced motorcycle currently in production today then you found it. At 2300cc, it's excessive in everyway and may go down in history like a the VMAX. What a bike for it's time.

Notes: When BMW launched the NineT a couple years ago it was a really nice change to their design philosophy, "due something differently but retro" and the NineT, while a little too expensive, was received very well and did well in their line up. Now BMW brings out another version, the Scrambler showing what the NineT customization is capable of, and the result is a Cool looking bike that very few would hate and quite a lot love. Well done BMW! And I'm with Grey Thumper, let's bring out some more Retro bikes!

Notes: Indian crates something unique and custom, sadly, the 50s style is now a niche market. The 2017 Indian Roadmaster isn't everyone's cup of tea with a sea of green plastic and big touch screen tech package that may be outdated already. That said, Polaris has really grown into and expanded the Indian brand and they have something for almost every rider. At a score of 59.5% isn't a great score but it does go to show that every vote counts, so make sure you vote each week. :)

Notes: Dirt bikes are not every rider's cup of tea and I suspect it's not because we don't like them, it's the unfamiliarity of the class. Unfortunately, not all of us get to start out on one, myself included, and see a dirt bike as something alien. That's a shame as many riders who either start out on one or do both say their riding skills really benefit from it. Beta, a small but growing company, makes some of the best dirt bikes around and the new RS-S line has A LOT of potential for off-road, on-road, dual sport, ADV or even adventure touring.

It's amazing how well a job Polaris is doing with the company and how far they have come in such a short time to revive the brand. Lots of road to go still but at least they are in the fast lane...

2016 Yamaha XSR900 - Coolness Factor = 71.1%
Featured: August 19th - August 26th, 2016
Most popular vote category: Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=53495
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... XSR900.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Yamaha XSR900 is:

Awesome (3 points) 30% [ 9 ]
Cool (2 points) 57% [ 17 ]
Uncool (1 point) 10% [ 3 ]
Fail (0 point) 3% [ 1 ]

Total votes: 30

= a Coolwall Factor of 71.1%


Notes: If I can sum-up in two words what the Total Motorcycle community thinks of the new Yamaha XSR900 modern-retro bike, it would be "Yes, please!". 87% of members say the bike is at least Cool if not awesome. Not a bad prediction at all for Yamaha's sales! People love the classic Yamaha yellow paint job as well. Personally, I wish they could do something about the awkward position and look/design of the gauge mostly. But then it would be more retro-modern-retro of a bike I guess! lol.


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

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight 107/114 Engines is:

Uncool (1 point) 4% [ 1 ]

Notes: Like Paula Abdul's song "Two steps forward, one step back", Harley-Davidson two-steps along with their new 2017 Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight 107/114 Engines. By remaining true to H-D heritage but complying to ever increasing government regulations, H-D pulls a rabbit out of the hat and does the nearly impossible. Will we see another bigger version in 5 years time? Will the Milwaukee-Eight be the last of the air cooled line? Will the new engine live up to the hype?

2017 MV Agusta F4Z Zagato - Coolness Factor = 60.6%

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 MV Agusta F4Z Zagato is:

Awesome (3 points) 36% [ 4 ]
Cool (2 points) 27% [ 3 ]
Uncool (1 point) 18% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 18% [ 2 ]

Total votes: 11

= a Coolwall Factor of 60.6%


Notes: Is it a piece of art or a motorcycle? Form over function? Will it ever be ridden? As the votes show, it is very polarizing both in design and idea. Does the 2017 MV Agusta F4Z Zagato show us the future of motorcycle design or some far out 1950's idea of flying atomic cars to come? No matter what the F4Z will bring, it will always be talked about.

Notes: Character, style, class... at a price. What's that worth to you? The new 2017 Norton Commando 961 Sport MKII impressed our readers, they loved artsy clean retro style, take-no-prisoners specs, heritage, high quality build and top notch parts. What's not to love? Well, that's the fact it's x2 the cost of the more common Triumph and the smallness of the Norton company brings risk is ownership. In the end, the same question remains, Character, style, class... at a price. What's that worth to you?

Notes: Triumph makes some great bikes and are well known for their 3-cylinder engines, unique retro styling and British heritage... The original Triumph Tiger, a mid-sized adventure bike, started them onto the less traveled path... But somewhere along the way, there was a fork in the road and now they are lost. Our readers agree, the new 2017 Triumph Tiger Explorer XRt is just not right.

Notes: Opening doors. The new 2017 Hyosung GD250R (and the GD series) is starting to get Hyosung even more noticed by riders, in a good way. With innovation, technology, style and a price that doesn't break the bank. Add that with Hyosung's new EZ-suit system and the 2017 Hyosung GD250R might just be a big winner.

Notes: Brutal Brutale. Rare. Pricy. Exotic. As one reader put it " Mind you I figure this is a bike that is going to cripple you one way or another, either from riding it too long and cramping into to position or it turning around and biting you when you least expect it, its certainly going to cripple ones pocket book.". haha.
