Notes: Completely unexpected amazing results for URAL on the Cool Wall. Tough, versatile, Russian built, like a tractor* (* with the same pros/cons). Riders would like it to be faster than recommended 70mph, but after riding one, I'm not sure I'd want to go faster than 70! LOL.

= a Coolwall Factor of 85.3%

Notes: Moto Guzzi hits a home run with the Audace muscle cruiser! Our readers were very happy with not a fail vote in site (and 97% of the vote was cool or awesome). It is rare that a cruiser ranks this high and appeals to so many, cruisers like sportbikes are a niche market. The only other cruiser to ever be voted this high was the 2015 Indian Scout which edged ahead by a hair (+0.1% higher vote)! If you are in the cruiser market either of these models would be an outstanding choice.

= a Coolwall Factor of 67.9%

Notes: A cool bike marred by a small detail. It's a shame that Yamaha went to so much effort to create a Café Racer variant of the Bolt that a simple square LCD gauge in a round display usurps the design flow. Other than this it looks good, rides well but it's ergo's are not for everyone. Overall, it seems 68% Cool is a very fitting result.

Notes: It's fortunate (or unfortunate) that Husqvarna's are quite an overlooked company. Husqvarna is Sweden's Harley-Davidson of the dirt, an a huge success story on the track. The FE501S brings everything Husqvarna knows about dirt to the street, with a super light weight bike, high-powered engine, it would be a real blast to ride and a true dual sport both on and off the road!

Notes: Roehr stood up and said to the work ""I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" and made his own way in the jungle; following the path forged by others like Erik Buell. The path of resistance isn't easy without market support, but there is a time and place for everything. After all, way back in the 90s, Apple was a fringe company that few even wanted to own (anyone remember the Crapple 2E?)

Notes: Harley-Davidson produces (and has produced) some of the most desirable rides on the planet. Did the get the new Road Glide right? A 59% Cool rating, which isn't bad is awful for any bike is for the big H-D. Surly at this price point with the full weight of the biggest R&D on the planet Harley-Davidson could make it at 80%... That said, it's a big ol' road burner and one that will eat up the miles without any effort. But there maybe better choices on the market...

Notes: Growing pains. If your the type who loves to jump on the technology bandwagon and must have the latest, newest gadget then you won't mind the $20k price to go 57 miles. But remember it's at least a 3.5 hour wait at the Starbucks while you recharge both you and the bike. That said, Victory is the first major manufacturer to jump into the electric bike arena with a full on production bike (thanks to their purchase of Brammo) and the door to the future of motorcycling is now open...

Notes: Lots of power, great custom looks, new Screamin' Eagle® Air-cooled, Twin Cam 110B engine and for just $3 or $4k more vs 100% more for a CVO model. I'm definitely thinking Harley-Davidson did a good thing by introducing the S Fat Custom line, hopefully they make it an option for all bikes in the future.

2016 Triumph Speed 94R - Coolness Factor = 72.7%

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Triumph Speed 94R is:


Awesome (3 points) 36% [ 8 ]
Cool (2 points) 45% [ 10 ]
Uncool (1 point) 18% [ 4 ]
Fail (0 point) 0% [ 0 ]

Total votes: 22

= a Coolwall Factor of 72.7%

Notes: To use a Brittish term, it's a bit of (Heinz) Spotted Dick (google that). It's pretty good, everyone likes it but it's not exactly new and can be improved. We would all like to see Triumph return to the "retro/traditional" twin round headlights and would like to see the engine a little more refined. But the overall design of the bike is quintessential British and is lovely.

= a Coolwall Factor of 81.0%

Notes: A truly spectacular result puts the new 2016 Indian Chief Vintage into the current 4th spot on the Cool Wall! Riders really like the new engine and the new Indian Motorcycle Company under Polaris. Indian will be very happy with this showing indeed! The other side of the coin the new Chief lost some votes on being a little too pricey and a little too "parade float like". What do you think?

= a Coolwall Factor of 59.8%

NOTES: A very interesting bike offered up by Ducati that many feel is the "red-headed stepchild in the attic". Did Ducati do enough to "revise it" and re-define it? Probably not. Is it a bad bike? Not really, it's purpose is a little muddy, it's design isn't really Ducati. The one thing that makes it cool is that it is different and the non-Ducati-Ducati.

= a Coolwall Factor of 41.7%

Notes: Sadly, some motorcycle model has to come dead last on the Cool Wall, and currently, that's the new 2016 Hyosung GD250N. And why is that? What makes a new model fail so badly in the eyes of riders everywhere? Surprisingly, it's not horsepower or weight. But the price. There are just too many good new and used bikes out there for around the same cost. Riders are willing to pick a new/used Honda CRF250, Honda CBR250R, Suzuki GW250, or a Kawawsaki Ninja 250 and that's an issue for the new GD250N.

= a Coolwall Factor of 45.8%

Notes: The Can-Am Spyder... is it a motorcycle or a car? Does it have all the benefits or the drawbacks of both? Our readers and riders are confused as well. This is the 5th Can-Am Spyder that's been on our Cool Wall in the past 4 years, their average rating was 45.2%, so the new F3T gets a 45.8%... maybe the traction of three wheels just isn't enough to pull it up the Cool Wall?

= a Coolwall Factor of 52.8%

Notes: The result turned out to be very, "meh", but I think CCW will still be happy with a 52.8% vote. It's a "around $3k" Chinese bike competing in a world of world class manufacturer's and if you look at it that way, it's most likely the highest rated Chinese bike out there! The design is a amalgamation of every other manufacturer's design successes, which is sad, but in a way early manufacturers copied the designs of those more successful. (ie, Honda/Yamaha/Kawasaki in the late 70's early 80's copied the Harley look). So maybe this is just a repeat of a 40 year old record?
