2015 #HarleyDavidson Road Glide on the TMW Cool Wall: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/BBS/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=51646  voting open! (No forum registration required)

2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide

Flaunt Massive Bad Attitude and Mile-Devouring Function...
Shaped by countless hours of wind tunnel testing, the new frame-mounted Road Glide motorcycle fairing features a triple splitstream vent that significantly reduces head buffeting while still providing comfortable airflow around the rider. The brilliant white beams of the Dual Daymaker Reflector LED headlamp blasts through the murkiest of nights. Centered in the inner fairing is the color screen of a Boom! ™ Box 4.3 infotainment system controlled by twin joysticks located on a new swept-back handlebar that puts the rider in a commanding, comfortable position. A High Output Twin Cam 103™ V-Twin engine burbles through two chrome mufflers, its abundant torque always on tap with just a twist of the throttle. Touring features include One-Touch hard saddlebags, cruise control, easy-to-read gauges, adjustable air-ride rear suspension and new ergonomic hand controls with intuitive design and improved tactile feel.
The attitude and mile devouring ride that made the Road Glide motorcycle the choice of many, is back... now with more power, more function and a sleek, new menacing look. The 2015 Project Rushmore Road Glide and Road Glide Special.
Select premium features elevate the performance and style of the Road Glide from the base model. These enhancements include the premium Boom! Box 6.5GT infotainment system with touch screen and GPS navigation, Reflex Linked Brakes with ABS and hand- adjustable low-profile rear suspension. An exclusive gloss Black painted inner fairing (Denim fairing Black Denim models) and hand- applied pinstriping move the styling up a notch.

2015 Moto Guzzi Audace is now up on the Cool Wall this week: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/BBS/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=51351  VOTING OPEN, so vote today.

http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcycles/2015/2015-Moto-Guzzi-Audace.htm

MOTO GUZZI AUDACE

The new Moto Guzzi Audace states its rebel spirit immediately simply with its name.


 It is a musclebike designed to enhance the spectacular performance of the 1400 cc "Made in Mandello" big block, the largest V Twin ever manufactured in Europe.

Nothing more than pure riding pleasure led the development of a model where the best available technology is at the service of performance and which has a look with a strong personality, a carbon look which takes on that dark soul already introduced on the Moto Guzzi V7 II Stone and reconfirmed with the elements of the Dark Rider personalisation designed for the "750" from Mandello.

2015 Moto Guzzi Audace - Coolness Factor = 85.3%
Featured: June 12th, 2015 - June 19th 2015
Most popular vote category: Awesome


Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/BBS/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=51351
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcycles/2015/2015-Moto-Guzzi-Audace.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 Moto Guzzi Audace is:

Awesome (3 points) 59% [ 20 ]
Cool (2 points) 38% [ 13 ]
Uncool (1 point) 3% [ 1 ]
Fail (0 point) 0% [ 0 ]

Total votes: 34


= 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.

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

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.

The Original and Biggest Motorcycle MPG Guide now even Bigger!

http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/MotorcycleFuelEconomyGuide.htm

Back in 2005, Total Motorcycle introduced the world's FIRST motorcycle MPG Guide. And it was TMW that got the manufacturers to release MPG data to consumers and Governments today thanks to this very guide! Now in version 4.0 it features over 6,000 bikes from 80 years (1934 to 2014) with data in both MPG and L/100km. You just found the original, often imitated, never duplicated, best MPG guide out there: Total Motorcycle Fuel Efficiency Guide: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/MotorcycleFuelEconomyGuide.htm

2015 Honda CBR650F on the TMW Cool Wall: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/BBS/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=51536 voting open! (No forum registration required)

http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcycles/2015/2015-Honda-CBR650F.htm

2015 Honda CBR650F

About Limits...
Bikes used to be arranged around how big their engines were: 250, 500, 750 or 1000cc. Then inflation set in, and 500s became 600s, and the 750s became 800s. Unless you were racing in a special displacement grouping, it all seemed a little silly. Didn’t we all just want a great motorcycle, regardless of some arbitrary engine size?

 Well, that’s what you get with the CBR650F, and why riders find is such a joy. A truly fun ride at a great price, it's both practical and fun—what Honda does like no one else. Its inline-four engine specifically tuned for low-to-midrange torque, delivering a powerband that’s suited for a wide range of riding styles. Weekday commuter, weekend sport riding, long trips, short hauls, solo or with a passenger—the CBR650F does it all.

CBR650F - built for both the young and the young at heart
Who says that practical, comfortable, everyday bikes can’t generate the adrenalin rush of their RR brethren? Case in point, the CBR650F - its high torque, in-line four-cylinder engine, tuned for strong low-end, mid-range and top-end power, provides tremendous drive off the line and out of turns.
