Welcome to the New Motorcycle.com

Share this Article

When you checked out Motorcycle.com today you probably noticed things don’t look like they used to. Don’t reboot you computer or visit your family doctor – it’s not you, it’s us.

In the age of the Internet you can’t stay still for long, so we’ve redesigned Motorcycle.com. But this is more than a polish – we aim to make your experience a better one and we’ve made several changes to do just that.

The biggest difference to you, the user, is one you’ve been asking for. You can now comment directly on our articles rather than logging in to the forum. So if you’ve got something to add to a review or just something you think is funny that relates to the article you’re reading, scroll to the bottom and let everybody hear about it. You can easily share your thoughts and opinions (and point out the occasional mistake) on anything and everything we publish from here on out. Just keep it clean.

With this redesign, we are trying to make it easier for you to find anything and everything you’re looking for. That means the latest news is featured up front on the home page, along with all of our latest articles. It’s also easier than ever to find our Product reviews and How To articles, as well as search for new and used bikes in our classifieds.

Visually, new articles will feature larger images and videos so you can see the latest bikes down to the smallest detail.

We hope you enjoy the new and improved Motorcycle.com. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    Looks great!

    This site definetly looks more slick… the old one looked a bit 2005. Congrats on the upgrade, and look forward to seeing a review of the new Grom and FZ-09 :)

    Looking good. It definitely looks more clean. Great job, Motorcycle.com!

    Can we still have flame wars?

    Clean, flat/google-like design. I like it.

    Only suggestion: the “Find Your Motorcycle” widget is front and center, and I would guess that most people may think the “Latest Articles” section is a higher priority item, and should have top, front-page real estate.

    Is there a mobile device version? I visit the website on my phone.

    Lipstick on a pig. It’s like one of those creepy skins on an Android phone.

    Excellent use of fake posts from friends though!

    Good design.

    But you shall not use automatically starting videos on pages seen previously in news and reviews.

    And disqus comment system is problematic.

    Previous one was better.

    Hi, I am designer and rider from Brazil.

    I hope my english allow me to explain and help a little with some feedbacks about your new design. I’m a big fan of motorcycle.com and I like a lot your work.

    I like the flat design but still is a lot confuse! Yet it lacks organization.

    Why there is some articles on the top of the pages? It looks like Ads.

    Speaking of Ads, there are to many. Lots of diferent sizes and places.
    Ok, you have to earn money to keep the page rolling but, lacks organization, and would be nicer if you had some kind of special ad. Those that merge with the page design, much more interesting and efective.

    And I suggest to assume the blog format. Minimal design, clean, organized, use tags to categorize, a better search engine, just one column or two max, less information everywhere.

    And the Motorcycle.com logo its to shy! I’m not telling to enlarge the logo, but highlight it. there are too many information arround it!

    A good looking, pratical and minimal design is far more efective.

    I hope it helps somehow.

    I think it sucks, but it’s not like that’s going to matter to anyone who could change things. I’m sure I’ll get used to it soon enough.

    Site looks great! It loads so much faster and the new search tool is a huge improvement. Much easier for me to research specific models that I am considering for my next purchase. Keep up the good work!

    New design looks great. New menu system also much better. And glad you’re using Disqus :)

    Would like to see latest articles listed in right hand column, though, so that it would not be necessary to continually return to the main page.
