This thing is like the new Motorcyclist revamp on STEROIDS.
It's at least twice the size and heft of Motorcyclist and the paper stock is even thicker.
I've only skimmed through it, but t's hard to argue with the really nice full-page photos printed in matte format. If anything they remind me of Sport Rider's large photos. There's nothing "shiny" about the magazine at all and it's quite a departure from the old CW.
I may well be just style over substance, but compared to this new format that resembles some kind of museum catalog, the last issue of the old CW seems like nothing but a cheap pamphlet.

I've yet to receive my new "improved" Cycle World magazine - but I'm not holding my breath...

Decided to subscribe to Roadracing World (RoadracingWorld.com // Roadracing World Magazine // Motorcycle Roadracing Daily News) to get my sport bike fix.

I've been a subscriber to Sport Rider, Cycle World, and Motorcyclist for about 15 years, but I'm done with Bonnier Corporation and their artsy redesign of their motorcycle magazines.

Plus I'm still pissed about Sport Rider...

I'm starting to think these massive redesigns are just a "last gasp" of the motorcycle magazine industry. There's just too much targeted content on the web these days. I have no interest in ADV or flat track bikes, but if you subscribe at least one or two issues per year are focused on segments of the sport you have little interest in. That's not a problem if you get your content on the web where you can view tons on videos and articles tailored to your interests.
In a lot of cases the videos that Bonnier puts out are more interesting and informative than anything that appears in their magazines and it's free. They're only lessening demand for the magazines they have left by putting out all this web content.
