BikeAdvice Ownership Review Contest 12 Update: Top 10 Reviews Shortlisted!

by Saad on May 26, 2013

BikeAdvice announced Ownership Review Contest 12 a few months back. And let me tell you that this has been the grandest and the most exhaustive contest we have ever had. We received more than a whooping 50 reviews of bikes as varied as a CD100 and Shaolin along with the latest tech-rich R15s and CBRs and the regular Pulsar 150/180s and Unicorns.


*Here are the prizes

Each and every biker is a winner in himself and each review we have received reflects the motoring passion and the upcoming positive times for our and next gens. We are sure these reviews would have helped many thousand readers to get a good glimpse of all the bikes from the actual owners. But, since this is a contest, we need to declare the top reviews for awards sake!

With this, we come to the final and the most awaited phase of this contest. After exhaustively going through all the reviews, we have come up with a list of top 10 reviews. Now the final judgement will be based on the following three factors:

  1. Poll Results
  2. Facebook Likes
  3. Our Judgement on Overall Article Quality

Poll Results: Just after this update, we will publish a new article seeking votes from all our readers for the top reviews (which will be linked to the original article). This Poll will be open till Saturday 01st June 11:59 pm. We expect complete fairplay from all the participants.

Facebook Likes: If you see we have placed a widget at every article (specimen pic below) which a reader can click if he ‘Likes’ an article. We will consider the total likes each of these review articles have garnered till the end of Saturday 01st June.


Remember, these two parameters will definitely be a consideration in the final choice however, these are not the sole deciding factors. We will sit back, analyze each and every article and declare the top 3 winners on Sunday 02 June here at BikeAdvice!

So share these reviews around to ensure you get maximum chances of people liking your reviews.

Very shortly we will publish the selected Top 10 results in the form of a Poll. Keep tuned!

That is a nice way to judge the winner based on social proof. All the best guys, may the best man win this contest ;-)

This is not fair Bike advice… Poll results is atleast ok… likes on Facebook is bullshit…

The reviewer’s friends will definitely like and also people who love a specific bike will surely like it… and am sure… most love big bikes and the bikes they don’t have… none will care about commuters or proven bikes … the reviewers of those bikes like the cd-100 or unicorns u mentioned will face severe beat in winning the contest…

Please reconsider

Hi Martian,
Please read the article again…
We have clearly specified that FB likes and Poll Results will be two criterias that will help us in judging however they will NOT be the sole judging criteria!

As a one of the bike advice user, plz avoid using inappropriate words as a courtesy here in public blog. if you have anything to say, please be gentle.
Just a thought. no offense.
