Why Cycle World?

The most trusted source for motorcycle information available.

Joe Parkhurst started Cycle World in 1962. All he wanted was a magazine that offered good, intelligent information on all of motorcycling. Problem was that the magazines of the day often catered more to their advertisers than their readers. Faced with no other solution, Joe hocked all he owned and started his own magazine, Cycle World.

In the more than 45 years since Joe's first issue, we have ridden and reported on every single significant motorcycle manufactured, giving readers information they can trust and a perspective on what each machine does well...and not so well. Since the start, Cycle World has delivered straight, honest reporting. Cycle World is available online, through digital and traditional subscriptions, on newsstands and at the best motorcycle dealerships around.

The World is Changing

The New World arrives with the November issue.

Early this October, subscribers and newsstand buyers of Cycle World will be getting a much improved product!A thicker cover combined with perfect (glued) binding means the new Cycle World should be virtually U.S. Post Office proof! No more staples to go missing or covers that get trashed in transit.

Improved paper in the body of the magazine means dramatically improved graphic reproduction — great photos will look even greater!

Beyond the mechanical improvements to the magazine, we are re-arranging some of your favorite sections and restyling others for what we hope you'll find an even more enjoyable reading experience. In months to come you will find us toiling away on more projects bikes, evaluating more products from across the motorcycle aftermarket and printing How-To's that will help you get even more from motorcycling.

Take a look at our new World and tell us what you think!
