Meanings

  • name: Include both the make and model of the motorcycle.
  • image: A representative image of the motorcycle taken against a background containing no other vehicles, with uniform lighting. Preferably, it should be a 'three quarter' (front and side view), or a side view of the motorcycle. (E.g.: Image:2006HondaCBR600RR-001.jpg).
  • alt: Text alternative for those who cannot see the image
  • caption: Caption for image
  • aka: Any other names the motorcycles is known by (e.g.: the Honda CB600F is also known as the Hornet and 599).
  • manufacturer: The brand name, marque, division or automaker
  • parent company: Industrial group or holding company which owns the marque/brand/division at the time the motorcycle was produced (if any)
  • production: Production dates of when the motorcycle was produced and sold. Must be listed down to the month and year.
  • assembly: cities and countries where the model is built
  • predecessor: Previous models from the manufacturer in the segment or similar
  • successor: Following models in the segment or similar
  • class: Use article types of motorcycle to see different classes and descriptions.
  • engine: Use article motorcycle engine to see different types.
  • bore_stroke: Use the {{convert}} template to convert both parameters e.g. {{convert|80.5|x|49.5|mm|abbr=on}}
  • compression: The cylinders' compression ratio, e.g. 12.5:1
  • top_speed: Maximum achievable speed. Can be in either mph or km/h. Use {{convert}} for proper conversions. (Note: This parameter must be supported by a reliable reference)
  • power: The maximum achieved power, preferably indicating the RPM in which it is achieved. (Note: This parameter must be supported by a reliable reference)
  • torque: The maximum achieved torque, preferably indicating the RPM in which it is achieved. (Note: This parameter must be supported by a reliable reference)
  • ignition: Type of ignition mechanism. e.g.: CDI, kick start, etc.
  • transmission: Number of forward gear ratios, and the type of transmission (e.g. "6-speed manual, 5-speed automatic")
  • frame: See Motorcycle frame for frame types.
  • suspension:
  • brakes:
  • tires:
  • rake_trail: Usually expressed in degrees (°) and mm
  • wheelbase:
  • length:
  • width:
  • height:
  • seat_height:
  • dry weight: (Note: This parameter must be supported by a reliable reference)
  • wet weight: (Note: This parameter must be supported by a reliable reference)
  • fuel capacity: Nominal capacity of the fuel tank
  • oil_capacity: Only applies to 2-stroke bikes with a separate oil tank.
  • fuel_consumption: (Note: This parameter must be supported by a reliable reference)
  • turning_radius: Rarely relevant except to small city bikes like mopeds. "Turning radius" is identical to "turning circle".
  • related: Bikes from the same manufacturer sharing a purpose but with different displacements, or sharing engines but with different purposes. Not competitors' models.
  • sp: Use "uk" to display "Tyres" instead of "Tires"
  • footnotes : Use to list citations that validate the data in the infobox or to note information about the terms, names and figures used. Generally it is not necessary to footnote uncontroversial stats, but performance claims, i.e. power, torque, weight and fuel economy, must be cited.

Notes

All fields must be verifiable with a fully cited secondary, third-party source. Manufacturer performance claims are often exaggerated and should be used only when they are credible and when independent sources do not exist. This particularly applies to:

  • Top speed
  • Power
  • Torque
  • Dry weight
  • Wet weight
  • Fuel consumption

When in doubt, leave performance statistics blank rather than include a dubious or uncited value. In most cases, uncontroversial statistics, such as wheelbase, fork rake, or tire dimensions, can be accepted from the manufacturer's claims unless another source raises an objection. Well-sourced controversies, confusion, or contradictions over these statistics should be described in the body text of the article.

Optional parameters

|bodystyle=
|titlestyle=
|labelstyle=
|datastyle=

The optional CSS parameters listed above can be used to define style for the body, title, label, or data areas.

Microformat

The HTML mark-up produced by this template includes an hProduct microformat that makes a product's details readily parsable by computer programs. This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.

If the product has a URL, use {{URL}} to include it.

Classes used

The HTML classes this microformat uses include:

  • brand
  • category
  • description
  • fn
  • hproduct
  • identifier
  • listing
  • photo
  • price
  • review
  • type
  • url
  • value
Please do not rename or remove these classes
nor collapse nested elements which use them.
