Visordown achieved record growth figures last month to buck the current motorcycle industry slump.

Amid regular reports the motorcycle industry is in the doldrums we wanted to share some good news.

Our latest reports show more bikers visited Visordown.com last month, than in any previous February.

Visordown is growing at a phenomenal rate and has seen extraordinary growth of its online motorcycle community in the last couple of years, topped by some unprecedented numbers last month.

More than 825,000 unique users visited Visordown’s website for the latest bike news, reviews, features and videos, which is a 33% increase compared with the same month last year.

The total number of pages viewed shot up to 2.4M, a 26% uplift. Visitors are also looking at more pages than ever, bucking another recent trend.

The increased use of mobile phones to view content online has led to a rapid decline in the number of pages viewed per session across the vast majority of publisher websites, Visordown, however, has actually seen a small increase of 2%, with every user looking at an average of at least two pages.

Another significant growth area for Visordown has been on social media. Its social following has grown considerably, and surpassed 290,000 followers in February across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, an increase of 36% compared with last year.

With the recent additions of former RiDE and SuperBike magazine staffer Alan Dowds as editor and David Miller as publisher as Bikesportnews.com became part of the CMG portfolio – plus a host of exciting content campaigns, partnerships, and a site re-design in the pipeline – Visordown is expecting further significant growth in 2018.

From everyone at Visordown we want to say a massive thank you to all our readers, obviously the site wouldn’t be what it is without you.

Cheers all!
