MotoOnline.com.au has a fresh new look for the 2012 season.

MotoOnline.com.au is proud to today unveil a brand new version of what is widely recognised as Australia’s leading online motocross, supercross and off-road publication.

Featuring a striking new design that is an evolution of our previous site, MotoOnline Version 2.0 has been pieced together in a strategic manner to enhance the experiences of our 30 thousand-plus visitors each and every month.

But the upgrades haven’t stopped at the design, with the structure of the website sections now broken up into multiple areas so visitors can gain quicker and easier access to their favourite content from day to day.

For example, if you want to check out our Product Centre, but only want to look at the new bike releases, simply click on the ‘Bikes’ sub-tab and you’ll be directed to every new bike model release that we’ve uploaded. Looking to see some tyres, chains, air-filters, etc? Click Hard Parts!

That same concept has been carried out throughout the site, including the merging of both the films and images into a new-look Multimedia section that we’ll continue to evolve over the next few months. With resources like Simon Cudby and Australia’s own Guy Streeter, we set the benchmark in genuine Multimedia content in Australia.

A major focus during the re-structure and re-launch is the addition of even more Features, all separated into their own tabs so you can browse through all your favourite features (and selected new ones) one area at a time.

Have a look through the navigation bar at the top of the page and see all the new sections for yourself, with even further plans for expansion on track for when the MX Nationals commence.

As of next week, we’ll have no less than three features uploaded on the site per day, plus the most groundbreaking news section in the sport on a daily basis. With an expanding list of world class contributors including Steve Matthes, Adam Riemann and Simon Makker, you’ll be able to enjoy multiple views and opinions on a consistent basis for the first time ever on an Aussie site.

Following a strong finish to last year, we’ve also decided to upgrade the Moto Poll to a new efficient and precise system, which enables users to have their say on various topics in the sport. First up, tell us what you’d like to see more of on MotoOnline (poll is on the right-hand side of the site).

Also new in MO2.0 is the addition of specific section sponsorships, with Fox already coming onboard as title sponsor of The Matthes Report. Check out the latest one and take a look at Fox’s presence, complete with links to their website and social networking sites. We have a couple more section sponsors locked in to commence next week, too…

Needless to say, none of these changes (or the regular content for that matter) could be produced and paid for without the highly appreciated support of our sponsors, supporters and fans. Be sure to support those who support your sport, every time you buy for your bike riding experiences.

Coming next week is a renovation of the way our iMoto Community Forum works, including the addition of capabilities for members to upload their own images and signatures, plus a revised method of commenting on stories in the main content areas of the site (free for all, anyone?).

Stay tuned for the story from behind the upgrades next week in the latest version of The Go, but for now, take a look around and enjoy the changes – we know that we will be!
