Haynes Manuals Online set to double

01 August 2012

Following the successful launch of Haynes’ top 50 car manuals online, the world renowned publisher is now making its most popular motorbike manuals available electronically.

The first titles are now available online including popular models such as the Honda Gold Wing 1200 and classics such as the Triumph Bonneville. The 50 bestselling motorbike manuals will be online by the autumn, doubling the number of digital Haynes manuals.

The much-loved Haynes manuals, which offer step-by-step guides to car and motorbike care, can now be accessed on any computer or mobile device and include all the content from the printed books with the additional benefits of:

  • All-colour photographs and diagrams which can be enlarged to view key details
  • A quick and easy to use search tool
  • Quick links to the most popular DIY tasks
  • A fault finding section to help quickly ascertain the cause of a particular problem
  • Links to additional related information in other chapters
  • Dictionary of technical terms
  • Conversion calculator for imperial and metric units

Jeremy Yates-Round, Managing Director at Haynes said: "In a world where our natural instinct is to google how to fix something, we wanted to create digital guides which motorcyclists know they can trust because the advice comes from Haynes specialists with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Haynes Manuals Online will put the answer at your fingertips, making expert motorcycle maintenance advice more accessible than ever before."

Haynes has sold more than 150 million printed manuals worldwide. The top 50 car manuals were published in June in the UK and are already selling well. The publisher has sold twice as many lifetime subscriptions as annual subscriptions.

Jeremy Yates-Round added: "What we are seeing so far is that many people are buying the digital version in addition to the printed book. Sales are strong and we’ve seen a particular interest in our lifetime subscriptions."

A lifetime subscription to an online motorbike manual costs £33 or car £30. Or a one year subscription to an online motorcycle digital manual can be purchased for £28, car manuals £25 from Haynes Manuals Online
