In this week's issue of MCN, on sale June 30, we have spy shots of an all new model - the next Triumph Tiger. 

We also reveal more details on the new Ducati Mega Monster, bring you the class-leading tech behind the BMW K1600S and investigate whether traction control really makes the average rider faster. 

Plus we pit the standard Ducati Multistrada against the £3,300 more expensive S version to see if it's really worth the extra.
