In this week's MCN, out August 8, we celebrate the rise, fall and rise of Britain's best-loved bikes - the supersport 600s.

We celebrate 100 years of the middleweight supersport class, size up the alternatives and line up the best second hand 600s on the market.

Also in this week's issue British Moto2 rider Scott Redding tests a factory Ducati GP12 at Mugello.

Plus we have all-new spy shots of the new Kawasaki ZX-6R.
