In this week's MCN, out June 27, we have all the information and official pics on the all-new Triumph Trophy 1200.

The Trophy 1200 is the most advanced Triumph ever, with electronically adjustable suspension and a 132 bhp three-cylinder engine, but can it beat the BMW R1200RT?

We recreate the Great Escape on the new Triumph Bonneville Steve McQueen edition and ride the UK's fastest road legal bike.

Also this week we have insider information on a new water-cooled Ducati and we ride Tom Sykes' Kawasaki WSB bike.
