Easy Tiger...
With it's engine, chassis and styling tweaks, extra comfort and an attractive £9599 price tag, the new Tiger Sport is the model's first big update since 2007. But is it any good and where does it fit in? Is it an adventure bike, a sports tourer, or something in between? We take the mountain roads near Barcelona at the bike's world launch to find out.



The Swindler
Flat track specialist Steve Hillary's first 'Norton' was a hybrid scrambler with a Dominator engine squeezed into a Gilera twin-shock chassis. Twenty years later he's completed the circle by building a street scrambler from a new Norton Commando 961SE. MCN gets to ride it first.

More than just a restyle
Triumph's Daytona still ranks as one of the best superspot bikes on the market - on both road and track. For 2013 Triumph has significantly updated the Daytona, with a new engine and completely revised chassis. But are the changes really that noticible - have they done enough or have they ruined a proven winner? We pit the old and new models head-to-head to find out.


Sport for all
More people own a Honda CBR600 than any other model of motorcycle in the UK - and with good reason. The main one is that the bike was the consummerate middleweight all-rounder - a bike you could commute on all week and do a trackday at the weekend. Here's how to buy the right version of this easy-to-own bike!




Sykes fractures wrist in Phillip Island carnage
A week away from WSB's curtain raiser at Phillip Island and testing Down Under turned into two days of carnage... with injuries, wrecked bikes, and spare parts now in short supply; not the start the teams were looking for. So what went wrong at the fast flowing track?


Tech Secrets of Sepang
It's a year of change on the rider front, with Rossi moving back to Yamaha, Marc Marquez slipping smoothly into the Repsol Honda seat vacated by Casey Stoner, and Ducati licking their wounds after being kicked by the GOAT. The hardware changes look more subtle - but there were fascinating insights into the endless war of refinement at the Sepang test.
