BMW has already officially dismissed rumours of a naked version of the class-leading S1000RR superbike, but that wasn't what top US tuner Ken Zeller wanted to hear. 

Zeller is the boss of tuning house Evoluzione Cyclesports based in California. He sells tuning parts for European firms like BMW, Ducati, KTM, Benelli, Bimota and Aprilia but while he loved the performance of the BMW S1000RR, he didn’t love the comfort levels for his 6ft 3in frame. 

This is just one story you can read in full in the December 22 issue of MCN on sale on Wednesday. You can also check out Britain’s Got Biking Talent winners in full detail, we pit the new Triumph Speed Triple 1050 against the replaced model to see exactly where the improvements are and there is the first part of the MCN Christmas Quiz.
MCN has also asked a celebrity panel of racers including Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Gardner, Ben Spies and Colin Edwards to rate the greatest MotoGP scrap of the year which saw Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo battling on track at Motegi.
