This new, special version of the Norton Commando Café Racer is set to be one of the stars of next year’s Thundersprint.

The special edition, features black engine cases and exhausts and BST carbon fibre wheels, is being priced at £13,995 and will be ridden by Walker at the popular Northwich two centre classic event on May 7/8 next year. Entry is free.

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, there is the first part of the MCN Christmas Quiz and a customised, naked BMW S1000RR is ridden.
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.
