In this week's MCN, out July 4, we have all the information on the new BMW F700GS and F800GS.

With the Triumph Tiger 800 eating into BMW's market share, the German manufacturer has revamped its middleweight adventure bikes, but will it be enough?

We ride the relaunched MV Agusta F3 to find out if MV really have fixed the fuelling problems.

Also this week we ride Leon Haslam's WSB bike, the wooly jumpers that changed motorcycling and Cal Crutchlow is close to signing with Ducati in MotoGP
