New MCN April 14: World exclusive Norton Commando v Triumph Bonneville test

Published: 13 April 2010

In this week's issue of MCN, on sale April 14, we have a world exclusive first Norton Commando v Triumph Bonneville test on UK roads.

Exclusive spy shots prove MV Agusta's new middleweight is a triple and we have 4 pages of info including a tech analysis from Kevin Ash. 

Plus we know the new Suzuki GSX1250F is cheap at £6999, but is it as good as the pricier competition? We pit it against the Yamaha FZ1 Fazer, Honda VFR1200F and Honda CBF1000GT to find out.   

What you'll find in the April 14 issue of Motorcycle News:

New MV confirmed as a triple

Is Suzuki's GSX1250F the bargain it seems?
After MCN's first ride of the cut-price GSX1250F in Spain last month, we established that it's a great bike which doesn't cost silly money. But if you pitch it against other all-rounders, does it still feel like a bargain?
