Published: 18 June 2013

In this week's MCN, out June 19, we have a world-exclusive first test of MV Agusta's new F3 800.

We have spy shots of Triumph's new Harley-beater cruiser bikes.

Also this week: MCN vs TT winner, at home with Kevin Schwantz, and Hyperstrada vs KTM SMT or used Multistrada?.

In sport: Cal's importance to MotoGP, Shakey back in charge at BSB, and Redding for MotoGP Honda?

 

Spied: New Triumph in Harley clothing
Triumph has been working on new versions of its Thunderbird cruiser for two years, and our latest spy shots show the firm is months away from launching a Road King rival, as well as a work-in-progress Electra Glide rival.
