In this week’s MCN: It’s MCN as you’ve never seen it before!

Your new-look MCN newspaper is packed to bursting with more routes, more places to go and more ways to have fun on your bike. In the first of our brand new-look issues this week you can expect:
  • First ride: Britain’s first home-grown superbike for a generation, the Norton V4 RR, deserves your attention. We ride it on the Isle of Man.
  • One-gallon challenge: each week a reader shares their Sunday stress-busting one hour rides. In this issue Chris Lowe reveals his favourite route in the Brecon Beacons.
  • New columnist TT legend John McGuinness gives his verdict on Miller, Marquez and Crutchlow after the chaos of the Argentine MotoGP.
  • MCN250: our new in-depth road test covers all types of road so you can be sure the bikes have been thoroughly tested on Britain’s brilliant but bumpy roads. This week it’s a group test of big adventure bikes featuring the Honda Africa Twin, KTM 1090 Adventure and Triumph Tiger 800 XCA. 
  • First test: Yamaha’s new Tracer 900GT brings more long-distance ability to this bargain sports-tourer.
  • One year on: reader Andy Thompson tells us what his first year on his KTM 1290 Superduke GT has been like.
  • The Big Read: the undisputed king of World Superbikes (and the jungle…) Carl Fogarty reflects on an incredible 18 years since he stopped racing and in a new book reveals major life changes.  
  • The Bucket list: most of us have a plan to ride the ultimate ride of a lifetime from Chicago to Los Angeles on the best-known road on earth. Here we find out how it certainly lives up to the dream.
  • Riding clinic: reader Ian Ransom needs our help. He loves right-handers, but struggles going left.
  • Dr Know: our resident technical expert answers your questions. This week our mechanical medic assists one reader with questions about his Suzuki Hayabusa’s suspension.
