In this week's MCN, we test the Aprilia RSV4, Yamaha R1, KTM RC8R and Triumph Daytona 675 around the Isle of Man TT course to find out which is the best sports bike of 2009.

Over 2000 miles were covered in three days, including four laps of the 37.73 mile TT course. Can the new-comer from Aprilia knock the R1 off the top spot? Or will the R1 conquer all? To find out, get your copy of this week's MCN.

This week, MCN has teamed up with Hein Gericke to give you 20% off all Hein Gericke boots and gloves
