New MCN June 2: Norton's model plan

Published: 01 June 2010

Updated: 19 November 2014

In this week's issue of MCN, on sale June 2, we bring you all the news and gossip from the bizarre start to the fastest-ever TT. Including Plater's broken neck and Guy Martin's work van/bedroom.

We put the new crop of 800cc middleweights head-to-head to see if they can topple the brilliant Triumph Street Triple.

A factory race prepared Ducati Multistrada could pave the way for an SP edition of the road bike.

Plus, we look into why Casey Stoner keeps crashing.
