What you'll find in the November 17 issue of Motorcycle News:


Rossi's first Ducati test
Three-time 500cc World champion Wayne Rainey has explained why Valentino Rossi's historic debut on a Ducati MotoGP bike was such a damp squib.




New Triumph Trophy on test
These are the first ever pictures of Triumph's new Trophy 1200 - the most significant new Triumph since the launch of the Daytona 675 in 2006. 


Triumph Tiger 800XC first ride
We test the off-road Triumph Tiger 800XC and road biased Tiger 800 in Barcelona to see if they are a match for the BMW F800GS.




How VAT rise will affect bikes
MCN looks into the effect the New Year increase in VAT from 17.5% to 20% will have on the motorcycle market.



Crutchlow tops Rossi in first test
Cal Crutchlow is keeping his feet planted frimly on the ground after an eye-opening MotoGP debut in Valencia saw him beat Valentino Rossi and Loris Capirossi.




Why it would be foolish to write off Rossi
He may have only been 15th fastest on his Ducati debut, but don't forget his first Yamaha test - and the changes he and his crew made to make it a rae and title winner.
