In this week's issue of MCN, on sale April 13, we have all the news from Ducati's test of their 2012 MotoGP bike, as well as why Rossi's struggles could spark disaster for Ducati's new superbike.

We test the new Honda CBR600F against the CBR600RR and CBF600S. We also ride the new Ducati Monster 1100 Evo.

Also in this week's MCN, 466 speed cameras switched off.

What you'll find in the April 13 issue of Motorcycle News:


Rossi on 2012 Ducati
Ducati's bid to keep Valentino Rossi started in earnest last weekend when they wheeled out their 2012 1000cc Desmosedici for him to test.



Ducati Monster 1100 Evo first ride
With the new 1100 Evo, Ducati is taking a significantly new approach to its long-loved Monster - prioritising high-tech rider aids and safety along with user-friendliness.


CBR600F vs CBR600RR vs CBF600S
To fulfil its brief, the CBR600F should be comfortable, inspire confidence and be sporty. We test it against the CBR600RR and CBF600S to see how it copes.
