Also in this week's MCN, top tips for getting a cheap Ducati, the new KTM SMT with ABS tested, and all the news from the WSB test at Portimao.  

What you'll find in the February 2 issue of Motorcycle News:


Kawasaki ZX-10R versus rivals 
We test the new Kawasaki ZX-10R - which impressed at its launch in Qatar - against the rest of the 1000cc inline four superbikes.



Save £4000+ on last year's superbikes
Can't stretch to £13,000+ for one of this year's superbikes? MCN shows how you can get litre-bike thrills for much less money.


KTM's new SMT has bucked the trend for ever-increasing bike prices - it undercuts the outgoing model by £350 and has ABS as standard!
MCN's Fantasy Road Race starts next week! Time to start thinking about your team.




£60,000 Ducati to spawn road bikes
This stunning one-off Ducati built around a 125bhp air-cooled V-twin could spawn a stream of cheaper, road-going versions.



Dream Ducatis for £4000
Think a Ducati is out of reach? Think again. Hypermotards, 999/749s and even the homologation special 748SPS are down to as little as £4300




Britain's only MotoGP manufacturer
British chassis builder FTR has gone from being relatively unknown to providing almost a quarter of the bikes on the Moto2 grid.



On-fire Rea passes crucial WSB test
Jonathan Rea's impressive opening day blitz with the Castrol Honda against the stopwatch at Portimao was more than just impressive.
