In this week’s issue of MCN, on sale September 14, we have world exclusive spy shots of the new Triumph Street Triple 675 caught carrying out high-speed tests in the UK.

Plus, we speak exclusively to James Toseland after injury forced the two-time WSB champion to retire. We also get reaction from old team-mates and managers on Toseland’s early retirement.

Also in this week’s issue, we test second-hand exotica that can now be had for the price of a new budget bike.
