New MCN double issue December 19: Triumph Daytona 675R first ride

1 of 13

In this week’s five-in-one Christmas double issue of MCN, out December 19, we have the first test of the new Triumph Daytona 675R.

In 2006 the Daytona 675 really shook up the supersport class. Can it do the same again?

We also test the new ‘Skyhook’ Ducati Multistrada against the 2012 model, to see if semi-active suspension really does make a difference.

Also this week: MV Agusta reveal plans for an 800cc sport bike and Andy McNab on riding for the SAS.

In sport: Jon Kirkham returns to BMW, Norton announce two rider team for the 2013 TT and Cal Crutchlow reflects on his 2012 season.

Included in the two-week double issue; free glossy BSB calendar, 16-page Dakar companion, Colin Edwards’ Christmas lists 2012 and 12 eye-popping pull out posters. Click each image below to see more of each supplement.

Ducati Multistrada: old vs new
It’s hard to spot the difference between the old and new Ducati Multistrada, as the most significant improvement is the introduction of ‘Skyhook’ semi-active suspension. So does it work or is it just a gimmick?
