New MCN July 25: Super twins tested

1 of 8

In this week's MCN, out July 25, we test middleweight super twins. Are bikes like the Kawasaki ER-6f the best bikes in the tough new world of the £6 gallon and £9000 sports bikes?

Included in this week's issue is a free adventure supplement. There's 24-pages detailing some of the greatest trails on earth, as well as some amazing stories and advice from the experts.

Also this week we have all-new spy shots of the new Ducati Hypermotard and Hypermotard Touring during testing.

We test the TT Legends ABS Fireblade, ride China's first big bike and discover why 400cc sports bikes are still the bike of choice for new riders and connoisseurs.
