Updated: 20 November 2014

In this week's MCN, out September 12, we put the all-new Triumph Trophy 1200 through its paces, riding it from Sctoland to the Triumph factory in Hickley, Leicester.

The original Trophy 1200 was the first bike out of the Hinckley factory in 1991, can the new Trophy 1200 live up to its name?

We also ride the new Kawasaki Ninja 300 in Germany.

Also in this week's issue we ride the advanced BMW S1000RR HP4 at Jerez.

Also this week; Ben Spies takes a satellite Ducati ride in MotoGP, why you should go on an adventure and  why Easy Rider is still the daddy.

384 miles, eight hours, one bike... The question is: is Triumph's new 1200 Trophy the bike you'd choose?

Kawasaki Ninja 300 ridden
An all-new longer-stroke engine and beefed-up styling takes Kawasaki's baby Ninja to new levels of desirability. But is it as good as it looks?


First ride: BMW S1000RR HP4
The lightest S1000R yet boasts semi-active suspension which adjusts automatically and saves hours of fiddling and twiddling. MCN put the bike through its paces at Jerez.
