The December 2013 issue of Sport Rider
is on sale now and features the Aprilia Tuono V4 R
on the cover. Inside is a full road test of the Aprilia, with the added twist that we take the naked bike to a trackday as well as put it through the usual on-road testing regimen.
Other features inside this issue include a naked-bike comparison test
of the Triumph Street Triple R
MV Agusta Brutale 675
; we also took a first-ride on the MV Agusta Brutale 800 while out testing these two middleweight triples. Look for a quick-shift road test of the Honda VFR1200F DCT model and the first installment of our AMA Daytona SportBike-spec Kawasaki ZX-6R project bike.
In racing action, the issue has a photo essay from the Red Bull Indianapolis GP
along with in-depth coverage of the Suzuki 8 Hours race
, where former 500cc World Champion Kevin Schwantz came out of retirement to finish on the podium.
