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 and the 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.
Also look for our usual mix of editorial columns, news from the sportbike world, in-depth product tests and riding skills series.
