Things are about to change around here

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment - ANDY CALTON ED­I­TOR

We have been bom­barded with bril­liant new bikes over the last few weeks and, we reckon, the fi­nal count for 2017 mod­els is well over 100!

That’s an in­cred­i­ble amount of new metal. Some of th­ese new ar­rivals are re­vamps to get bikes Euro4 com­pli­ant but many are ground-up new ma­chines. None­the­less it makes for a mouth-wa­ter­ing Mo­tor­cy­cle Live at the NEC and the Ca­role Nash MCN Lon­don Mo­tor­cy­cle Show at EX­CEL in Fe­bru­ary.

And MCN has de­cided to get in on the act by of­fer­ing some­thing new too! From next week you will no­tice a whole host of changes to the pa­per as we try to of­fer even more of what you want.

There’s a new Rid­ing sec­tion with crack­ing routes to ex­plore and tips on how to im­prove your road and track craft and there’s a page ded­i­cated to the best bike meet­ing places.

There is also a new sec­tion ded­i­cated to buy­ing and sell­ing bikes. There’s great deals high­lighted and ad­vice on which bikes to buy right now.

We are also pack­ing more bikes into the pa­per as we at­tempt to cover as many ar­eas of the mo­tor­cy­cling world as pos­si­ble. So there should al­ways be some­thing in the is­sue to ap­peal to you.

We are also adding many new el­e­ments which em­brace bik­ing’s most mem­o­rable mo­ments, and we will be in­tro­duc­ing a reg­u­lar retro bikes fea­ture too.

We will be sug­gest­ing more great events to at­tend and there will even be a quiz for you to get your head around ev­ery week.

We’ve spent the last few months talk­ing to read­ers and cre­at­ing stacks of ma­te­rial to see what works best. The ul­ti­mate test will come next week (Novem­ber 23 is­sue) when you pick up the pa­per and de­cide whether it’s a win­ner or not. We look for­ward to hear­ing how you feel about the newlook MCN and we will be con­tin­u­ing to evolve and cre­ate more of the con­tent you want ev­ery week. And you can get in­volved by send­ing us pic­tures of your rides, ad­ven­tures and favourite meet­ing places. We want to see pic­tures of your first bike. Don’t miss next week’s is­sue.
