The cover of our December 2015 issue (Vol. 18, Issue 08) is highlighted by the new and exciting 2016 Ducati Monster 1200 R. Does this first Monster with Ducati’s ‘R’ race designation stand up to the honour? Nothing like a track test to find out! Read our impressions of Ducati’s latest Monster in the December issue of Inside Motorcycles.
A sidebar on the Ducati Monster 821 accompanies our Monster 1200 R coverage, while western correspondent Patrick Lambie puts Kawasaki’s sport touring monster, the Concours 14 ABS, to a proper test. Lastly we stuff in a review of the fun and energetic Honda CBR650F, including two track-based sidebars on Honda’s budget-friendly sport bike. On the touring front, Editor Jones takes a trip to the 1000 Islands and Adirondack regions of upstate New York, a rider’s and outdoorsperson’s heaven full of lakes, rivers, forests, quaint towns, boat tours, fine dining and winding roads. Read about it in the latest issue and make your own plans to go!
We’ve also got a profile of a custom-built Honda 450 street tracker, a feature on the rise of youth flat track racing in Ontario, a recap of the Vintage Road Racing Association‘s 2015 campaign and a look back at the Vincent Grey Flash single-cylinder 500 cc racer from the mid-20th century.
It’s all in the December issue of Inside Motorcycles.
