The November issue of Inside Motorcycles features another jam-packed array of tests, adventure stories, touring tales and racing features to satisfy every motorcycle enthusiast's sweet tooth!
Our cover model is the brand-new BMW S1000RR HP4, which Senior Editor Colin Fraser got to test in Spain last month. He discovered that the German company has hardly been resting on its laurels... moving to more docile machinery, Fraser also provides his impressions on the Husqvarna TR650 Terra and Strada that are making their way to Canada for 2013. And Larry Tate provides a neat comparo between the 2012 Ducati Multistrada Touring and the Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 NTX, both of which he spent considerable time with on separate touring adventures. How do they stack up against each other? Find out in the November issue!

On the cover: the Triumph Tiger Explorer is certainly one of the buzz bikes of 2012 - Senior Editor Jason Thorpe puts it to the test, but will it live up to the hype? Andrew Nelson is also celebrated on the cover as a first-time MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship race winner after many, many years of trying!
In addition to the Explorer, we also test the MV Agusta Brutale RR 1090 and the Yamaha YZF-R1. Of the naked, 156 hp Brutale, Editor-At-Large Costa Mouzouris comments that "everything about it says supersport in disguise," while Tech Editor John Sharrard considers the traction control-enhanced R1 "a quantum leap ahead of the first crossplane-crankshaft R1 that turned the engineering wold on its end when it was debuted in 2009."
