Discover the gripping, action-packed history of the motorcycle, from the earliest petrol-powered two-wheelers to the blistering superbikes of today.

Tracing the history and allure of the motorcycle, this book illustrates the diverse spectrum of bikes from the earliest prototypes to battery-powered machines of the modern age. It showcases motorcycles in all their forms, from humble scooters that offer mobility to the masses, the scrabblers and racers that delight enthusiasts, to the iconic choppers and cruisers that can cross continents.

The Motorbike Book tells the fascinating stories behind the world's leading manufacturers, the roles played by their influential designers and engineers, and their milestone models. It not only charts the technological developments of motorcycles, but also the cultural backdrop against which the various models arose and their impact on society - as objects of curiosity, affordable means of transport, symbols of rebellion, or the first choice for full-throttle action on the road, trail, or track.

Fully updated to include the latest models from around the world and cutting-edge innovations, this new edition features over 1,000 must-see machines, with models from ACE to Zundapp. It is the ideal read for motorcycle and motorsport enthusiasts, whether they're a biker themselves or an armchair devotee.
