Motorbikes are at the pinnacle of two-wheeled engineering. Designed for adrenalin-inducing speed, breathtaking handling and head-turning looks, these superb machines are the most glamorous and desirable bikes on the road. Superbikes: Street Racers – Design and Technology is a beautifully packaged celebration of these superlative machines, chronicling 75 of the world’s greatest bikes, from the earliest Superbikes such as Honda’s CB750 and Kawasaki’s Z1, to the latest Yamaha YZF R-1 and Ducati 998R. Each bike is dissected over two spreads. The first features a close-up studio photograph of the bike complete with detailed annotations; the second explores the history of the bike, aspects of its design and revolutionary features. For the enthusiast there is a comprehensive specification box containing every fact and figure imaginable, from engine size and tyre measurements to top speed, weight, power output and gearbox.
