Superbikes are at the pinnacle of two-wheeled production engineering. Designed for adrenalin-inducing speed, breath-taking handling and head-turning good looks, these superb machines are the most glamorous and desirable bikes on the road.

Superbikes represents a fresh and informative approach to the subject. In handy pocket-sized form it chronicles 75 of the world’s greatest machines, from the earliest superbikes such as the Honda CBX 1000 and Suzuki RG500, to the latest Yamaha YZF R-1 and Ducati 996 SPS.

Each of the 75 bikes in the book is examined in great detail over four pages. Stunning cut-out photography from a variety of angles and detailed annotations describe the motorcycle’s special features, while lively text explores the history of the bike and aspects of its design. For the real enthusiast there is a comprehensive specification box containing fact and figures, from engine size and tyre measurements to top speed, weight, power output and gearbox.
