The Seventies were years of great change. Motorcycles went from being a utilitarian transport for a few enthusiasts to objects of tremendous fascination, which were even able to win over people who were not really motorcyclists. During those years, motorbikes, especially those of substantial cubic capacity, were so mesmerising as to even become a phenomenon of fashion. The Japanese were the first to open up this new market followed by the glorious British manufacturers; Italy responded with new, fascinating models, which were able to leave their mark on the international scene. The author examines the historical and cultural context in which these bikes first appeared focusing on the most significant Italian marques of the Seventies such as Moto Guzzi, Benelli, MV Agusta, Ducati and many others.

IL GRANDE LIBRO DELLE MOTO ITALIANE ANNI 50 E 60

The 50s and 60s comprised an extremely significant epoch in the history of the motorcycle in which the foundations of what became known as the “economic miracle” were laid. When the car was still inaccessibly expensive and out of reach of most Italians, it was these two-wheeled machines that were the individual means of transport par excellence. But the scenario that evolved in subsequent decades was a different one, starting with the debut of the first small, much less expensive “utility” cars. It was then that the motorcycle began to lose popularity and remained the dream of just a few enthusiasts. The book returns to those two fascinating decades and brings them alive once more with its thousands of pictures, blended with a text brimming with interest.

IL GRANDE LIBRO DELLE MOTO ITALIANE ANNI 80

After “The Great Book of Italian Motorbikes of the 70s”, Giorgio Sarti takes on the fascinating subject of the Italian motorcycles of the 80s, maybe a less extraordinary period than the preceding decade, but no less captivating. The names are those of always, from Moto Guzzi to MV Agusta and Ducati. Constructors recounted through a text which does not just speak of history and technical matters but also of trends, culture, men, providing the reader with an exhaustive picture of those years. The book comprises three parts. The first examines the historical and cultural context in which these machines appeared. The second is devoted to a panorama of the biggest selling models and the history of the relative marques. The third shows the 10 most significant Italian bikes of the 80s, minutely analysing all to provide enthusiasts with many essential and useful elements for the recognition of the various series. For each model there is a gamut of detail ranging from technical history to technique, from maintenance, riding the motorcycles, including production numbers and collecting. The wealth of illustrations is especially varied, comprising an ample collection of images and documents of the period.

IL GRANDE LIBRO DELLE MOTO GIAPPONESI ANNI 80

In the history of motorcycles, the Eighties are characterised by the unquestioned domination of Japanese machines. The progress of the Land of the Rising Sun is impressive: until the end of the Sixties, production only concerned utility models. The revolution came in the Seventies with the fascinating maxi-bikes, powered by exceptional engines but sometimes combined with inadequate chassis. Success was total in the Eighties: engines and chassis became the world’s best, their performance unapproachable. The Japanese motorcycles of those years imposed themselves on the market, became the new point of reference and sent all the other manufacturers into crisis. The technical layouts saw the spread of single rear dampers and complete fairing, the bikes ever more resembling racing machines with number plates and lights. The new motorcycles on display at the motorcycle shows each year embody a wealth of technological innovations: some are of great interest others, like the turbo, quickly go out of fashion. And the interest of the enthusiast is always at a maximum level.

    THE 10 JAPANESE BIKES THAT MADE THE 80S:

  • Honda VFR 750 F
  • Honda VFR 750 R (RC 30)
  • Kawasaki GPz 900 R
  • Suzuki GSX 750 R
