Apart from the history of Morini, the 2-cylinder 3½ has become a real icon in motorcycling as a whole. One of the first advertisements for that model said, “It’s only got two cylinders, but it shows a lot more”. And never has a slogan lived up to its word so convincingly, given the performance of the 4-stroke engine, which was way better than that of the opposition. Reduced fuel consumption, excellent road handling and a range capable of satisfying all palates (with the GT series born of the Turismo to the lively Sport), they were the strong points of the 3½ which, for those reasons, enjoyed immediate success. The book covers the technical and industrial stories of all the models, having availed itself of a series of spectacular photographic sessions organised specifically for it, enabling all enthusiasts to rediscover a motorbike that really did make history.

MOTO MORINI: UNA STORIA ITALIANA

Until now a comprehensive history of Moto Morini, a racing and road-going motorcycle manufacturer founded in the second half of the ’30s, had yet to be written. Anyway, the activity of Alfonso Morini goes back to the ’20s when, together with Mario Mazzetti, a great fan of the two wheels and excellent technician, he gave birth to another famous marque, the MM, lately left by Morini (1937) to found a firm under his own family name.The celebrated Italian marque is now about to enjoy a second, or perhaps even a third youth, following its latest relaunch. This book tells the story of the company from its origins to the present day, tackling the industrial and sporting issues as well as engineering matters thanks to the technical expertise of the author Massimo Clarke. The text is supported by a vast archive of largely unpublished images made available by the company itself.

IL GRANDE LIBRO DELLE MOTO ITALIANE ANNI 70

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.
