"Suzuki RG has a glorious history, perhaps even a soul. And it is nice to retrace its footsteps on the pages of this book, from the beginning until 1980, the last year before the arrival of the Gamma version that in 1981 led Marco Lucchinelli to the world title and Franco Uncini in 1982.
RG's history is also seductive and Massimo Cuffiani was quite enchanted by it. Because his job is not that of writing books, but rather that of developing the styling of motorcycles that will go into production later. But the RG is a very strong part of his years as a boy and this book is a declaration of love for that bike and the entire world it represents, he worked with such a commitment and passion that a craftsman could never find, as well as he could never find such meticulousness in the technicalities, in the history, in the details. Cuffiani has put the soul in it, or maybe the RG has stolen his."
