Product description

Tracing the history of two-wheeled grit and glory, from the first prototypes to the superbikes of today, "Motorcycle: The Definitive Visual History" covers more than 1,000 of the world's greatest machines, from the earliest prototypes from the mid-nineteenth century, to the dynamic speedsters of today. Comprehensive catalogs highlight the most important motorcycles of each period, along with their specifications and distinctive features. Histories of the men and machines like Honda and Harley-Davidson reveal the origins of these now-household names. Iconic motorcycles of each era, such as the 1970s Kawasaki KZ1000, are showcased with specially commissioned photography, and include "virtual tours" that reveal the anatomy of these legendary motorcycles in mesmerizing close-up. Whether an object of curiosity, affordable means of transport, symbol of rebellion, or first choice for full-throttle thrills on road or race track, "Motorcycle: The Definitive Visual History" chronicles each decade of motorcycle history in stunning visual detail.
