Product description

Review

The fact that the original publication has now been continually updated , (the last time in 2010) so that now we have the sixth edition says it all - there is plenty to tell for a company that continues to make history. The author and the publisher Veloce have done their usual excellent job of totally revamping the book so it looks and feels totally new and very different to the previous editions produced by a different publisher. As with previous updates all the solid information remains the same only be tweaked if something new has come to light, pictures changed for better versions where necessary and, all in all, improving things to make it well worth upgrading id you have an earlier version. What else can you say other than this book is authoritative, well-written, well-presented. If you have not got a book detailing the history and the bikes from 1946 - 2018 then this book has to be top of your list ... a wise investment. - Ian Kerr. The fascinating history and high technical content of these Italian motorcycles. The chapter on demodromic valve control alone steals our hearts! Recommended! - Oldtimer Magazine/Dreamcar Magazine. Prolific Melbourne author Ian Falloon has further updated his comprehensive history of Ducati that has become one of the most authoritative books on the subject. More than twenty years have passed between the original book and this sixth edition, and the company's fortunes have waxed and waned in the ensuing decades. Since 2012, Ducati has been under the control of Audi AG, part of the global giant Volkswagen Group, and this latest edition devotes a new 62-page chapter to the ongoing story. The book is a high quality item with excellent photographs, many of which are the work of Phil Aynsley. - Old Bike Australasia.
