The Ducati family, in 1946, had the bright idea that they should move into motorized motorcycles as they had been selling radio components in Bologna at the time.
70 years later, the Ducati name is synonymous with speed, style, and sofistication. Now owned by Lamborghini, Ducati is the producer of the fastest and hottest motorcycles in the world.
The Complete Book of Ducati Motorcycles, features all of the motorcycles from Ducati’s storied history, including the groundbreaking Desmodromic 750 Super Sport, the the Superbike-dominating 916, and the epic Panigale.
The first Ducatis were more practical machines but by 1965 they’d already earned their place in motorcycling history by producing the fastest 250 cc road bike then available, the famed Mach 1.
And since the beginning its “svelte, hyper-accelerating motorcycles are two-wheeled wonders that are fluent in the language of speed,” notes author Ian Falloon.
Whether you’re a Ducati owner or just a dreamer, you’re going to want a copy of this beauty.
But just beware that whatever you’re riding now might suddenly seem very tame….

The first of a major series of new bikes that will join the Ducati 2016 range has been presented at the Frankfurt-held IAA (Internationale Automobil Ausstellung).
Immediately after its unveiling, the new Monster 1200 R was given a very warm welcome by the public and media. The most powerful supernaked ever built by Ducati, made its official debut at this prestigious international showcase. This latest Ducati is just the first in a long, exciting series of new models to join the “made in Bologna” 2016 range – a range that represents, beyond any shadow of doubt, the biggest, most decisive attack on the market ever to have been launched by Ducati.
“No less than nine new models, including the just-unveiled Monster 1200 R, will be joining the 2016 range. Never before has Ducati presented so many new bikes and EICMA will provide the perfect platform on which to show them to all to our enthusiastic customers.
“The increase in sales is simply a consequence of just how incredibly well-received our products are – products that stem from implementing strategies that are in keeping with our identity, looking to new markets and taking on tough new challenges every day,” says Ducati.
Fitted with a new, more powerful engine with slipper clutch, ready to unbridle a racing attitude. Built on an improved chassis integrating a monocoque frame, together with fully adjustable suspension. Poised between road and track, between pure performance, technology and effortless handling, the 959 Panigale sports a breathtaking design. The ideal adrenaline-booster in the form of a Ducati superbike.
