For new generations of Ducatisti to understand the legacy of this legendary motorcycle marque, the company erected a museum at the heart of their manufacturing facilities in just a few months’ time.
This marvelous collection is a tribute not only to that museum, but also to the company and the motorcycles. Double-page, color spreads feature Ducati’s most important road and track bikes of the company’s 50-year history.
Also featured are color shots of manufacturing facilities and the museum itself, and archival images in both color and black-and-white depicting Ducati’s race heritage, period advertising, engineers’ drawings, and the designers and riders who have come to be inextricably associated with Ducati’s brilliance.
