This is a history of this famous Italian marque whose following in Britain was given a further boost when British rider Carl Fogarty won the 1994 and 1995 World Superbike Championships on a Ducati 916.
The book covers every Ducati racing and production motorcycle from the cheap, post-war Cucciolo to the 916.
Every model, from the 125cc grand prix bike through to the 900cc Super Sport is analyzed along with the unique valve gear of Ing. Fabio Taglioni which became a Ducati trademark. Ducati folk heroes such as Mike Hailwood, Tony Rutter and Carl Fogarty are also featured
