Modern Motorcycle Technology by Massimo Clarke is a brand-new release in the Motorbooks Workshop series.
It is an absolute must have!
Motorbooks has been pumping ’em out recently and I know we’ve gushed over more than a few, but this one is a real gem.
I’m a sucker for anything to do with engineering and technology.
And Modern Motorcycle Technology is right up there with the best of my primary motorcycle engineering collection.
Everything in the book is perfectly illustrated with very high-quality photos, line drawings, cutaways and artwork. I must say, the Italian book printing firm did a superb job with the layout and quality of the images and illustrations.
Everything you’ll ever need to know about the details of a motorcycle engine and the rest are here.
It’s everything from a look inside a motorcycle battery and how it works to a discussion on modern piston skirt design to how crankshafts are forged and how the main crankshaft bearings are ground.
You won’t get a better education on the inner workings of a motorcycle engine and the rest than with Modern Motorcycle Technology, especially for the $24.95 list price.
It’s actually a great bargain, considering how expensive books are today.
The book was just released and take it from me — it’s a definite must-have!
