The Grand Prix Motorcycle: The Technical History by Kevin – Review

Some folks MotoGP racing because of the involved, others, and I have a that would be many of are more interested in the tech of things, it’s not who is riding it’s what are they If you count yourself among the group, Kevin Cameron’s new The Grand Prix Motorcycle: The Technical History, is something want to read. Although the format and glossy pages you think it’s one of those table books soon in reality, this is a complete of the top level of motorcycle racing the FIM World Championships beginning in right up to the present day motorcycles in

The championship motorcycle for each is presented with a color and full technical details a timeline with all of the year’s and how the bike fared. Each has an accompanying one page essay a description of the engineering involved and technical and development issues with competitive developments the other manufacturers. There are a series of longer essays the various eras from the British development to Gilera and MV, competition from Honda challenged the MV, the Kenny Roberts Rainey, Doohan, the return of 4 and much more.

Kevin Cameron, who most of you from his many Cycle and earlier Cycle articles, the entire history from the of someone with a deep understanding of the motorcycles who enjoys us what he knows.

It’s striking how, in the years, MV Agusta dominated the with a first win in 1956, after Gilera won in 1957, MV returned with an uninterrupted of championships from 1958 1974!

Cameron also out the inherent power delivery of the 2 strokes and how the machines in that though incredibly powerful, hardly be ridden by the best making the transition back to 4 a welcome change for many, by decreasing lap times as the riders better control the power and out of the turns.

If I have an issue with the it’s the availability, or rather of it. The book is just out and on Amazon it went on back order, it’s been in and out of stock It looks like you can also through Cycle World though Amazon should be more very soon so an will likely be filled long.

If you want to get a good sense of the technical history of racing at the level, how engines, tires, and every other detail, as experience and knowledge increased, is the book you’ll want. recommended.
