Review: Ducati a Photographic

Ducati has a brand awareness and that far outstrips its actual in the world of motorcycles. Whether it is at a night, a Starbucks or the latest movie. it seems Ducati is these days. Everywhere is, except in print.

There are few books on Ducati, so Ducatisti have a cause for celebration one is released. Today Ducati reviews the new book, Ducati a Tribute from Ducati fan and photographer, Phil Aynsley.

Aynsley has only ever Ducatis and it is clear from the photo in the book, a shot of a 125 Sport motor that on the cover, that his passion for the has been well combined his profession of photographer. Phil set out to a photo book and has remained to his word. There are only 5 of text, the forward from 3 World Superbike Champion and Australian, Troy Bayliss, an from Phil and 3 pages Ducati guru, Ian Gowanloch.

Gowanloch acts to introduce the 3 sections of the book which ‘The Race Bikes’. Road Bikes’ and Ducati motorcycles simply entitled Rest’.

The racers section the obvious such as Troy and Casey Stoner on the factory Superbike and MotoGP team but also the not so obvious. How about McCoy in 1996 on a Ducati Or the gorgeous 1955 Gran the first model designed by Taglioni after he was lured from Mondial.

The rest, of course, was history.

A of mine are the shots of Raymond astride the booming Ducati 888 at the round of the 1989 World championship at Oran Park in Australia. It is reminiscent of a different early in the series when it was to believe that a twin beat the Japanese multis. A when it was okay to race a series on a track lined concrete walls.

Oran Park has recently closed.

The road bikes illustrates how close Ducati were to the models which raced, especially in the early Perhaps the modern epitome of is the halo model, the Ducati RR. However the book is strewn other examples from the 851 to the 500 pantah.

Of course the 750SS is and not just any 750SS but the one the author for 30 years.

The beauty of Tamburini’s 916 is represented, along with of the more humble machines a 100 Mountaineer. Tamburini’s other gem, the Paso is also in its ultimate 907 I.E form. Such is skill with the lens and for his subject that the book from mere photography to art. One of my favorites in this is a series of 3 photos of the failed 500GTV parallel twin.

Phil highlights the mini styling beautifully.

Perhaps the surprising part of the book is to last. ‘The Rest’ is to Ducati products that the company’s interest in motorcycles. we can clearly see the beginning of the famous style whether it be in the 1940 intercom or the various radios are highlighted. There is the 1960 V8, F1 shavers, drawings and even out motors!

It is only fitting the final is a profile of Fabio Taglioni his 80th birthday celebrations in The engineer died shortly making Phil’s photograph the last professional shot of the man.

I’ll leave the words to Phil Aynsley

“Ever since buying my Ducati in 1972 I’ve taking photos of them. How you not?”

Ducati – A Photographic is a must have for any true or admirer of photographic art alike. It is in the USA from AMS Ducati for $99 and in the UK from Volante for £65.00. You can check out of photos from the book on site .
