  • THE BOOK OF DUCATI OVERHEAD CAMSHAFT SINGLES

    When Fabio Taglioni designed his 100cc Gran Sport Marianna back in 1954, it was unlikely he expected this engine to have such a long and lingering influence on Ducati design. Over the next 20 years, the single was developed into myriad different types, in capacities up to 436cc, and was the first production engine to utilize desmodromic valves. Incorporating features that continue to this day, the overhead camshaft single would become one of the most important designs in Ducati history.

    Years of research have resulted in The Book of Ducati Overhead Camshaft Singles – the first book to document in detail all the types of Ducati overhead valve singles, making this book an invaluable resource to the collector, restorer, and enthusiasts of these magnificent motorcycles.

    Author Ian Falloon is one of the world’s leading motorcycle historians. He has written numerous motorcycle books, including the The Ducati 750 Bible, Ducati 900 Bible, Ducati Story, Moto Guzzi Story, Honda Story, and Laverda Twin and Triple Bible. He has a small collection of classic sporting motorcycles, including a Ducati 750 Super Sport, which he has owned since 1976.

  • THE BOOK OF THE CLASSIC MV AGUSTA FOURS

    Agusta’s classic four-cylinder dominated Grand Prix racing for a decade from 1956. When it was replaced by the new triple in 1966, Count Agusta decided to make the Four available in limited numbers as a production bike. To prevent privateers converting it into a Grand Prix racer that might embarrass the factory, he stipulated it be 600cc and have shaft final drive. The touring 600 eventually evolved into the 750 Sport and GT, and finally the America, but MV Fours were always built in extremely small numbers.

    As befit an engine that handed multiple World Championships to John Surtees, Gary Hocking and Mike Hailwood, the technical specification was staggering, and remains so to this day. This magnificent engine was always at the heart of MV Agusta, and it was this engine that created and sustained the legend.
