From the cover: “More than 140 bikes are here, grouped in order of production to tell the story of the motorcycle’s thrilling high-speed evolution over the last 100 years.
These are the fastest and finest machines of their day, displayed in more than 500 full colour images from many of the two-wheeled world’s leading photographers. It’s a book that will entertain and inform all those whose hearts beat faster at the sight, sound or feel of a fast motorbike. Riders of modem superbikes will find many of their favourites in action here, from the awesome four-cylinder Suzuki GSX- R1000 and Kawasaki ZX-12R to the unmistakable Harley-Davidson V-Rod.
The Ultimate History of Fast Bikes shows how their design can be traced all the way back to the FN four of 1906 and the Harley- Davidson Model 11F of 1915 — models that seemed equally rapid and sophisticated all those years ago.”
