MotoGP Technology Third Edition, a book by Neil Spalding

MotoGP Technology Third Edition, a book by Neil Spalding

Ref: 64595


Read all about the technology behind the fastest motorcycles on earth - bikes ridden by Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez and Andrea Dovizioso

MotoGP™ was created as the 21st-century pinnacle of motorcycle racing.

The intention was to create the most powerful and fastest motorcycles ever made, to develop the technologies needed to win, and to use those technologies to improve the motorcycles we see and ride on the road every day.

The bikes are all prototypes, developed for one purpose, lapping the Grand Prix circuits of the world as fast as possible. MotoGP™ commands the best factories, engineers and riders and there are now six factories on the grid. Each has its own views of how a winning bike should be designed.

This is the third edition of Neil Spalding’s Officially Licenced MotoGP™ Technology book, it's right up to date and packed with colourful detail.

Neil tells the inside story of the bikes from the MotoGP™ pit lane, providing new insight into the design of these racing motorcycles, including...

  • A review of all the point-scoring bikes of the last decade
  • An analysis of all the different factors affecting the design of a racing motorcycle
  • The technologies and skills they have had to master
  • Chassis development, including the science of chassis flex
  • Aerodynamic changes and the various designs of wings in use
  • The design of seamless shift gearboxes
  • Easy-to-follow graphs and tables showing the science of machine development at the summit of motorcycle sport

The book contains over 300 pages and 650 superb colour photographs and illustrations and provides a fascinating insight into how the bike factories compete at the very top of the game.

Aimed at the enthusiast who would like to gain a greater understanding of the technical and design issues facing MotoGP constructors, this fascinating book provides detailed analysis of the cutting-edge technology used in the sport’s premier class today. Each area of a racing motorcycle’s design is explained and separate chapters for each manufacturer trace the development of each machine over the years through to the detailed specification of the current version.

In the words of a senior MotoGP™ engineer… "This book is a milestone in helping people to better understand how racing motorcycles work."
