Motorcycle Design and Technology takes the rider under the sleek surfaces of the modern motorcycle to provides detailed answers to these questions and numerous others. Author Gaetano Cocco begins by examining how things like friction, lean angles, centrifugal force, suspension loads, and other environmental forces influence motorcycle design. He then discusses how a motorcycle's main systems-chassis, suspension, powerplant-work both together and in isolation. To know thy bike is to know thyself-at least when it comes to deriving maximum performance from both man and machine.

Motorcyclists know that bikes are the point where the technologies of performance and the thrill of movement converge. But what is it about motorcycles that makes them perform in the dynamic, exhilarating way that they do? How can they lean so deeply into a curve? Why do they accelerate so rapidly? How can they stop so quickly? Motorcycle Design and Technology takes the rider under the sleek surfaces of the modern motorcycle to provides detailed answers to these questions and numerous others. Author Gaetano Cocco begins by examining how things like friction, lean angles, centrifugal force, suspension loads, and other environmental forces influence motorcycle design. He then discusses how a motorcycle's main systems-chassis, suspension, powerplant-work both together and in isolation. To know thy bike is to know thyself-at least when it comes to deriving maximum performance from both man and machine. Motorcycle Design and Technology provides the knowledge to allow you to get the most from your next ride.

Entertaining read... but don't use it as a design or a technical reference. So many drawing examples with no text covering what is being shown it isn't funny. Poor editing, shaky math and off the wall examples having no purpose (forks lying parallel to the ground?) make this an example of "buy a used copy" and don't reward the writer with any extra royalties.

This book is all about the general theory behind suspension, frames, and tires. It provides a host of formulas complete with supporting graphics. Great stuff to impress your friends. What this book is not is a how-to manual for setting up a race bike, and/or resolving the likes or real world scenarios you would encounter on or off the track. The chapter on engines is mostly about vibrations, forces of rotations, and how they bolt into frames. The language conversion (Italian to English) is proper, but not smooth-often making it hard to determine if he's staying on the subject. If you want one book to learn the most from, buy Keith Cameron's Sport Bike Performance Handbook (ISBN076030229). If you have money left over, buy this one. However, this book would be a great (okay...excellent) gift item for anyone that rides street or track performance motos. By the way, it equally covers Italian, Japanese and German designs.

This is a classic treatise on the subject, and excellent reading for anyone interested in the physics of how their motorcycle handles. The reality is, most folks would be bored to tears by the topic, but the author does a wonderful job of explication. Perhaps not as accessible & engaging as Kevin Cameron's or Gordon Jennings' technological explanations, but close.

The content is great for helping anyone with a moderate knowledge of math and physics understand the forces at work in motorcycle dynamics. And while most of us ride and do what we do without understanding why, this book will allow you to add the kind of knowledge that can only lead to more expert riding.

The binding of the book is tragic ... I've not completed reading the book and fully 1/3 of the pages broke loose from the binding. I'm going to have it spiral bound before finishing the book.

This book is a great compliment to Motorcycle Dynamics. That book has better and more thorough explanations of the physics, statics and dynamics, but this book has great graphics. And it is always nice to have two books to go between when trying to understand complex ideas.

This book has a substantial amount of reviews here, so I'll be brief. I think this book isn't perfect, but I think if you are interested in designing motorcycles or understanding the physical dynamics of a moving motorycle then you must have it.

As has been noted, the translation is mediocre, but in the few tough spots there are you can manage through it if you think about it.
Very technical but in a easy, flowing way. You don't need to be an engineer to read, understand and enjoy it. And once you do, you'll understand so much more what your bike does and why. You'll also understand why you don't see balloon tyres and other bling accessories on racing bikes.
