From midgets to Monsters, this book covers every product from the Bologna factory in the past 90 years, in chronological order. It also deals with the highs and the lows of the famous company, of which there have been many. More than once Ducati survived by the skin of its teeth, the nadir being the period of state ownership in the late ‘seventies that all-but finished it off. But with the brilliance of designs like Tamborini’s ageless 916 and even the era of Cagiva ownership and influence, Ducati has flourished to today represent one of the world’s most recognisable and prestigious brands, a fact not lost on current owners VW/Audi. As with all Ian Falloon’s books, this one is profusely illustrated and meticulously researched, and presented in such a way that it is a colourful and seamless trip through time. A must-have for the Ducati aficionado and the casual enthusiast alike.
