Tracing the history of two-wheeled grit and glory, Motorcycle: The Definitive Visual History covers more than 1,000 of the world's greatest machines, from the earliest prototypes from the mid-19th century to the dynamic speedsters of today.

This book comprehensively catalogs the most important motorcycles of each period, along with their specifications and distinctive features. Histories of machines such as Honda and Harley-Davidson (and the men behind them) reveal the origins of these now-household names. Iconic motorcycles of each era, such as the 1970s Kawasaki KZ1000, are showcased with specially commissioned photography, and "virtual tours" reveal the anatomy of these legendary motorcycles in mesmerizing close-up.

Whether an object of curiosity, affordable means of transport, symbol of rebellion, or first choice for full-throttle thrills on road or race track, motorcycles are lovingly chronicled with stunning visual detail in Motorcycle: The Definitive Visual History.
