An irreplaceable visionary, Massimo Tamburini, died of lung cancer April 6, 2014, after a long period of illness, according to the New York Times.
Known for their allure and reliability, Tamburini’s legendary designs helped change the face of the motorcycle industry.
“He always gave great élan to the shapes,” Bruno dePrato, the European editor of Cycle World magazine, said in a telephone interview on Wednesday. “This élan is not aggressiveness, with very edgy shapes and other excesses in styling. His bikes were just shaped by the wind.”
