Product Description

Japanese Production Racing Motorcycles- Mick Walker

As Grand Prix Racing Motorcycles explains, the Japanese did not suddenly become proficient in the design and development of motorcycles when they first appeared in Europe at the end of the 1950s. Japan had been interested, involved even, with motorcycles since the beginning of the 20th century. True, early Japanese motorcycles copied Western design, a trend that continued for several years after the end of the Second World War. The Japanese were very much their own men, designing a succession of highly innovative machines, and not just for the Grand Prix worlds benefit. Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, Bridgestone and Tohatsu have all built racing motorcycles which were also available for purchase by the ordinary motorcyclist. Content includes: Bridgestone, Honda; The Classic Years, Honda; The Modern Years, Kawasaki; The Classic Years, Suzuki; The Classic Years, Suzuki; The Modern Years, Tohatsu, Yamaha; The Classic Years and Yamaha; The Modern Years.
