The 916 spearheaded the Ducati revival of the 1990s. Introduced at the end of 1993, this product of Massimo Tamburini and the Cagiva Research Centre took the water-cooled four-valve engine of the 851, placing it in an evolutionary chassis with revolutionary styling. The 916 immediately set new standards of performance for twin-cylinder machines, epitomised by its unequalled success in the World Superbike Championship. This book will trace the conception and development of the four-valve Ducati from its first appearance at the Bol d’Or in 1986. By 1990 Raymond Roche gave Ducati their first World Superbike Championship, this being followed by Texan Doug Polen. Star British rider Carl Fogarty then took over the reins, and along with Troy Corser and Troy Bayliss dominated the World Superbike Championship from 1994 until 2001. Along with the factory racers, all the related four-valve models will be covered in depth, from the initial 851 and 888, to the 748, ST4 and 996. All the variants, including the Sport Production series, will be detailed, along with the rare and beautiful Supermono. This book is the definitive guide to these legendary Ducati models. Ian Falloon is one of the world’s leading motorcycle historians. He has more than 40 years experience with motorcycles, spent 25 years writing for magazines around the world, and has written numerous books about motorcycles. He specialises in Italian marques such as Moto Guzzi, Laverda, MV Agusta, and of course, Ducati.

Whether it's a big-bore, high-end custom sportbike you're after, or a naked, bare knuckles streetfighting drag racer, this book has the goods for getting you there. In three different scenarios, the nation's top builders give blow-by-blow instructions for completely rebuilding three popular streetbikes -- from performance modifications and exhaust systems to flawless finishes and detail work. Focusing on highly customized Hayabusa drag bikes, including a slammed and lowered Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa, John Dantzler of the Charlotte, North Carolina, shop Two Wheel Customs outlines the suspension and engine modifications that the serious street and quarter-mile racer can make. He takes a salvaged, late-model four-cylinder street machine and transforms it into the kind of machine that both professional stunt riders and corner-carving enthusiasts favor. Next, author Mike Seate covers the details on constructing and installing popular modifications -- everything from engine crash guards and wheelie bars to motocross-style handlebars and bikini fairings -- while stunt riders and streetfighter builders from the United States and Europe weigh in with tips and advice. Last but not least, the builders at Wisconsins Patrick's Performance and South Carolina's Coastal Motorcycles provide a step-by-step account of the construction of two high-end custom sportbikes -- transforming a Yamaha YZF R-1 and a Suzuki GSX-R 1000 into the kind of machines that are eye-popping everywhere-on the streets or on the motorcycle show circuit.

Auszug: Die Ducati 916 ist ein Motorrad der Kategorie Supersportler/Superbikes des italienischen Herstellers Ducati. Sie war das erste Modell der Reihe 748 / 916 / 996 / 998. Die 916 wurde zunachst zur 1999 eingefuhrten 996 und schliesslich zur 998 weiterentwickelt. Die Entwicklung betraf im Wesentlichen den Motor. Das Design anderte sich nur in Details. Anders als die Modellbezeichnungen vermuten lassen, war der grosste Entwicklungsschritt der Wechsel zum sogenannten Testastretta-Motor mit Einfuhrung der 998 im Jahr 2002. Die im Rennsport entwickelte Neukonstruktion war nicht nur leistungsstarker, sondern auch belastbarer. Als die Modellreihe 2004 mit der 998 auslief, war bereits der Nachfolger 999 erhaltlich. Mit der 916 loste Ducati 1994 die 888 ab. Durch die stetige Weiterentwicklung der 916-Baureihe gelang es Ducati seine jahrelange Dominanz in der Superbike-Weltmeisterschaft fortzufuhren. Die Maschine sorgte seinerzeit durch das spektakulare Design von Massimo Tamburini und Sergio Robbiano und durch innovative technische Losungen fur Aufsehen. Sie war eines der ersten Serienmotorrader mit den Auspuffschalldampfern unter der Sitzbank ("underseat"). Dieses spater von vielen Herstellern ubernommene Designmerkmal hatte bei der 916 nicht nur aerodynamische Grunde. In Verbindung mit der platzsparenden Einarmschwinge ermoglichte es eine leistungsfordernde Gestaltung der.
