A must have for any certified Ducatisti 14. November 2010
Von Philip S. Brooke - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Seems I can't get enough "Ducati" so when I heard about Marc Cook's new book about the design and development of the 1098/1198 Superbike series as replacement for the triple 9 I immediately lined up for delivery. I wasn't disappointed. The editorial description above is accurate but does not describe the quality of the book. It is very nicely hard bound. Under the dust jacket the binding is Ducati (well almost) red. The pages are heavy glossy stock and the full color photography on nearly every page is terrific and serves well to illustrate and add to the text. The author interviewed many of the participants in the 1098 project including Claudio Domenicali, in charge of product development, Gianni Fabbro, lead in house designer and Vincenzo De Silvio and Marco Sairu, architects of engine development among many others. These interviews add a great deal to the story of how a superbike is brought to life in a relatively small factory such as Ducati. The achievement is extraordinary in a way I didn't fully appreciate before reading this book. Marc Cook has done a commendable job of conveying to the reader the process. This book deserves a place on the shelf of any self respecting Ducatisti.

Needs more substance and technical info 18. März 2011

Ducati 1098/1198 The Superbike Redefined

After a first read, I felt there wasn't a whole lot of substance in this book. There aren't many descriptions, explanations, and justifications for their designs. I had a growing list of questions, being new to Ducati. I had heard of their reputation, how Tom Cruise loves Ducati motorcycles, how Ducati is akin to Ferrari for motorcycles. But my questions were still lingering. For instance, why do they use timing belts and showerhead/overhead injectors on the velocity stacks instead of timing chains and port fuel injection? Why doesn't Ducati develop more V4 production engines? Why does Ducati use a V4 for their MotoGP bikes and not a L-Twin like their production bikes, or vice versa?

After the first read, I decided to do some first-hand research. I was looking to purchase a new motorcycle anyhow, so I went to the local dealer and chatted with the mechanic and sales reps. I also talked to some die-hard MotoGP fans and motorcycle racing enthusiasts. The bits and pieces I gathered was that Ducati could not effectively compete with their L-Twins against the Inline 4 engines with the same displacement, hence the need to go with a V4 in racing. Ducati's engineering is very unique, in that they develop everything to work cohesively with the engine so as to not disturb handling, braking, acceleration, etc... With some domestic auto makers like Ford, they build a car and shoehorn in an engine or design a car and select the powertrain and drivetrain out of a catalog of mass produced items to see which fits, is the lightest, and the cheapest. So Ducati most likely cannot ditch the L-Twin and shoehorn in a V4 into their current models without extensive and expensive re-designs, not to mention venture away from the tradition of L-Twin engines.

I decided to read through the book again, and I began to understand why they chose some of those designs. Weight reduction and performance. Two concepts that I hold dearly as a gearhead. Timing belts and the pulleys/cogs are significantly lighter than timing chains, hydraulic tensioners, tensioner arms, and sprockets. The camshaft lobes have weight reduction holes, the Desmodromic valvetrain may be antiquated in idea as modern spring metallurgy has worked well with high RPMs in resisting valve float, but the Desmodromic valvetrain works just as well or better in the same application without all that extra weight!

So after a few reads, I found the book to offer a profound insight into the design and processes involved with bringing the 1098/1198/848 to market. While I felt the book would benefit from more in-depth discussion of technical characteristics, design strategies or hurdles, the book offers a 30,000 foot view of the 1098/1198 Superbike and managed to convert me into a new Ducatista.

Overall: 4/5 stars

Excellent overview of a great machine 2. Januar 2012
Von John Joss - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a sequel to the author's earlier work (with Alan Cathcart), "Ducati 999: Birth of a Legend," which covered the evolution of the predecessor to the recent 1098/1198 sportbike leaders in the Ducati lineup, now superseded by the Panigale. The 1098/1198 was a radical step forward for Ducati in power, torque and weight, thus 'redefining' the sport motorcycle and creating the book's theme. It was as radical a departure for Ducati as the beautiful 916, and replaced the 999, a machine that many considered an exercise in ugly that was completely atypical of the Bologna manufacturer.

Marc Cook, a highly experienced motojournalist with excellent credentials and uncommon skills, is clearly the 'go to' guy for publisher David Bull when considering Ducati as a subject. Bull's over-all business model is effective: feed hard-core enthusiasts for specific makes and models of car and motorcycle, and iconic figures, books that are beautifully produced, slathered in detail, great photographs, quotations of key individuals . . . the heart and soul of the matter. In the case of the two Ducati books, it's like an intimate, guided tour of the factory, including time spent with all the key individuals involved. Bull's GSX-R book was similarly motivated and executed.

Few significant details of the 1098/1198 are left uncovered. Cook starts logically by analyzing Ducati's basic business, showing that the 1098 (as it started out, before SBK rules permitted a capacity increase) formed the basis for Bologna's sales growth and became its flagship machine. He also shows, through interviews with CEO Gabriele del Torchio and product-development manager Claudio Domenicali, how Ducati had to rationalize its product line and reduce the number of models to manage the proliferation of SKUs. Interesting stuff, presented thoughtfully.

He moves on to analyze the styling exercise, the development of the over-all motorcycle, the engine with its greatly enhanced performance, the frame (which he, like some other writers, calls a 'chassis,' a designation more suitable for cars), riding impressions (including material on the great Troy Bayliss), and a detailed comparison of the 1098 vs. the 1198R. This is material that could only have been obtained through close cooperation with the manufacturer. By now Cook no doubt has an employee badge, a room set aside for him at the local inn, a permanent table of his own at several trattorias and a string of Italian lovelies at his beck and call. Lucky man.

Cook devotes an entire chapter to the 848, a motorcycle that many sensible riders consider preferable to the 1098/1198 unless you're racing in SBK. On the highway, the 848 is a more balanced, accessible machine that delivers less power and torque but does so in a much more manageable way. The 848 does not generate the occasional "omigod-I'm-about-to-die" sensation delivered by modern Superbikes, not just the 1098/1198, when ridden near their limits on highways occupied by walls, fences and other vehicles, vs. the much safer track. He concludes with a chapter on the manufacture of the motorcycles and a brief epilogue.

The photographs and illustrations are magnificent, worth the price of the book alone, and include CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) images of various core components. The index is detailed and useful. Missing, sadly, are power and torque curves, an absence about which this reviewer whined in the case of the 999 book. This is, for the genuine aficionado, a serious omission that is mystifying to the serious reader. Ducatisti want to know but David Bull does not tell us.

In sum, Cook has done it again, indeed has exceeded his earlier effort with the 999. This is an irresistible book for any 1098/1198/848 owner, or for any of the numerous Ducatisti who revere this iconic marque. It shows that Ducati is not just another motorcycle manufacturer but a wonderful idea created by passionate Italians (with help from some auslanders) that takes root in the hearts and minds of enthusiasts.

All the book lacks is a CD or DVD that would convey the magnificent Ducati v-twin rumble, preferably through race pipes. Now Cook has to go back to Bologna and do the job on the Panigale, and include power/torque data. They're waiting for him.

Great story and photographs if you are interested in motorcycles, essential reading if you own a Ducati 1098, 1198 or 848. A really interesting insight into the design, development and building of the latest Ducati Superbike models. Good value for money from Amazon and the publisher, David Bull Publishing.

First up I have to say I am a Ducatista to a 100%.Also for the past 2 years I was
earning a living working on these fine Italian Machines,they are a piece of Art!!
So I did get to know those Superbikes .I also was fortunate enough to test ride each one of those models mentioned in the book.(Including the 200HP Desmosedici!)
I read the book back to back in 2 day's as soon I got it.
I love it,it has great photos and drawings, it is well illustrated.
The text is easy to understand even if you never worked on bikes before.
I can only recommend this well made book(unfortunately it is still printed in China!!)
