Synopsis

Motorcyclists know that bikes are the point where the technologies of performance and the thrill of movement converge. But what is it about motorcycles that makes them perform in the dynamic, exhilarating way that they do? How can they lean so deeply into a curve? Why do they accelerate so rapidly? How can they stop so quickly? Motorcycle Design and Technology takes the rider under the sleek surfaces of the modern motorcycle to provides detailed answers to these questions and numerous others. Author Gaetano Cocco begins by examining how things like friction, lean angles, centrifugal force, suspension loads, and other environmental forces influence motorcycle design. He then discusses how a motorcycle's main systems - chassis, suspension, powerplant - work both together and in isolation. To know thy bike is to know thyself - at least when it comes to deriving maximum performance from both man and machine. Motorcycle Design and Technology provides the knowledge to allow you to get the most from your next ride. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

This book is all about the general theory behind suspension, frames, and tires. It provides a host of formulas complete with supporting graphics. Great stuff to impress your friends. What this book is not is a how-to manual for setting up a race bike, and/or resolving the likes or real world scenarios you would encounter on or off the track. The chapter on engines is mostly about vibrations, forces of rotations, and how they bolt into frames. The language conversion (Italian to English) is proper, but not smooth-often making it hard to determine if he's staying on the subject. If you want one book to learn the most from, buy Keith Cameron's Sport Bike Performance Handbook (ISBN076030229). If you have money left over, buy this one. However, this book would be a great (okay...excellent) gift item for anyone that rides street or track performance motos. By the way, it equally covers Italian, Japanese and German designs.

Great for learning the theory, but.... 2. Februar 2006
Von GS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
...don't take everything as gospel. This isn't to say Mr. Cocco doesn't know what he's talking about, as he obviously does - he just sometimes doesn't make things very clear when he's using English as opposed to Italian. Some of it is rough translation, while some of it is just shoddy editing. In particular, I think whoever edited it didn't do much math or engineering. Some of the equations themselves have typos (an explaination of an equation describes two different variables when only one exists in the equation... but twice), many of the variables aren't explained, and some equations just don't make sense (a force divided by a distance equals another force). And the chapter on aerodynamics needs to be reworked - there are a few times when downforce and lift are used interchangeably even though they're opposing each other, and since those are the key points in the chapter it makes the rest of it harder to follow.

That being said, if you just take this as basic theory and don't try to build any mathematical models or anything off it, it's an excellent source of info. Mr. Cocco is one of the best in the field and does a good job of getting fairly specific in a relatively short book. The illustrations are great in demonstrating ideas that are hard to visualize just based on his writing, and the equations, if not completely accurate/explained, give a good basic idea of how the stuff is looked at analytically. It's also nice to have a book dedicated just to describing the dynamics and forces involved. So if you're looking for anything regarding engine tuning, look elsewhere. The extent to which engines are involved here are their affects on weight transfer, CG height, etc...

If you're looking for the most difinitive and thorough explaination of the subject, get "Motorcycle Dynamics" by Vittore Cossalter. Mr. Cocco did cite Mr. Cossalter as his main scientific source, after all. But if you'd just like to get a general "so that's why that happens" idea of all the little things your bike does, this is the book for you.

Interesting book, with many imperfections 7. Januar 2002
Von Alberto M. Marchetti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is very interesting because it helps understanding the physical behavior of a motorcycle. However it contains many errors and imperfections. E.g.: you can't introduce a formula without explaining the meaning of all the symbols or you cannot write "a.tan" instead of "arctan". If you need a more correct and scientific book, I recommend "Cinematic & Dynamics of a Motorcycle" by Vittore Cossalter, University of Padova.

This is a book on physics as it relates to motorcycles 26. August 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a good book if you want to read about the physics of motorcycles and the different technologies but it is not a design book. It has a lot of formulas (know your greek alphabet) but the math is simple. I found this book interesting but now I still need to find a book on design of motorcycles.
