The bevel-drive 860 and 900 was one of the most significant motorcycles of the late 1970's, providing a unique combination of power and handling that was unequaled by other motorcycles at the time. When Italian car stylist Giorgetto Giugiaro penned the 860GT in 1973 few would have believed it would evolve into one of the greatest Ducati line-ups of all time. The square-case 860 become the legendary 900 Super Sport, Darmah and eventually the Mike Hailwood replica, built to honor Hailwood's spectacular comeback victory at the Isle of Man in 1978. The square-case Ducati engine eventually lasted more than a decade, sustaining the company through a downturn in the early 1980's. This book covers every incarnation of this great model, from the first 860 through until the final Mille. Illustrated  with 200 pictures and with complete appendices of technical specifications, this book is a must have for any motorcycle aficionado.

Review:

"Books like this are tremendously important to motorcycling. On behalf of Ducati owners and motorcycling generally, thanks Ian." – Motorcycle Trader



Rapid Bikes, November 2008 Australian magazine There is a certain amount of romance that surrounds Ducati and this was never more prevalent than in the '70s. Ian Falloon takes the reader through the 860, 900 and Mille models. Each model has a special story behind it like the time Mike Hailwood ground the exhaust header pipe almost to dust during his stint on the Moreparts 750SS that he shared with Jim Scaysbrook during the 1977 Castrol 6 Hour. The book also takes an in-depth look at the early to mid '80s Ducatis like the Mille 1000 S2 with its unique color scheme and bright red fork legs. Ian has laced the pages with engine blueprints as well as individual model specs. If you have Ducati blood in your veins, 'The Ducati Bible,' by Ian Falloon is the book for you!



"Square-case bevel heads get excited! Ian Falloon, master of the Ducati Bible series has done it again ... it truly is a bible ... It also has complete appendices of technical specifications making it an absolute must-have for any serious ducatisti." – Two Wheels
