Was very disappointed not to see one single Bimota model. This book is the showcase of the Moto expo at Gugenheim in 1998. Laverda, MV, Giuzzi and Ducati were well represented in the expo, so why no Bimotas on the display? Plenty of Hardly Ablesons, though. Maybe the book should have been called The Art of Yestrday's Technology... Aside from that minor gripe, the book and the execution is great.

The book has all various model years all the way un to 1998. They had plenty of Bimota stock to choose from but didn't. Now I ask you how can there be a collection called The Art of Motorcycle without at LEAST one Bimota present.

Yeah that's just not right in my opinion. Anybody that's got even the smallest amount of appreciation for engineering and design, would have to rate a lot of different Bimota models right up there with the best.

I don't get it, why on earth would a book with a title like this, not feature Bimotas?
