A beautiful book with some excellent photographs and illustrations. It covers some of the more in depth technology used by all the manufacturers from mighty HRC to the lowly WCM without getting into anorak territory. There are also short chapters on Electronics, Chassis, Suspension, Brakes, Tyres & Aerodynamics. All in all an excellent book and nice to have as a reference, now that the 990cc era is at an end.

I had purchased the first edition of MotoGP covering the 990cc years,and once I heard that the second edition was to be released, I immediately put in my order. Have just received the book,and, in my opinion, its even better than the first edition
.
Photographs, drawings, articles ..... everything is superb.

If you are into MOTOGP, you owe it to yourself to purchase both editions .

I was lucky enough to have been given the First Edition of MotoGP Technology as a gift, and was absorbed by the '990cc/Modern' MotoGP years. Having read, and returned to, that volume many times I placed a pre-order just as soon as a Second Edition was announced.

I'm entirely absorbed again, finding fresh insight, analysis and explanation. It's a credit to Neil Spalding that, what can be such a complex and exhausting area of technology, can be given such vivid, yet crisp explanations.

The images (especially when drawing attention to particular details) and articles are a fantastic read.

Some ground is obviously re-tread, as the depth of information springs from the start of, and now bridges the completed, '990cc' era. There's more than enough fresh content though to justify a Second Edition.

I have wasted much money buying motorcycle books that do not live up to the hype, they are more suited to rubbishy trivial coffee table type of books. This book is just the perfect book that puts the others to shame , it is well written with excellent photgraphs , none of the 'arty-fart ' type of rubbish that is regretfully quite common nowadays.Keep up the good work from a well satisfied customer.

I love MotoGP and the technology around it. It necessarily contains a mix of hard fact, speculation, rumour etc. but I think this just adds to the interest. Spalding knows his stuff and gets better each year - can't wait for the next edition.

I bought this book simply due to Mr Spalding talking on the telly. I found out about the book from twitter, it covers all aspects of the technology of motogp and to be honest some of it I knew and some of it I didn't..

But its good to read as a reference and also good to read as a general book.

If you like motogp and you are interested in the tech side, then this book is for you...

Enjoy it.

I bought this after listening to the author during Eurosport commentary (boy am I going to miss them next year) and was impressed enough to buy the book. Some of the stuff is obvious, but even that is made flesh by Neil placing it in the context of making this man-machine hybrid go fast.
The only way this book could be improved is by bringing it up to date in the 800cc era of MotoGP. If he does that, I'd happily pay again.

Quality publication with information on detailed alterations to each manufacturers bikes throughout the seasons with a good seperate section on the type of problems they encounter and overcome. Not technical, more "educated insider" knowledge which makes it an interesting read; and thus explains just why its not always the best rider who wins!!
Recommended for those interested in "why" performance changes and the influences that are addressed.

even not being a mechanic understood the workings of the bikes. very in depth knowledge of each teams thinking of how to get the best out of each bike for each rider.it felt like neil spalding wrote this book while he was in the eurosport commentary box with messrs ryder and moody with the way the book is written.
