Team Suzuki : A Definitive Analysis of the Factory's Roadracing Motorcycles Hardback
First published to great acclaim in 1982, "Team Suzuki" by Ray Battersby (Osprey Publishing) quickly sold out but was mysteriously never reprinted.
This new edition, some 25 years later, is only the fourth title from start-up Parker House Publishing - naturally enough perhaps as Tim Parker was the original publisher of the book.
Arguably "Team Suzuki" is the best motorcycle racing history ever written.
Such is the depth of research and detail revealed. Author Battersby, a career engineer, is a gifted writer able to describe technology for the layman and construct a biography, both in a most compelling, natural and fluid style.Suzuki, with Honda, was the global roadracing leader in the 1960s and 1970s.
Its two-strokes led the field giving fame and fortune to Barry Sheene, Randy Mamola, Graeme Crosby, Marco Lucchinelli, Franco Uncini, Pat Hennen and the British brat-pack of Grant, Parrish, Newbold, Findley and the like.
