Museo Ducati - Essential reading before you go

A visit to the Ducati museum in Bologna is well coordinated and presented but over very quickly. With this in mind Museo Ducati, the book by Chris Jonnum and beautifully photographed by Peter Harholdt is essential reading before you go.

Along with a brief history of selected racing motorcycles the author points out subtle engineering or race day features which if you've made it all the way to Borgo Panigale will probably be of interest to you.
