The Superbike World Championship for modified production bikes was inaugurated way back in 1988, with high performance machinery normally destined for the road taking to the tracks for the first time to dispute a full championship season. The American Fred Merkel riding a Honda won the first two editions in 1988 and 1989. This was followed by a Ducati triple with titles for Raymond Roche in 1990 and Doug Polen in 1991 and 92. In the years that followed the likes of Carl Fogarty, Troy Corser, Colin Edwards and Troy Bayliss came to the fore aboard equally well-known bikes also raced in the same period by Pier Francesco Chili, perhaps the best-known Italian Superbike rider prior to the advent of Biaggi and Melandri. These 25 years are revisited for the first time in an official book that, season by season, reviews the technical, sporting and human stories of each championship through the ever-accurate texts of Claudio Porrozzi and above all the spectacular images of his brother Fabrizio, for years the official SBK World Championship photographer. Championship standings and statistics complete a book that is sure to be source of reference for all fans.
