In the history of motorcycles, the Eighties are characterised by the unquestioned domination of Japanese machines. The progress of the Land of the Rising Sun is impressive: until the end of the Sixties, production only concerned utility models. The revolution came in the Seventies with the fascinating maxi-bikes, powered by exceptional engines but sometimes combined with inadequate chassis. Success was total in the Eighties: engines and chassis became the world’s best, their performance unapproachable. The Japanese motorcycles of those years imposed themselves on the market, became the new point of reference and sent all the other manufacturers into crisis. The technical layouts saw the spread of single rear dampers and complete fairing, the bikes ever more resembling racing machines with number plates and lights. The new motorcycles on display at the motorcycle shows each year embody a wealth of technological innovations: some are of great interest others, like the turbo, quickly go out of fashion. And the interest of the enthusiast is always at a maximum level.
