Making something in honor of someone, is in itself a beautiful thing because it means that someone inspired you and then gave you something. See how our tribute to Lucchinelli and his career was appreciated by him and welcomed is a wonderful thing, it was a really great gift, thanks Marco.
The companies of the pilots of the past have nourished our passion for the two wheels. Today that passion has taken shape in the Italian Dream Motorcycle realizations. Every year, idm dedicates a motorcycle to one of the great pioneers of motorcycle racing. Our first job, wants to be a tribute to what is surely the craziest of our pilots, a rebel, a dreamer, Marco Lucchinelli.
In 1981 he finally won the world championship of motorcycling in the premier class 500. The title had escaped his hands the year before, were the golden years of the 500, crazy horse in fact wins with a race in advance the world, leaving behind the second place randy mamola, the third kenny roberts, and the fourth barry sheene. Having crossed the finish line, with his suzuki rg500 of the hen team, the new champion says: “I never want to do a race like that again, it cost me a lot of effort … At the start, I do not tell you what was leaving, we all had that uncertainty on the tires but I more in all I gnawed inside. I’m going to push and this time the bike weighed, how heavy it weighed. It is the first time in the year that it has not started the first time. I take another three steps, jump on while he takes and immediately pushes me under his ass. Everyone was passing by, even these Swedes whom no one has ever seen. Half a turn and step in front of the boxes: fourth mamola. At that moment my heart came up, I thought I had lost everything. After I started to come up, to reassemble, but the asphalt was getting wet and then even pass a Kopra (Kimmo, Finnish Suzuki rider, ed) became difficult: you had to do it in braking because in acceleration it was better not open everything else you went crosswise. I also found a fool, fau (bernard, French rider of Suzuki, ed), who has started to do the numbers to push me off the track. So I put a little ‘quiet only when I began to see his tail. How long has it been, you have no idea. At a certain point I step outside on the bend and still do not convince me too much because it can end badly. As long as I see the star on the blackboard, a bright star “(the star is the symbol chosen by Lucchinelli for himself). Our lucky legend is a tribute to him, his career and that world.
