Just Add To Long List Of Legendary Names: Laverda

The Laverda 1000 V6 typifies the Italian penchant for spontaneous bursts of creative genius where machines are concerned. Having been part of the rebirth of Italian motorcycles in the 1970s and eventually declining in the 1980s, Laverda is yet another iconic work of engineering intrigue born in Italy.

Not exactly known for its smoothness and must have been hard to handle, the prototype featured a monster V6 engine by way of Giulio Alfieri - more known for his work with Maserati than motorcycles - who was commissioned by Massimo and Pietro Laverda.
