The Laverda marque has had its ups and downs like most Italian marques. In and out of bankruptcy over the years it was always waiting for another white knight. Of course, in between they produced awesome motorcycles. The 750 was developed from a 650cc parallel twin. It produced over 90 HP. In 2000, the assets were taken over by Italian manufacturing conglomerate Aprilia. The frame designed by Niko Baker followed contemporary lightweight design with the engine hung from the frame. 12,000 miles on this unit.
