The Laverda ‘spaceframe’ race machines were specially created by the factory to compete in European endurance events. Only three complete works machines survive, one is in the Laverda family collection and the other two machines are now with collectors/enthusiasts in Holland.

The factory took up these developments to produce the Jota between […]
