Laverda SFC1000 review

Laverdas first motorcycle was singlecylinder bike produced in the postwar era to test the waters of the market. At first, single-cylinder bikes were all Laverda produced. Then, in the late 1961, the company ventured a vertical twin, considered quite a risk at the time. It wasn`t until 1973 that triples were offered, and it is these three cylinder engine for which Laverda is best known in the US. At first, the three cylinder engines were fitted with single-plane crankshafts that produced uneven firing intervals and an ungainly exhaust note.

Later, the crank-shaft received staggered 120 degree throws, resulting in a smoother cadence and more power as well. The Laverda SFC 1000 sporttouring model featured in this article has a 986cc triple, and engine that amassed an enviable record in racing over the years. Marzocchi suspension at both ends combined a comfortable ride with capable handling, while a trio of disc brakes along with an antidive compensator fitted to the front forks ensured safe, controlled stops.
