~ The Laverda V6 ~

Steve,

The impressing V6 was rolled out during the visit and demonstrated by a factory test driver (he probably fell of a couple of test bike seeing his scar face). I don't know it from first hand but the sound must have been incredible beautiful while the guy really was pushing it a little bit in the first two gears flying around the factory. As far as I know it raced only in the Le Mans 24 hours, think about it "full speed at the Mulsanne straight".............................. WOW! What I do remember from the papers that it was incredible fast. Too bad it never came any further than this.

Cheers,
