Having established its performance credentials during the 1970s, Laverda emerged from a succession of financial upheavals with a new range of machines for the 1990s. The first of these was the 650 Sport, and then in 1997 the 750S arrived featuring a new water-cooled 747cc motor. No expense was spared in equipping the 750S, which featured upside-down Paoli forks and rear shock, Brembo Goldline brakes with braided hoses, lightweight Marchesini wheels, stainless-steel Termignoni exhaust pipes and carbon-fibre front mudguard and heel protectors. Equally importantly, the six-speed gearbox – frequently criticised in the past – had at last been sorted.
This particular 750S was purchased in 1997 from the Dutch importer (invoice available) and is still brand new.
