Tri Color 1998 Laverda 750S On Ebay
What a pretty bike! Is it an original tri color produced by the factory? Well probably not but someone sure had the right idea. I rarely see bikes that have been repainted that look spot on. This one does. Maybe it is just easy to make anything look good in green, red and white. Quality wise, it is hard to judge the paint by photos. Moving on from the paint, you have a standard 750s with roughly 9,800 miles on it. It is also graced with Arrow carbon fiber mufflers. I don't know if it is a full Arrow exhaust or just the mufflers. There is just something about the lines of the Laverda that just scream sport bike: it just looks right. The twin headlights, twin exhaust, stout looking frame, air scoops at the front: ok, enough of me trying to convince my self to bid.
From the auction:
I am selling my 1998 Laverda 750S. You won't pull up next to another of these rare Italian beauties! Tri-color paint scheme is in good condition. It runs strong, just had the throttle position sensor replaced as well as a new crank sensor. Odometer reads in KM so it works out to 9750 Miles This is a fast, flick able sport bike with all top shelf components...Brembo Brakes, Paioli forks and shocks, Arrow carbon fiber exhaust. Loves to be rev'd...This thing comes alive at 7000rpm. Runs great, looks awesome. There are some dings here and there in the paint but over all it is very clean! I have to many bikes and sport bikes are not my style any more (46 years old now...a little slower and prefer to stretch out a bit) so this one has to go.
Maybe the seller is on to something when he wrote, "Why ride a Ducati....be different." You won't pass many of these on the street and you will sure stick out with that paint scheme. It looks like the other benefit may be that you can own an Italian sport bike with quality components and not part with a lot of your savings, say compared to a Ducati or MV Agusta. Bidding is active on the bike and is hovering around $3,500 as of this writing. . Do we have any readers that own a 750s? I'd love to read some comments about them.
I was hoping to find a clip with some sound of the Laverda engine. No luck on that but I did find this video review of the bike. It is in Italian but gives some good close ups of the bike:
