750S FORMULA — 1999

Nicholas Frankl


If you ride a bike you have to, then the Laverda Formula, in bright orange and is not for you. In fact come to of it, forget it in any colour. The 750S is to what the Ferrari F40 was to supercars in 1988. Fast, brutal, and uncomplicated.

Both, strangely, the same power characteristics. little low down torque, but the terrific performance once on or in the F40’s case, on twin V8 serenade.

I have to admit on this occasion I got on much with the orange monster with a yellow cousin October. The weather helped, we been experiencing a sort of summer and what a nice it is to be able to use all the power and all the road the worry of running into a wet on an apex, at full chat.

Having been down to Coombe circuit, nestled in the countryside near to the beautiful of Bath, I jumped out of my Integrale and that on this sunny evening, it was time to visit my mum in for some famous home Plus the chance to open up the on some of my favourite tried and B roads.

With what a fine pair Termignoni both in design and decibel I headed off into the motorway the route already planned out to a good combination of high dual carriageway and serious stuff. The Laverda is a small I’m 6 ft and around 13 Ѕ stone and I do a bit of framework around/underneath me. The position is cramped, and hard on the wrists, not what you’d call around town.

With the fuel tank beneath the rear seat, the tank is in fact an air box. image the space saving if all air didn’t have to live such a big box! It is though comfy to lie on, which is what you to do if you’re to avoid a great full of buffeting and I don’t Warren, the great sage of

The 750 actually looks more a 600. Not, mind a 600, as no other manufacturer can such stellar looks such beautiful componentry.

you realise, immediately, is that parallel twin is totally unless you wind it up. It would that Laverda’s engine have been studying the Honda VTEC car engine on a field trip in Tokyo. sort of pasta/sushi swapfest, I as those engines, too, less than the best of curves, or rather no go at slowmo and of go at the high numbers end.

6,000 Rpm. Keep the here and let the smile across face widen like a in fresh sunlight. The rumble a roar, growing and surging you violently and just as you’re used to this cacophony of engine and induction parallel this near warp BANG 9,500 and it’s up a cog we go as the stops the fun.

Seemless gear changes are a just back off the power and the, fairly smooth is a inconsistent box, up, then go full on. Putting one’s and what ever other you like, down is also not a effort. The bike falls into corners and tends to a fluidity of balance where you don’t have to make corrections.

This is in no way hindered by the amount of grip afforded by the rubber and the rear suspension, the front set up is a tad harsh, but nevertheless beautiful to look at it must be and still amongst the best if not on the top step. As I swept over the downs, with the amber sun behind me, bright blue sky and roar horses below, I was as to biker heaven as I have come. Long straights, tarmac, hard corners and the odd 90° hander thrown in just for measure.

It is an emotive experience riding any bike, especially when are as special and evocative as a Laverda. bikes are not banzi rockets, as I as soon as I got off the 750’s and onto a Ninja 600R. But if you don’t to be one of the crowd on a Sunday lunchtime then I suggest you check out a Italian alternative.
