Laverda Jota

Laverda Jota 1970s Italian classic motorcycle

The Laverda Jota was a stalwart Seventies superbike. It combined impressive performance with Italian styling. In ’76, the Jota’s top speed stat of 140mph was admirable. Particularly, given that it was sourced from just three cylinders!

Yet – for all its virtues – the bike might never have been launched. Prior to the Jota, Laverda had knocked out a few frankly average motorcycles. Average, but affordable. At the same time, a wave of cheap cars – like the Fiat 500 – rolled into showrooms. Non-bikers – especially, those with families – tended to plump for four wheels. As a result, Laverda came close to going out of business. In the nick of time, the management changed tack. They gave the green light to the two-wheeled exotica for which the firm is now renowned. Classic bike aficionados will forever be in their debt.

But, the bike’s British importer also deserves credit. It was they who suggested to Laverda’s top brass that the latter pack more power into what was already a perfectly pukka motor. Thank goodness, the marque’s managers rose to the challenge. Laverda lovers have not stopped dancing since! Now, they had an engine which did justice to the Jota’s impeccably-drawn lines.

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with?I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Thank you very much for asking! My site uses a Google 'Blogger' template. On top of that, I've done some 'CSS' styles-coding customisation. Best of both worlds, I think. I'm getting the power of the Blogger engine – plus, a bit of my own design work. You can take the latter as far as you like – if you have the coding skills. I went with Blogger for the Google connection … and I haven't regretted it for a minute. WordPress is very good too, apparently. The best of luck to you!

    Thank you! I started off with the Google Blogger 'Simple' template – then did a bit of CSS coding on top of that, to customise it some.
