motorcycle touring holiday Germany Europe classic Ducati Bimota Superbike experience
The SFC1000 is the last of the great Laverdas. It was a refined version of the Jota with a 120 degree crankshaft engine, modernised suspension components and brakes. But riding it is a truely sublime experience as each action needs to be planned and deliberately carried out if the machine is going to be enjoyed.
Laverda and Hailwood replica on the loose in Spessart. The combination of Jota pipes and Conti music ripping through the air was addictive.
One thinks that the Ducati is a tough bike to ride, but every control and chassis component feels softer after a comparison with the Laverdas unforgiving hardness.
3 ages of Italian sportsters, the latest one was the most dissapointing and has been sold.
