LAVERDA 1000 JOTA - 1979

At the begining, this bike was due on the initiative of the Slater brothers in England. The main modifications were different camshafts, high compression pistons and a "racing" exhaust. The result was a more radical machine, more sport than roadster. In the face of the success of this bike, in 1979, the Jota joined the Laverda range.
