In the market for an upgrade in the next few months & I have a few bikes in mind, (but I'm always open to suggestions! :grin namely: TL1000S, TRX850, an old duke, Aprillia SL1000 Falco, etc etc. I have been seeing some Laverdas around for sale, (apart from the triples of old) & just wanted to know more about them, are Laverda still going? Hard to get parts for? Still triples? Temperamental Italians? Their Wikipedia entry states that "Laverda is an Italian manufacturer of Combine harvesters and one-time a manufacturer of high performance motorcycles" Not a great start! Any info would be helpful, thanks in advance! BTW, if you have any bike suggestions, let me have it! Prefer character, not i4, budget around 7-10k. Cheers!
