The Laverda "Diecimila" project is based on a 1980 Laverda 180° 3 cylinders. The name "Diecimila" means 10.000 in Italian and was chosen as our Laverda triples engines are able to reach 10.000 rpm while remaining perfectly reliable. Even for this particular road bike this performance is possible although we fitted, after having very accurately balanced them, the factory crankshaft and conrods.
