Winning Ways

This is the actual Laverda 75 Sport ridden by factory rider Genunzio Silvagni to win the 75cc class in both the 1956 and 1957 Motogiro races. The 75 Sport was also very successful in the Milano-Taranto event - winning the 75cc category in 1952 & 1953, taking the top 14 positions in the later event! The bike was also used for short circuit racing, with the lights & number plate removed. In this configuration power was upped to 12hp compared to 9hp at 10,500rpm in long distance trim. Wet weight 65kg. Top speed 75mph/120kph. Photographed by the very talented Phil Aynsley – his website’s a must see - near Vicenza, Italy. 2013. Laverda Corse collection.
