|Estimate||£3,250 - £4,000|
|Result||Sold - £7,840|
Purchased by the vendor in 2009 and immediately forming part of his collection, this Laverda has been used very little in the last six years. The three cylinder 1116cc engine, we are advised, runs well with no known faults; the bigger, less stressed engine capable of delivering comparable performance was what differentiated the Mirage from Laverda's original super-sports triple, the 1,000cc Jota. Supplied with a V5C registration document, this is a typically handsome Italian motorcycle, Laverdas are generally expensive but are considered good value in terms of their macho individuality which attracts a enthusiastic partisan following.
