For the enthusiasts, the famous Laverda 1000 V6 that raced the 1978 Bol d'Or is one of the most ambitious achievements of Italian engineering. But, beyond its unique technical features, many ultimately know very little about this legendary machine built in less than 18 months thanks to the passion and enthusiasm of the small family company of Breganze.
It is in this spirit that this book has been written during many months of hard work to find and collect testimony, factory documents and exclusive photographs, to tell with precision and detail the extraordinary adventure of this legendary machine that remains to date the only real transposition of the F1 technology to the world of racing motorcycles.
This book, dedicated to the complete history of this technological challenge, includes plenty of information and illustrations that had never before been revealed to the public, and will allow to understand the secrets of construction of this incredibly complex project and the level of skill and courage that were necessary during the late Seventies to achieve the development of a racing motorcycle capable of participating at the greatest of all endurance races and demonstrating a level of performance unmatched so far.

MOTO GILERA: UN SECOLO DI TECNICA E SPORT

The origins of Gilera in the motorcycle world go back to 1909, 100 years ago, when Giuseppe Gilera established this brand destined to leave a profound mark on motorcycling history, and not only that of Italy. The remarkable entrepreneurial ability of Gilera enabled the Arcore company to achieve great notoriety, both in the area of production bikes and in racing even before the Second World War, with two victories in the international 6 Days of regularity as well as success in the European Championship for speed. The sports commitment of the company remained a constant in subsequent decades until the Nineties. After a century, Gilera is now writing yet another chapter in its fascinating history in the field of scooters. The industrial and sports history, but above all a systematic catalogue of all the models constructed by Gilera since 1909 to the present day, constitute the fundamental parts of this work, destined to become an authentic point of reference for all motorcycle enthusiasts, those of Gilera in particular.
