I had a Mate in NZ that had one , smoky little bugger but he loved it !

Laverda took that Dream motor into consideration when they built the 750 SF .

The Laverda twin's cylinders bear an uncanny resemblance to the Honda 'Type I' cylinders

Even more than the cylinders Laverda copied the "bulletproof" bottom end of the Dream .

A riding buddy had one of those for a SHORT while. You can achieve the same effect by finding a street crew tearing up some concrete. Ask to use their jackhammer for about 15 minutes.

That's because they copied Honda - just as Bennelli did - the Bennelli 6 cylinder is basically a 500/550-4 with an extra cylinder on each end.

I assume you would apply the jackhammer to your rear end and handle bars rather than to the street. Sure does look awesome though. But nine out of ten say it is junk, so must be.

Eric is a good guy. I bet that his DR is a first class ride.

This looks like a good deal. 89 NX 250 for $1900 asking.

Good thing I don't have room in the garage as well or I'd be too tempted to get my Transalp a couple of little brothers.
