Based on the existing 1973-1981 Laverda 3C model that made 85bhp @ 7,250rpm and reached speeds of more than 130mph, the new Jota made a big impression in 1976 Producing 90bhp and reaching speeds of 146mph, thanks to the factory racing parts fitted to the road engine directly at the factory, it was the fastest production motorcycle to date
The Jota model ran from 1976 through to 1982. The Jota is powered by a 891cc DOHC air cooled inline triple and had a dry weight of 234kg (515lb). Originally fitted with a crankshaft with 180 degree crankpin phasing and ignition timing on the right hand side of the engine till 1980.
