What to Expect

Clever piece of stroker twin engineering that burns up the road very nicely but suffers from the usual Italian electrics; also suspect alternator and clutch. Chassis is better than rival Japs of the same era and well up to modern roads. Earlier Roadster version had 25 horses at a mere 7000 revs, lacked the 2C’s electronic ignition, and had a drum rather than disc front brake. Engines ran for 15-30,000 miles depending on abuse. Still the odd one howling around in reasonable nick but spares are very hard to find.
