Milder motor with new crankshaft that takes the edge off the Jota but still quite a handful compared with modern 600’s even though the RGS’s the best looking and handling Laverda triple – not quite out of heart attack country when the going gets tough. Engines typically run to 60,000 miles before needing a thorough rebuild, top end or gearbox most likely to need attention. Also Corsa and RGA versions. Getting to be very rare on the road, now; the older Jota’s are the ones with the classic status.
