Well.... Mostly, anyway....

Just as a point of interest, the Laverda Jota (a 1000cc triple, originally a UK-only importer-tuned special based on the Laverda 3C) used 180 degree cranks for most of the production run, although Laverda did switch to 120 degree cranks towards the end.

Sounded rather special - you could clearly hear the gap in the firing order when it was at cruising RPM, like a 4 with a cylinder missing...
