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...
Heh! Drunk Italian Engineering notwithstanding...

Here's the sound the Laverda makes, I don't have the associated pic of it vibrating like a freakin washing machine!!
