The 1974 Laverda SFC introduced a 750-twin engine which could out-horsepower the Hondas of the day. The motorcycle also was equipped with a racing saddle and state-of-the-art Brembo brakes.

Despite its state-of-the-art valvetrain, the SFC's engine wasn't designed to spin past 8000 rpm.
Laverda's 750-twin engine had 70 horsepower; the benchmark Honda 750 of the day had 67.
Huge Brembo disc brakes were used front and rear and were of competition caliber.
