The 1988 Laverda SFC 1000 had unusal stylistic touches, such as gold-painted components and an aluminum gauge panel. The bike also featured floating disc brakes and advanced calipers.

The aluminum gauge panel is dominated by a large tachometer redlining at 8000 rpm.
Floating ventilated brake discs are gripped by Brembo calipers.
With the shift to a new crankshaft in the late 1970s, Laverda's triple gained smoothness and power.
Gold-painted frame, wheels, and suspension components added a distintive touch.
