Laverda. Now that's more like it.

Laverda realized the future was in large motorcycles and designed a 650cc twin, with an engine that resembled in no small way the currently popular Honda 305. Jack McCormick, who had previously contributed to the success of both American Honda and Suzuki, imported the new bikes into the US under the name American Eagle.
Even Evel Kneivel got into the action riding and jumping a Laverda in 1970.
