SPR or not

Does anybody have a headstock stamp similar to the attatched photo? Its not the "normal" 2003/2004 SPR logo....and its not on a 2004 750!

Any ideas to its origins??

Welcome!



But, that looks totally bogus: SPR uses SPR logo, and numbered xxx/300, and of course, would only be on an '04.

B4 750S [sold]
B3 675R [waiting]

Yes, but has anybody seen a logo like this on other bikes? MV italy are looking at it as well. Interested in tracking down certain history on this particular bike........

How about more pictures of the bike? Did you get a certificate?

Bought used, sound condition, VIn checks out as F4s 750 1+1 20O1 with engine number, Uk,Silver from factory (diamante? or was that just american for silver(!?). The only odd thing is the gold tag.
origional Importers aren't any help and I'm not in the country to track down pre-previous owners. Needs new boots which a friend will put on and then ready to ride end of season! Time on my hands to try and find some history......

More pictures required.

Sounds like its the same bike as mine (a 2001 750 1+1 EVOII). If the rims are a dark grey ("anthracite") colour then it's definatly the diamonte (silver) special. - it's not that special, just the diamonte paint job had a limited run.

i suspect that the tag may have been added to bump up the sale price (or insurance value)

Sounds right on the model, will try and add pictures to the gallery later today. Do you know how many were produced? The factory are a little "slow" on questions but hope to visit personally as i spend time in Italy.
It has casoli tuned exhausts and power commander and quite a bit of carbon but again not having much response from them. What was the origional spec for the bike apart from the paintjob?

I guess the "correct" badge is the Italian flag?

PS The price was great!

Just the paint job. The casoli exhausts and the carbon would have been added afterwards. Everything should be in line with the standard f4 750

......sure not the case, but sometime ago read an article about MV replicas made in China. Not the case i imagine, but maybe in future is a point to care about.

SUZUKI RG250 - YAMAHA RD 350 - YAMAHA RD 500 - SUZUKI RG 500 - SUZUKI GSXR 1100 - KAWASAKI ZXR 750 - DUCATI 851S - DUCATI 888 SP4 - MV AGUSTA F4 1000S
