Just answered this a little while back, but since no one wants to believe it and are so insistant on being correct, it prompted me to dig up a couple photos.
hb88xx is correct, picture of std 750 F4 was taken at MV Factory in '02. The picture of me on the SPR was taken in Italy while riding in the Dolomitten in '03. Had the great pleasure, thanks to a very cool individual, to test ride the very first available SPR. Yes, the one that Cathcart rode and tested and then wrote about in the mags.
Lets hope the pics post thru, or I'll try again.
I have always loved the Matte black look of the SPR. very nice indeed.
