Nope, standard edition but only produced in 2006 I believe. In AUS I believe they decided to number them over there..

they excist in 750 (around 2002, evo2) and 1000 setup. do not know if the 750 went to the us.
no, the 2002 evoII special was diamonte(silver).

In matt black you have 3 choices:
the 2004 750 SPR (300 produced)
the 1000cc nero (which was only restricted to 21 in Australa, More elsewhere)
or The Veltro piste/strada (but it was not a strictly black paintscheme,),

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.

Enjoy....

fyi: the spr and nero are not the same color/texture. can't tell in the photo, but it's obvious up close. the spr is more like a chalk board--very very dark gray, or a slightly faded black. the nero is a true black, but matte in finish. both scratch very easily...

Indeed. And the matte black Brutales are another matte color altogether.

photos of mine in the gallery as well--i was told that they made 600 for the US market: 300 mono and 300 bi
I think there were 36 mono and 36 bi for the US (72 total).

Nevertheless, everyone gawks at my bike :drummer:

Hate to say it - but I love it and will never sell it.
