Produced entirely in 1996, these bikes came in both red and yellow.  The factory site publicity phots showed them as being fitted with self coloured mirrors and rear seat covers, although the ones that made it to New Zealand all had black mirrors and lacked the rear seat cover.  They had the exhaust expansion box fitted as standard.  Given the model was produced before any of the engine upgrades, and well after supplies of the original engine castings were exhausted, all these bikes should have the engine upgrades fitted.  They also benefit from a chip upgrade to remove the flat spot in the earlier mapping.  The first models produced came fitted with WP suspension, both front and back, the later bikes have Paoli suspension.
