This bike is actually the first P55 (F1) to ever leave the factory in Shenstone on 1st April, 1990, weeks before the second was supplied to a customer.
Through an agreement with Philippe LeRoux we got it to race it in the German "Battle of the Twins" Series. Thus we used the F1 concept months before the factory could, the BoT being a prototype championship whilst the British championships, being production bike based, demanded a certain number of bikes produced to make the bike "production based".
It was entered in its first year with just the exhaust and the inlet tract plus the fairing differing from production standard. In the following years it aquired a different swinging arm and front forks, a different exhaust yet again, different carbs, high-comp rotors, aero engine twin-plug trochoids etc, etc.
