Just a quick question to the informed.

The 748R seems to be the best value and has the possible future investment potential but, if you were looking for a 748 for more than just that, what are the differences between the 748 R, 748 SP and 748 SPS ?
I’d have to consult Falloon for a detailed response but each of them were homologation specials for race series of the time (the 600cc IL4/750cc twin class). SP was first either ‘96 or ‘97 iirc, then the SPS followed a year or two later with a few performance enhancements, then the Gen1 R in 2000 and the Gen2 R in 2002.
