Strange the pics don't show the front view.If the vents have orange indicators, instead of black mesh then the bike is a Japanese spec version which is restricted to 75 bhp.
European bikes were 125 bhp.

This one doesn't say... I'd suspect it may be a Japanese import. Now they're trading for $40,000 in Japan so they'd make a tidy profit at the price advertised in the UK.
Anybody buying should be aware though...

I learnt this stuff as I spent a fair bit of time looking into the possibility of sending an NR to Canada around 5 years ago for a friend in Toronto...

If you scroll down it has pics of the front end. It's also listed on raresportbikes and guys are saying on there it is Japanese spec.

Ah, OK - I hadn't bothered to scroll down... :p
25 bhp down on a standard Euro / US model 750VFR makes it a bit less desirable.
I remember road tests on these when they were new. Apparently they ride a lot like a VFR 1990-1997 model. The 93+ models were styled a bit like NR 750's.

There's also a bodykit someone molded in France to make a VFR750 look a lot like an NR - A lot of work though!

it's a cool bike, but for that money i can think of at least 20 other bikes i'd pick over it.....and probably be able to afford them all together as well.
