Yeah, I've seen that quote too, but I've also seen the RS referred to as the first production bike with a full factory fairing, which is probably closer to the truth.

I understand that there were only about 200 Black Princes built during a production run lasting less than two years, so they are a rather elusive animal. Ya gotta admit, they have the looks only a mother could love . . .
