This machine, just as the RS250,was purchased at the 2007 NEC Bike Show in Birmingham after the announcement that the Ultra-Lightweight 125cc & lightweight 250cc classes were to return to the Isle of Man TT Programme for 2008.

The bike, owned by Ian Barnes, was prepared and developed solely by Matt Jackson and ridden only by, 10 times TT winner,  Ian Lougher.
