RC45 envy. Pure and simple.

I spotted this RC45 in the garages at the Spa Bikers' Days Classic. I couldn't find the owner so I'm afraid I don't know anything about it, other than what you can see here.

It's been nudged into this century with Ohlins superbike forks and Brembo monobloc brakes and an Ohlins rear shock.

At first I thought it was a track-only Endurance racer styled bike, as it's running one headlight, however it was road-registered too.

As fast an an Aprilia RSV4? Probably not. Prettier? I think so.
