    Hi guys - yah ok - idiot question. Was putting fuel at pumps on Sunday and this old geezer comes over and starts asking question after question re the Mille. He also telling me about his Nortons, Enfields and Truimphs etc so knew his stuff albeit some years back........So then he asks me whats RSV stand for......and I was stuffed if a knew so fobbed it and said "Race Series V" So what does it stand for the please ? I realise the Mille is the Italian for one thousand - so I am not that bad am I !!hahahaha - thanks - Len

    Got me?

    Mille is thousand in italian so we're both as bad as each other. The V obviously recognised the engine configuration but as for the RS, i'm stumped as well.

    If no one else comes up wit a solution or definative answer i'm using yours

    That sounds logical because the RS250 is a two stroke and they don't have valves!
