No idea really Baz although when I first saw it I thought 250cc twin but the site has it labelled NSR500 so could be the V

They made a 4, triple and twin cyclinder 500. Not sure if they were all denoted as NSRs?

Didnt they occasionally run all configs too? Okada often switched from the twin to triple .... I think.

The twin was designated as an NSR500V as ridden by Westy and Okada (to name two).

But yep, I do recall them running the twin and fours and vaguely recall Okada racing both in a season (not sure if Sete did similar to be honest either)

2 exhausts are on the same side so I'm sure it is the v4.

Is hard to tell because of the way it was done but for me, it is Doohan's helmet, has a #1 on the bike so would I expect be the V4 as MD did not race the twin and nor did it ever display the #1 of which I am aware

Must be a triple then ..... and maybe they just naturally exploded.

Actually its just an artwork .... I think there is much missing and a lot of artistic licence.
