The exterior design by Image Design Custom, drew inspiration from the Rothmans Racing/Honda Racing Corporation NSR500s of the 1980s and 90s. Additionally, the livery reflects the builder’s admiration for Chelsea Football Club and its legendary captain, John Terry, evident in Terry’s iconic number ‘26’ on the fairing and rear cowl, as well as the ‘JT’ prefix in the bike’s name.
