Titanium Vision R68: any one own or seen one?

I'm looking to upgrade to a ti recumbent. I own a Vision R40 and have generally been happy with that. Upon doing a little research, it seems that Vision/ Advanced Transportation Products / ATP had a Ti version of their R60 Saber series. Vision Recumbent Bicycles: Guide to bicycle models and versions

Does anyone own or have seen an actual production version of this bike? Or is it a one-off unicorn they were advertising before they folded?

(please don't reply with all the other ti makes/models out there . . . if you know something about a ti Vision . . . it would be great to hear from you)

As an aside, The Bicycle Man's Vision web pages at one point claimed that the Vision tandem models came in a Ti version. I don't see the same statement there now. But I saw a very metallic grey Vision tandem on craigslist a few years ago that I didn't bite on. Perhaps all the Vision Ti models were custom?

It seems to me that Art Hagood in Chattanooga brought one to BRAT the year they came out. So I'm pretty sure it was a 'real' product. Sorry I can't tell you how many were made or sold, though.

I went back and found a pic of Art's bike and I think it was actually a steel bike that was just painted silver. So maybe the Ti version never made it to production?

Just as any bike, only as fast as the rider who pedals it.
