The Comet was a less expensive, affordable alternative to the big twins. It was often referred to as “Half a Vincent,” but it still had the desirable mile-eating capabilities of its bigger brothers. A racing version was also available on a limited basis, the Grey Flash, which helped to publicize the model.
