This is the Trinity Bullit motor. As the original AYK GZ240 motors the can actually is black colour but Trinity painted the can with a special colour what affeceted a coarse surface for better heat dissipation. I have seen this with other Trinity motors again but this time in black colour. The red colour was for the AYK based motors only.
As you can see the sticker on the motor was of bad quality. After some time the printing was rubbed off from use.

The 480 Gold is a 25x4.

The 240S is a 19t single.

The 240SB has the alloy endbell like the gold but is around a 19t double.

All very cool motors. Jr Rc just sold a NIB 240SB for $45..

Don't know if this helps with dates for the Kyosho motors,

but I received this with my Kyosho Maxxum back around 1988. I know the maxxum instructions says it comes with the 240St but this is what came with my maxxum kit that I got (I bought it when the maxxum was disscontinued and the whole kit sold for $89.99 with motor from tower hobbies). I also read somewhere (I forget) that the Turbo Ultima had it as well.

Is that 240-s motor a 16-turn motor?

It is a clip on iron tube for more torque and a Le Mans sticker with different design.
I love old stickers. :)
