Triumph Daytona 955i

The awesome Daytona 955i – heavily revised earlier this year and now sharper, lighter and faster than ever – remains the flagship of the Triumph range.

Launched in 1997, gradual development and continual improvements had always kept the Daytona competitive, but the latest engine, chassis and bodywork redesign elevated the machine to new levels of performance.

Powered by Triumph’s second-generation fuel-injected engine – more refined, quieter and with lighter internals – the Daytona breathes easier, runs cooler and revs higher. Packing a mighty 147bhp punch it’s capable of blistering acceleration on the track while the generous spread of torque ensures its road going performance is as useable as ever.

The new lightweight chassis has won much praise for its first-rate, confidence-inspiring handling thanks to the combination of shorter wheelbase, steeper steering geometry, lighter twin-sided swingarm, lightweight 17′ front wheel and multi-adjustable suspension.

For 2002, a striking third colour choice – Acidic Yellow – is added to the popular Caspian Blue and Aluminium Silver options.
