Triumph 955i Daytona review

The Triumph Daytona 955i is a sport bike manufactured by Triumph from 1997 to 2006. It was powered by a 955 cc (58.3 cu in) liquid cooled, inline three four stroke engine. The bike was launched in 1997 as the Triumph T595 Daytona and renamed Triumph Daytona 955i in 1999.

The Daytona has always been Triumph's flagship sportsbike, so when the firm launched a new-generation sportsbike in 1997 it simply had to take that name. First unveiled as the T595 Daytona, the new bike had a very impressive spec, and was aimed at taking on the might of the Japanese top-class sportsbikes, such as Honda's FireBlade and Kawasaki's ZX-9R. 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. More specs and user manual of Daytona you can see in next overview.
