2004 DAYTONA 955i Europe's Most Popular Sportbike Transformed With Sleek New Aerodynamic Styling

New 2004 Models Arrive in US Dealerships

NEWNAN, Georgia - November 7, 2003 A distinctive interpretation of the sportbike ideal Triumph's flagship machine the Daytona 955i, makes its 2004 model showroom debut in Triumph dealerships throughout the US in December with sleek new shapes and curves. Featuring chiseled twin headlights, contoured mirrors and a redesigned cockpit for advanced aerodynamic performance, the Daytona consistently proves to be the intelligent superbike choice for those riders with a discerning design attitude and a drive for adrenaline.

"Inspired by the sleek, sporty design cues of our legendary Daytona T595, Triumph has perfected that sought after balance between design, power, usability, and instant response," stated Ross Clifford, Triumph Motorcycles Product Manager. "This 2004 Daytona is a powerful, sophisticated sportbike in the European tradition of Triumph."

The Daytona 955i's three-cylinder engine rewards the rider with a rich sound and a strong peak power output of 147bhp at 10,700 rpm. A peak torque of 74ft.lb is delivered at 8,200 rpm with an immense spread of power throughout the rev-range. This Daytona's aluminum alloy chassis provides a perfect blend of stability and responsiveness. The 45mm telescopic forks and rear monoshock are 3-way adjustable in preload, compression and rebound damping.

Liter class sportbikes utilize performance tires, and the tire sizes of 120/70-ZR17 (front) and 190/50-ZR17 (rear), allow the use of all the best sport rubber. The front brakes feature twin four-piston calipers clamping 320mm floating discs. In the rear, a single twin-piston caliper grips the 220mm disc.

The new 2004 Daytona 955i is available in Jet Black, Tornado Red or Racing Yellow. A special edition Daytona, with Jet Black paint work and textured black finish on the frame, wheels and swingarm is also be available. For the rider who wants more, a full range of Triumph accessories allow him or her to sharpen the Daytona's focus and refine its purpose - like custom-fit soft luggage -- which extends the Daytona's range as a long-distance, real-world sports bike with touring legs.

The MSRP for the 2004 Daytona 955i is $ 9,999.
