2002 Triumph Daytona Sneak Peek
Thanks to readers RS-Mike and SilverSurfer for providing some technical tidbits.
Triumph has decided to dump the previous model's single sided swingarm in the interest of lighter weight and strength. Also gone is the old model's distinctive face, replaced by an RC51 inspired look, sans the prominent incoming air duct."
RS-Mike:"According to a press release on February 22nd they have revised the Daytona 955i to become more competitive without sacrificing the `Triumph-character'. Thus they will still use a 955cc triple with lots of low and midrange torque. The improvements are more power (147 bhp), more torque 74 (ft/lbs), a sharper steering geometry and a stiffer, lighter double-sided swingarm. They have also changed the design but kept a `Euro-look'."
