Performance is intrinsic to the Daytona 955iís appeal. Its fuel-injected, three-cylinder engine packs a heavyweight 147bhp punch, which the benchmark chassis - that includes aluminium frame, fully adjustable suspension and powerful four-piston front brake calipers - intuitively contains.

At the Daytonaís heart beats a highly-evolved, fuel-injected 955cc three-cylinder engine that provides a heady peak power output of 147 hp, with a great spread of power throughout the rev-range. Peak torque of 100Nm is delivered at 8,200rpm and instant drive in any of the Daytonaís six gears is the reward of the three-cylinder engine layout.

Sleek lines add real class and a touch of íGTí style to the Daytona 955iís multi-faceted persona, while its sophisticated ergonomics make for all day riding comfort. Beautifully blending raucous, triple-cylinder brawn with scalpel-like handling ability, the Daytona 955i is an intoxicating mix. Itís the light with the shade, the rough with the smooth, the sugar and the spice. Itís all of these things, and more.

The Daytona 955i is a unique propostion. It matches power to control and serves up a hugely satisfying riding experience in the process. Now thatís what you call balance.

It's rude to stare; though with the 2004 Daytona's chiseled good looks, forgivable.

Sporting a sleeker, more aerodynamic top fairing, shapely mirrors, color-coded air intakes and a svelte new seat cowl, the Daytona 955i is as handsome as ever. Its beauty is much more than skin deep though and under the sharp new exterior beats a highly refined, fuel-injected, three-cylinder heart.

There's no mistaking the lusty sound of a triple and the Daytona delivers a heady peak power output of 147bhp (149PS). We've long perfected the balance between power and usability though and you'll find a great spread throughout the rev range, giving instant drive in any of the six gears. Peak torque is 100Nm (74ft.lbf) at 8,200 rpm.

The Daytona's chassis, likewise, provides the perfect blend of stability and responsiveness. As with all our sports bikes, both front and rear suspension are fully adjustable to tailor the 955i to suit the road conditions and payload and of course your own riding style. Braking is taken care of by twin floating discs on the front and a single disc rear.

Three sophisticated color schemes - Jet Black, Tornado Red and Racing Yellow - paired with understated graphics compliment the Daytona's unique looks. And for 2004 a special edition Daytona, with Jet Black paintwork and a textured black finish on the frame, wheels and swingarm, will also be available.

Features

- New cylinder head and crankcases with revised cooling hose routing for a visually tidier engine
- Backlash eliminator gear for reduced noise and vibration
- Revised gear change internals
- Revised swingarm
- New Scorched Yellow colour option

Stunning all-round superbike performance coupled with an 'intercontinental-blast' ability is intrinsic to the Daytona 955i's appeal.

The Daytona 955i has proved, over the years and miles, that balance is everything. With large amounts of horsepower comes the need for finesse. And while achieving true balance for a sports machine is no easy task, the Daytona 955i excels because it's been designed, from its inception, as a real world performance motorcycle. It provides exactly the right blend of sporting ability matched to practicality and, while supremely fast, it's also extremely well mannered, nimble and agile yet roomy and comfortable.

At the Daytona's heart beats a highly-evolved, fuel-injected 955cc three-cylinder engine that provides a heady peak power output of 149PS, with a great spread of power throughout the rev-range. Peak torque of 100Nm is delivered at 8,200rpm and instant drive in any of the Daytona's six gears is the reward of the three-cylinder engine layout.

The Daytona's chassis, likewise, provides the perfect blend of stability and responsiveness. The aluminium frame is massively strong as are the fully adjustable 45mm telescopic forks. Also fully adjustable is the rear monoshock, which suspends the elegant single-sided swingarm. As befits such a powerful machine tyre sizes are 120/70 ZR17 front and 190/50 ZR17 rear, making use of the very best sports rubber. Twin four-piston calipers stop the front wheel via 320mm floating discs and a single twin-piston caliper grips the rear 220mm disc. Braking performance, as you'd expect, is phenomenal.

Colour options are Scorched Yellow or Jet Black. A range of Triumph accessories to further sharpen the Daytona's focus are available, including a high-level oval carbon can and re-mapped fuelling for the EFI (for circuit use only). Other items - such as soft luggage - extend the Daytona's range as a long-distance real-world sports bike.

Sleek lines add real class to the Daytona 955i's multi-faceted persona and it remains the intelligent superbike choice, offering as it does a unique riding experience and, in terms of ownership, major satisfaction and enjoyment.
