Spaniards say a tasty big-bore Triumph's on the way
Although it's still just rumour, the Spanish say that the bike will be over 1100cc and will feature new, CBR-gappy type fairings, a tiny seat unit and tucked-up tiny exhaust.
Interesting take on the superbike idea though, especially as Triumph are seriously missing a decent, competitive superbike from its range.

MCN reported testing of a large capacity Daytona recently.
Lets be honest, it's hardly rocket science is it? The one thing Triumph is missing is a decent large capacity sports bike. Anyone can guess that a new bike will have a similarity with the Daytona 675, which means a small seat, and a larger engine, which will have to have a larger capacity to the Speed Triple, which immediately puts it at 'over 1100', which would put it on a par with jap 1000s. If it can be done as a triple without being top heavy.

I hope they build an 1100 daytona, i would seriously consider parting with some moola if it is any good
allways wanted a british bike, but the 675 although it does it looks mighty fine, is not enough to lure me away engine wise from what i have allready
go on Triumph lest see ya do it

It'll be JUST ONE MORE sodding sports bike....... bum in the air, nose in the clocks......blah de blah de blah........ I can't wait to see the new Thunderbird 1600 parallel twin, now THAT is a bike worth waiting for. I may even be prepared to lash out a few of my hard earned sovs on one if it's as good as the pictures I've seen.

The T-bird's lovely mate, if cruisers are your thing. The one at the NEC was very H-D, only with ocean deep paint and chrome that might get past your garage door without rusting into oblivion. I'd love to hear one...
I still want a Daytona 11 in my shed though!
