Our Review

Reviewed: by Visordown
Now having only seen the new 955i in photos, I’ve not been entirely struck with it, but lined up in the Estoril pitlane, early-morning sun glinting off their panels, I have to say they looked alright, especially in the blue. And as the day went on, they grew on me. ...  Continue reading

Comparing the Daytona with a modern sports bike it shows it's age, however this is a real road sports bike, not a track master and can be realistically used to back road scratch and trans Europe blasting, you c Continue reading...
I've not owned any other big bikes, so can't compare it directly.
The only significant modifications to factory standard are a pair of Dunlop Sportsmart tyres, a beowulf can and pipercross air-filter. The nois Continue reading...
In the real world if you need to go quicker than a Daytona will go you should be in the track, not the road. It is a bit slow steering but handles well, goes like stink in a charging rhino sort of way and keeps Continue reading...

I wanted it cos it was a Triumph, but I suspect theres a few better Jap sportsbikes out there. I enjoy riding it but I know when i'm finished with it I'll just ride it into the ground and scrap it as it retains Continue reading...
My 02 centennial edition has a healthy 40k miles on it and came with full triumph service history. I did get it cheap from a trader when I virtually swapped my T509 SpeedTriple for it. I loved my S3 but with Continue reading...



Just been to the manx on mine and it ran nicely thanks, it dealt with the rain (and there was a lot!) and the miles and returned decent fuel economy - no idea what as the speedo sensor has gone and no idea of the mileage.

Only issues I've had are the speedo pickup which I think is common, and the wires behind the fairing on the rhs are exposed to the elements and one corroded and broke. In all fairness the bike has done 37K and I chucked it over a roundabout (my Fault).

I've had an issue with weight on the wrists due to my height and the way I sit, on the way back from the Manx I got right behind the tank so my elbows were on my thighs and the steering lightened up, so I think I'm over the bars too much and its screwing up the steering and making my wrists suffer. To stop my elbows sitting on my thighs I'm going to move the bars forward ( standard position is crap for anyone over 6" anyway) and the fact I have the longest arms in the world doesn't help!

The engine is noisy but it had no effect on reliability, its just a wet liner engine and they're all loud! But I put semi synth in just cos I had it and wanted to change the oil for the journey, but I'm going to change back to full synth and I'd like to use a 15W-40 if I can find any to stop the cold clatter.

 All in all its been good to me so far, without many issues that weren't self inflicted.

Got on this this summer and it just feels old with 40K up!

If you want a Triumph they make better bikes, if you want a cheap sportsbike buy a Suzuki!
