I didn't realize that the Daytona 1200 was a four. Good info.
My buddy paid $6k for his 900, with 6.5k miles, pristine condition. He's got over 10k on it now, with no problems. I'm not sure if his sprockets are OEM, but the gearing seems a bit tall, with the power coming on in the mid to upper rev range. It's heavy by today's standards, but the weight is pretty well distributed. On comfort, the seat is a bit narrow, but he has Graves custom clip-ons mounted above the triple clamp, so the reach for me (6'1") is pretty comfortable. It feels rock solid on the road, and wind protection from the wide-flaring fairings is really good; I've had it up to an indicated 140, and it felt like I was going a lot slower than that compared to my VFR. I Twin Yoshi pipes make it sound sweet, too. The bike gets a lot of looks from bystanders, and the most oft said comment is "I didn't know Triumph made a sportbike."
Well, there's my $.02.
Good luck, Nash.
