Well, the 955i gets a revamp.

The new Triumph Daytona appears to be reaching performance compared to the Japanese bikes. It looks even better this year too, looks like they might actually become a wide spread competitor in the sportbike market again.

I like it, but I liked the single sided swingarm better!

No sir don't like it... They stripped all the soul out of it. Now they are talking next year about abandoning the triple... Their goes all the character the Daytona once had... First the looks then the heart.

Bastards ruined a perfectly good bike... Second only to the 996 in sheer sex appeal.

No more.....

BTW, I saw one in person at the NYC show and the ducts on the lower fairing are only asthectic. They are not ram air ducts.

I have to say that comparing the new bike and the old side-by-side, I prefer the old. Of course, it was silver and that single-sided swingarm has something to do with it...
