The 1999 Triumph Sprint RS is powered by a revised version of the Daytona engine.

It now comes with steel cylinder liners, as opposed to the coated aluminium ones of the Daytona. The pistons have also been upgraded to match the cylinders, while the new camshafts have new lift and timing for more midrange nerve.

And of course, the ECU was reprogrammed to match all the changes the 1999 Sprint RS received. A sport bike by nature, and endowed with track-ready the Sprint RS can also serve as a good daily ride with tons of fun and excitement about it.
