1997 - 1998

An attempt to compete with Japanese reigning superbi...




 

1995 - 1996

The 1996 MY Triumph Daytona 900 Super III is the first attempt the "reborn" British engineers have made to try and compete with the Japanese giants in the superbike category, although rather limited by Triumph's "modular concept", which means it has the same innards and skeleton as the other 900cc Triumph models, like the Thunderbird, Trophy or the Tiger. Still, the Brit...

Although it's been one year since the Triumph rose from its ashes, already the Triumphs have made a name for themselves by being much more dependable and durable, compared to its competition, and, because of this they do not depreciate much over time. With a strong 998cc powerplant, the Daytona 1000 is no except...




 

1992 - 1993

The 1992 MY Triumph Daytona 750 is a sporty, middleweight bike, with British styling and engineering written all over it.
