Triumph followed up its first Supersport 600-class contender – the TT600 – with the Daytona, reviving an illustrious name from the brand's recent past. Introduced in 2002, the Daytona deployed what was basically the four-cylinder engine of its predecessor in an entirely new chassis, not that there had been anything wrong with the old one. The same could not be said of the TT600's engine however, and its characteristically uneven power delivery continued to bedevil the Daytona; the answer, as usual, was to fit a Power Commander. Its chassis and suspension though, were as good as anything from Japan and the Triumph possessed the added advantage of being generously proportioned and commensurately more comfortable than the opposition. On the racetrack, the Japanese makes continued to hold sway, the Daytona's only noteworthy achievement being Bruce Anstey's victory riding a V&M-tuned example in the 2003 Isle of Man TT 'Junior 600' race. In 2005 Triumph copied Kawasaki (which was offering an alternative 636cc version of its ZX6-R) and upped the Daytona's capacity to 650cc. The Daytona 650 though, would be only a stop-gap model pending the arrival of the three-cylinder Daytona 675, which set new standards for the class on its debut in 2006 and is still in production today.

Nothing is known about the origin and history of this 'racerised' Daytona, which is offered without documents. Noteworthy features include a Nitron rear shock, K-Tech forks, R&G crash protection and a Renthal rear sprocket. The rear-wheel paddock stand is included in the sale. No reserve.
