1999 Triumph T955i Daytona
Registration no. T150 ARP
Frame no. SMT502FK1WJ058892
Engine no. 059046
Triumph's first attempt at a cutting edge superbike, the T595 Daytona arrived at the start of 1997 and was an immediate success, despite being pitched against Honda's FireBlade and Ducati's 916. In a nod to the old Triumph company's heritage and drawing on the Hinckley firm's more recent experience, the new Daytona was a triple. Displacing 955cc, the fuel-injected 12-valve engine produced around 105-110bhp at the rear wheel, matching the FireBlade while having a character all of its own. The Daytona's looks were something special too, combining voluptuous curves with a Spondon-like aluminium frame, single-sided swingarm and three-spoke alloy wheels. Top speed was around 160mph. In 1999 the model was mildly updated and renamed, becoming the '955i'. This T955i was purchased by the current owner in October 2010 and was last taxed in 2013. Last serviced in June 2012 (see invoice for £914.12 on file), it has covered a believed-genuine 14,870 miles from new and is described as in generally good condition. Additional accompanying paperwork consists of three expired MoTs, the 2010 purchase receipt, V5C registration document and current MoT.
