Unveiled at the Cologne Show in the autumn of 1990, the born-again Triumph range consisted of three- and four-cylinder models named after iconic models of the past: Daytona, Trophy, and Trident. The most sporting of these were the Daytonas, which by 1993 had been rationalised as the three-cylinder 900 and four-cylinder 1200 models. Introduced in 1994, the limited-edition Super III was Triumph's attempt to elevate the Daytona's performance to a point where it could challenge the Japanese opposition. Cosworth were recruited to provide the required power increase, raising maximum output to 118bhp (up from 98). A liberal application of carbon fibre knocked a couple of pounds off the weight, while the Super III's six-piston 'brick wall' brakes received copious praise. Now, a quarter of a century later, these early Hinckley Triumphs are becoming increasingly collectible, and none more so than the limited-edition Super III. This example was purchased new by the vendor from Bridge Motorcycle World in Exeter. Regularly serviced and MoT'd, kept in a heated garage and only ridden in dry weather, the Daytona has covered only some 17,500 miles from new and comes with a complete file of history (inspection recommended) and its original tools, keys, and handbook. Presented in excellent original condition throughout, it represents a wonderful opportunity to own one of these rare limited-edition Super IIIs
