Daytona Vs Daytona


Is your Daytona old ?

Since Triumph launched its new model the 16th of February, T595 and 955i owners will not look at their pride and joy in the same way.
As u probably read in the
latest news section, there is a meaner Daytona in town now.
This page will be updated regularly, to try to gauge the old Daytona versus the new one.
As for now, no one's test-ridden the new bike, so no Dynamic comparaisons can be made, but as far as looks go, everyone can offer his/her opinion.
The following are the main changes from the previous models:

Key Features - Engine

Increased power output of 149PS (147bhp) at 10,700rpm
New cylinder head with revised valves and narrower included angle
Ports and combustion chamber are CNC machined for greater consistency
New pistons and conrods; higher 12:1 compression ratio
Revised fuel-injection system with lambda sensor for constant optimisation
Uprated cooling and lubrication systems
High pressure die-cast (HPDC) crankcases for improved consistency
Direct drive to alternator/starter motor reduces noise
Improved gearshift action

Key Features - Chassis

Restyled, lighter bodywork with new, more powerful twin headlamp unit
Dry weight reduced by 10kg to 188kg
Tubular aluminium frame retained but with steeper steering geometry
Shorter wheelbase and narrower, 180/55 rear tyre further improve agility
New twin-sided aluminium swing-arm contributes 3.3kg to weight loss
Lightweight 17-inch front wheel for easier steering
Revised handlebar position and reshaped, larger fuel tank
New digital instrument console
