famous triple !!!
new Daytona has arrived, and
the Hinckley factory kept the 3
cylinders engine for its 2001 model.
Why? Try one and you will
Its behaviour and sound is simply
magic, I have tried many engine configurations and all had their
own charater, but the best for sensations is definitly the triple.
It pulls cleanly from 3000 rpm, strongly in a beautiful growl
up to 8000 rpm, then it kicks you all the way to the red line,
loosing power progessively as the injection system delays the
timing, gently when hitting the rev limiter, (it doesn't feel
like ur hitting a "wall" like on the other bikes)
Made by Sagem in France, the MC2000 is up to this day, the most
advanced FI system available on a motorcycle. The multipoint sequential
injection will help you start the bike, affect fuel mix automatically
according to battery charge, altitude, and even air filter condition!
3 millions operations/second can be achieved thanks to his 16 bits Siemens
It's memory will keep track of Injection malfunctions (sensors etc...)
and will tell your dealer where the problem is exactly, using a coding
The sensors and injectors are made by Lucas, and the coils integrated
to the spark plugs (Nippondenso). The spark loss is nil, and the ignition
quality is constant whatever the revs. This is impossible to achieve
with a standard
CDI unit. The system being very easy on plugs, you can achieve 40000
kms before replacing the plugs!
The system will calculate the parameters given by the 6 sensors according
to a mapping (or "tune") which can be updated from ur dealer
on a regular basis!!
Many more features are available like the easy system to reset the throttle
position, or the autosurveillance of the wiring loom, but a full website
would be needed here.

bodies with the 3 Lucas injectors fitted :
face it. This engine will not make the Daytona keep up in top speed
with bikes powered by an inline 4 cylinders of the same displacement,
but it was not designed for that.
This motor will be "fuller" than an inline 4, from low rev
to mid rev, hence giving plenty of torque to pull your arms on every
Torque. This is the purpose of this thing, and if you like the feeling
of a bike powering you through corners in a very distinctive growl,
then give it a go. After having tried V-twins, singles and inline fours,
I found which engine configuration's for me, and I still need to try
a bike which will make me change my mind about it. I'll have a triple
cooled inline DOHC TRIPLE
