In 1997 Triumph introduced the T595 Daytona in an attempt to corner the sports bike market. With its alloy frame, good weight distribution, 955cc fuel injected in-line three cylinder engine and four-piston caliper braking system, it fast became Triumph’s best selling motorcycle, offering stability, safety and speed. Production of the Daytona progressed until 2006.
It would be truthful to say that this fine example has been cherished by its late owner. The Daytona appears to be in excellent condition; as a favourite ‘toy’, it was only ever used sparingly since 2002, and the machine certainly must have been well-looked after by its two previous owners.
The Triumph is supplied with a history file containing invoices, the owner’s handbook, alarm details, the V5C registration certificate and numerous MOT test certificates (the most recent expired 13 August of this year).
