When Triumph debuted the T595 in 1997, the model laid the groundwork for one of the British marque’s most iconic motorcycles: the Daytona. What’s more, the bike allowed the Triumph to find a niche — the inline triple — after its rebirth at the Cologne Motor Show in 1990.

After some lack-luster reviews, however, Triumph decided it was time to go back to the drawing board. Accordingly, they revised the platform to make it lighter, more powerful, and quicker handling. What resulted was the second generation 955i.

As the name suggested, the 955i was built around a 955cc three-cylinder engine. Co-developed by Lotus, the block featured a 12-valve DOHC configuration, forged aluminum pistons, CNC-machined heads, and liquid cooling. When paired to a six-speed close-ratio gearbox, it was good for 128hp and 60lb-ft of torque at the rear wheel — enough grunt to spirit riders to a top speed of 161mph.

Around the engine, Triumph wrapped twin-spar aluminum frame and a single-sided swingarm for predictable flex and rigidity. To keep the platform planted, it boasted a set of 43mm forks up front and a rear monoshock with adjustable preload and rebound damping. Stopping power came from Nissin in the form of a a pair 320mm discs brakes mated to 4-piston calipers. As Cycle World put in its period review: “the Daytona’s revisions add up to a machine that meets the criteria that Triumph had in mind for its flagship sportbike: a more powerful, agile and comfortable Daytona that retains the original’s unique character. This is one alternative sportbike that doesn’t force you to compromise performance for that character.”
