After seeing this for the first time, it looked like a 2001 955i painted a special color.

As it turns out, it's the new 2002 body and engine, but with the single-sided swingarm that Daytona fans are up in arms about Trimph leaving behind. Seems like a little bit of the best of both worlds.

Plus, the green is cool!

I do like the green (though not as much as the blue or silver), but I actually prefer the looks of the flat black dual-sided, traditional style swing-arm. It just looks like a more serious, focused sportbike with the new piece. Plus, it has performance advantages-- it weighs seven pounds less, reduces wheelbase by half an inch, and it is significantly more rigid.

But, at any rate, it's still a 2002 Triumph Daytona 955i, and therefore, an incredibly awesome motorcycle. I have my two Kawasakis now, just give me a lil time with the big Trumpet...
