MPS777's review of Triumph Daytona 1200

“Been looking for A Daytona 12 for years”

★★★★★

written by MPS777 on 03/07/2022

Passed on my 3rd ZZR1100 with a view to kind of ' move on' from biking. This Triumph Daytona 1200 suddenly appeared, a red one. There was no finger waggling over the buy it button, no hesitancy or think about it process.. Just buy it which I did, no haggling.. Looked better in reality than the pics. There nothing else that looks like it, the paint is thick and deep, build quality is awesome, just looking at the kick plates says it all, and the engine finish is superb,and the seat cowl finishes the lines off perfectly.
Firing it up I was aware the engine sound is a tad unrefined, minor issue, because up to now there is nothing else, except maybe warms up quickly in town. Quick off the mark, nice tall 1st gear and pulls all the way exactly like a ZZR1100. I have heard people talk a little about being top heavy, doesn't bother me and is easily a better handling bike at speed than it should be, surprisingly nimble and flickable. The brakes are superb, nice pressure on the lever, responsive to gentle one or two finger pressure. Remarkably comfortable too, I am 6ft and it has a perfect reach to the bars which are slightly wider than a ZZR, which I like.If you see one of these and you are looking for one, and it is looked after, don't hesitate, it's a brilliant bike in all areas, you will not be disappointed. They can only go up in value now, mine cost me 2200..!?!?...
