Post Sale Update: This Centennial Edition Triumph sold for $2,700 after 8 bids on eBay.
Triumph goofed up when they introduced their take on the sports literbike market in 1997. As their new triple was dubbed the “T5” and the motor displaced 955cc, the British manufacturer decided to blend the two names to come up with a model name of the Daytona T595. You can probably guess how this ended up – consumers thought this meant the motor displaced 595cc. It took a couple of years but in 1999, they finally changed the name to Daytona 955i. In 2001, the bike underwent a serious redesign, and one year later Triumph celebrated their 100th Anniversary with “Centennial Edition” runs of the Bonneville and the Daytona.
I haven’t been able to find official production numbers but Motorcycle Specs says that 200 Centennial Daytonas were built. All of the bikes were adorned in Aston Green with carbon fiber filler panels and a special centennial badge. They also got a single sided swing arm like earlier models of the 955i.
For some reason, the seller only shows the right side of this bike (VIN: SMT502FP12J148856), so I’d definitely be asking of photos that show all of the bodywork before placing a bid. It has 36,471 miles and looks like it’s done far less than that. You’ll be the third owner, and the sale includes all mainetnance records, 2 keys, a bike cover, track stand, and some riding gear.
