In the early 90s, most major motorcycle manufacturers entered a gentlemen’s agreement to cap horsepower at 125. Triumph decided that when they were going to bring the bikes back from the new plant in Hinckley, that the best way for them to get attention was to ignore said agreement: enter the 147 horsepower Triumph Daytona 1200. A year after the bike went out of production, Triumph brought back the 1200 for a limited Special Edition run of just 250.
All the Special Edition bikes were adorned in a beautiful black and gold livery. It also came with individually numbered plates on the headstock and 6-piston caliper brakes from the Daytona Super III.
This example (VIN: SMT371CA7XJ071219) is #157 of the 250 Special Editions, and i thas just 7,770 miles. The seller says that it was recently given a full service with a carb rebuild, intake boots, air filter, throttle cable, petcock, spark plugs, and battery.
