11-2-18 Update: This Super III is back up for sale with a lowered BIN to $5,250
Post Listing Update: This Daytona did not get any interest at the BIN of $6,250.
This is one of the pricier Super IIIs I’ve seen, though that may because it’s in great shape, it’s got low mileage, and it comes with some rare extras. Is that worth the premium for you? Let’s start with what makes this bike special – in the early 1990s, famed engine experts Cosworth assisted Triumph in their quest to build a faster version of the Daytona 900. It was a rare bird, as just 805 examples of the “Super III” were sold, 179 of which made it to the United States.
Cosworth’s primary contribution was a new method of pressure sandcasting for the engine cases. In addition to Cosworth’s touch, this bike got bigger cams, flat slide carbs, 6 piston front brakes, and a whole lot of carbon fiber. The results of the engine work yielded a healthy 115 horsepower, though the bike was too heavy to be a true sports bike. It instead ended up being a fantastic sport-tourer, and a bike you had to muscle around to have a lot of fun with.
This example (VIN: 9175368377) has 8,779 miles and it’s got all OEM parts except for some halogen bulbs in the headlights. The forks were recently serviced and the tires have less than 1,000 miles on them. While the bike looks to be quite clean with only a couple of scratches that the seller points out, what makes this listing special is that the seller will include a rare Sprint Fox fairing, custom carbon fiber fill pieces, Sudco FCR 39mm carbs, and a few spare parts.
