The Triumph four cylinder supersports are their own thing entirely. They are great bikes that were an eyelash less than the most potent 600s of their time, and because Triumph was an upstart in the 600 class at the time, they didn't get the market love they deserved. They are a well kept secret, and if you know what they are, you know how good they are. If you don't, well, that's another issue. Point being that the are unique bikes and should be enjoyed for what they are - early to mid 2000s supersports that were within a fraction of being the fastest bikes of their kind.

Good point well put, out on the road mine can keep up with the current crop of 600's.

If the OP wants to know just how good the Daytona 600 was in it's day then google "2003 junior tt winner" the 650 got a beefed up mid range but the extra 50cc excluded it from 600 class racing

I just did the RaceTech gold valve kit on my D600. Amazing change, well worth it. Totally changes the way the bike brakes, turns in and handles.
