I see more Sprints of the vintage. I've only seen one other '97 T595, mine is a '98. I do see them regularly on eBay though. I'd wager a lot more Speeds were sold during the same period of production of the Daytona. I would agree that they are rare here, or at least where I ride. I found it odd when I would pull into a Triumph dealership that the bike would hardly get a look by the staff.
I love the fact that you dont see many of em ! The reason why you dont see more of them I think is that the 2 wheeled press never gave them good reviews, which turned out to be a selling point for me, well the triple was also, had a Sprint RS prior to the Daytona and knew I wanted another one. With a few tweeks here and there its an awesome bike! I couldnt part with it!
Yea, I haven't seen any other then mine and that other one. People don't know what it is and ask me about it all the time. I can understand them being hard to sell. People are all about reviews and bandwagoning.
