If ya axe me (of course, no one did), it has a hint o' 675 to it, especially from this angle. 1050 Triple vs 1098 Twin? Hmm... will Triumph PLEASE make a Daytona with a 1050 motor to shut these people up?

A big daytona will come I just don't think its going to have the 1050 motor as we know it.
The Duc is hot and priced right for a Ducati at $15K
Because our 1050s are "tuned for torque." Triumph designed the engine to make lots of power at low rpms, but that means it's not as efficient (powerful) at high rpms.On 2006-11-15 11:59, jrussell6 wrote:
why can't triumph match cc's to hp, ??? our's seems to be the only liter bikes that only get 130 hp?

Curmudgeon is right. Look at the Daytona 955's hp compared to the S3. Much higher. It's all in how it's tuned.On 2006-11-15 11:59, jrussell6 wrote:
i really like it, it looks like they took a note from the s3 gas tank, with that cutout knee area. likey likey,, i think this is my next bike, but quite frankly,, i hope they don't do a 1050 daytona,, because it would still only get 130 hp, and the stock 1098 makes 160. why can't triumph match cc's to hp, ??? our's seems to be the only liter bikes that only get 130 hp?
Curmudgeon, the Italians haven't forgotten, I think that the other manufacturers are just catching up to them in design.Either I'm getting too old to appreciate current styling trends or the Italians have forgotten how to make beautiful motorcycles. It looks something like the 675 . . . just a little more discombobulated.

$15K? No way. I'd bet base price is 17 to 20K.
