    I don't think there was ever a 'T955'. T595 Daytona, yes, but the Tnnn
    designations and the capacity were never related, IYSWIM.
    Whatever. I thought they looked pretty good, as it happens, but I've
    never understood why people are so bothered about form over function.

    Nah, in true plucky underdog style, Triumph would release a litre bike
    with less horsepower than the Japanese (and now German) opposition,
    but rely on patriotism to sell it.

    How true

    From the T595/R1 on.

    349 known cases, last one last month on an 08 model
    there are some pictures - the new version is black powder coated, the one
    that fails is bare metal (for a while until it oxydizes)

    IIRC, there was a "ring antennae" fault on 08 models too. Should be sorted
    by now on a recall. It's the aerial that picks up the signal from the coded
    key. I was in France with a rider who had his pack up on the way to our
    hotel in Metz. fortunately for him , we were on the way home so he got a
    flight back to the UK via BMW Assist as they could not source the scarce
    part.

    She had the earlier 595 then 'upgraded' to the Daytona and hated it.
    The Daytona is a totally different bike to ride and she went from
    being pretty confident on the 595 to having next to no confidence at
    all on the Daytona.

    I think she'll confirm that she was so fed up with bikes that she
    didn't enjoy riding them anymore until she rode the 9R and then buying
    the R1 got her back to being confident on bikes and actually wanting
    to go on holiday on one again.

    The T595 was the model number and was a Daytona.

    The next model was a 955i Daytona. it was later updated but kept the
    same designation.

    I had the first and last. As Andy has said, loved the first, hated the
    last.

    Not as quick as the original R1 or 996 but only just off the pace, the
    engine feels and sounds fantastic and the brakes/handling are spot on. Low
    mileage ones are around for £1800ish which is great value.
