2000 Triumph Daytona Deal Of The Day

If someone said they had a motorcycle with a single sided swingarm, fuel injection, 955cc and a unique engine configuration, what would come to mind?  Probably not Triumph, and that is a shame because the late 90s and early 00s Daytona was a really good bike.  Sure it did not have the exotic nature of the Ducati, or the peak power of the Japanese four cylinders but it did have a very usable performance package for the road.  Most in period reviews heaped praise on the Daytona for how fast and usable the performance was on the road.  This bike was for owners that knew that there was more to a motorcycle then just lap times.  These people were being honest about how the machine was going to be used, and were it was going to spend time.  130hp from the three cylinder engine was plenty to put a smile on anyone’s face, as was the fully adjustable suspension.

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

2000 Triumph Daytona 955i
Very low mileage! Everything on the bike, mechanical/electronically, works fine.
Full Akrapovič Exhaust, Corbin leather seat, and carbon front tank cover added.
Battery replaced and oil/filter changed just this month. Title in hand. No trades. Ready to ride!

The end of season deals just keep rolling in.  $3500 is an absolute bargain for a clean Daytona 955.  This example has a full exhaust that is sure to sound amazing.  Miles are sitting at just under 15k so no fears about using this bike as intended.   One could have a wonderfully unique bike in their garage without worrying about depreciation at all.  There is a robust owners club so servicing and maintenance should not be an issue at all.

Motorcycle Art: 2013 MV Agusta F4 RR

Motorcycles are many thing to many people.  Some view them purely as a form of transportation, while others reserve the riding experience for special occasions.  A select few treat them as objects of desire.  Something almost mythical in terms of appeal and performance, something that is a true piece of art.  MV Agusta adopted the phrase Motorcycle Art as part of their marketing years ago, but it really was a fitting label.  The bikes had the specifications to take on almost anything else on the market, but they had the added Italian flair and undeniably beautiful styling.  For 2013 the F4 came in three flavors, the F4, the F4 R and the F4 RR, each and upgrade on the pervious.  The F4 RR used the 998cc “short stroke” four cylinder engine.  It cranked out 201hp and could rev to 14,000 RPM.   Seen more as a rival to the BMW S1000RR then any of the Ducati offerings in period.

The F4 RR commanded a $7,500 premium over the base F4.  For that money you got variable length intakes, titanium connecting rods, forged wheels, electronically adjusted steering damper and a host of other top tier components.  This flagship model was meant to showcase what MV Agusta could do with a road bike.

From the Seller’s eBay Listing:

MV Agusta F4RR

Original owner, purchased from unique super bikes in Miami.

Serviced at Ducati Charlotte.

Everything is factory. Rare bike, I haven’t seen another for sale here on eBay or cycle trader in over a year. This is the RR model, not the R or base.

No reserve auction. Payment due within 3 days. Wire transfer or cash. Title in hand.

Opening bid of $12,999 has yet to be made on this no reserve auction.  At roughly half the original MSRP the timing might be right to add this bike to your garage.  Details are limited, but it is always appealing to purchase a motorcycle from the original owner.  A touch over 6k miles shows that the bike has been used over the years and one can assume most, if not all, of the typical Italian quirks have been worked out.  While an MV Agusta is never going to give the worry free ownership experience of the Japanese brands, it does offer an interesting alternative to a Ducati.
