I bought this in July last year having owned a TT600 before that. I saw it in the showroom, gleaming in it's red coat and wanted it...wanted it badly. So what is it like? Well it is not a Japanese litre eater, but that wasn't really what appealed to me. The tubular frame, the single sided swing arm, and the truly British quality of looking distinctive. And the ride? Well the TT600 had a fantastic chassis (and the engine on mine was well sorted), but the instant I got onto the Daytona, I felt comfortable and confident, initial euphoria only marred slightly by the rigid running in proceedure. Once I had passed the magic 1000 miles, I finally opened it up...and WOW! Strong pull in all gears with a smooth power delivery, and no sign of any electronic ignition glitches. Heavier to flick than the TT, but satisfying nonetheless. Total ease and confidence on cornering, and quite able to pull away from lighter and more responsive 600's. Add a race can and I am more than well pleased!!! Strengths: Looks, individuality, performance, sound and total fullfillment! Weaknesses: Poor headlights! Brakes get spongy quickly and need bleeding regularly.
