I didn't care to mention or look for these as I thought they didn't have any weight in a discussion about the future of the motorcycle industry :)
Yes Kawasaki had 2-stroke inline triplets in the 70s.

If Triumph has the engine, and the frames for the Daytona and ST3 have been the same along with just about everything else on the bike, it wouldn't make sense to not make a Daytona. The only real difference (historically) are the headlight design, rear subframe components, and some fairings. It couldn't possibly be prohibitively expensive to produce those....I think.

The sooner you introduce motorcycles into your children's lives, the less likely they'll have money for drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as teenagers.

Anyone know how many daytonas are sold last year? in US?
Number of units sold affects a company's decision as to building and supplying more to dealers that may not want to stock them

Just razzin ya.

My insurance (full coverage) on the Striple is less than on our Ninja300 or SV650S! The word "Ninja" makes the insurance actuaries crap.

Very cool. Revives some hope that we'll see a Daytona version of the 765 engine.
