Is something wrong here?

Hey everyone, I've been a lurker for quite some time now and I have a question but not sure who to ask. I Currently ride an 08 cbr1000rr, but I'm finally going to give Triumph a shot. I found a 2009 white Daytona 675 but it has a blue subframe with a black frame. Ive searched around some and haven't found any of these particular models that come like this. the owner says he purchased the bike at an auction as it. He also says there are no indications that the bike has been worked on or that the frame was swapped. Would this be a safe purchase?

Heres the link to the add

Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

Most likely id say the bike was a wrecked SE, and the replacement parts are from a regular daytona.

That being said, if everything is running right then it shouldnt be a problem.

That being said, the guy apparently doesnt know much about the bike so id be very skeptic about any info he gives.

Triumph offered a 2010 Special Edition Daytona 675 with Pearl White paint scheme on the bodywork and a Blue frame and swingarm.[9] Unlike the standard version, the Special Edition did not include the updated 2010 instrument cluster.


That's what I can offer

So the bike got in a wreck that didn't damage the swingarm, subframe, or fairings but it needed a new frame?

I'd say this is a wrecked standard model with parts from an SE.

No indication that it's been worked on though? lol

Do you have the VIN#? If so give Triumph USA and find out what they know about the bike. They can at least give you a description the OEM colors.

I don't know if you can track the bikes history similar to CarFax, but start with the VIN #.

Probably broke the steering stop on the old frame. That could happen with very minimal damage. I would take a close look at the vin and title as a start. Look at the steering stop and try to find scratches in weird places

This crossed my mind, maybe it was flipped and original subframe was destroyed then previous owner just replaced the subframe and fairing with SE parts huh?

They guy said everything was nice and clean on the bike though, he did mention that the could possibly be powder coated but he wasn't sure..
