The new Daytona's styling is incredibly disappointing from my point of

view. One of the many reasons to ride a Triumph is that the look is modern,

retro, smooth and quirky all rolled into one. The new styling says "I am

going Japanese". The new headlight setup is a way too familiar a copy of

current Yamaha's and Kaw's, while the new "stern" looks exactly like a boat

built by Suzuki. Gone are the smooth yet aggressive "ovoid" lines of the

previous T5. So sad. The new mechanical specs will of course bring the

Daytona closer to its main "super bike" competitors, but since few real

world riders ever approach using any of these bikes at their razor edge, the

now bland and cobbled together "every plastic bike" styling will be the

first thing people judge this new bike by.
