(Please correct me if I'm wrong here..)



The "Gentlemans" agreement between the big 4, Triumph, Ducati, etc is 300Kph or 186 MPH. This came about when the European Union started to rattle the sabre saying they'll ban sportbikes off of public roads. This really came to a boil with Triumph was looking to introduce there new Daytona 1300. It was suppose to be a Hayabusa killer with a top speed of over 210 MPH! From the spy photos the bike looked like a bigger Daytona 650. After this agreement Triumph stuffed the bike back into the crate and shoved it onto a shelf. To be honest I personally would love to see it back. I've always had a soft spot for Triumph. With gas prices going up ($5 a gallon by next year I bet) I'm looking at a Sprint, Tiger or Ducati ST3 (add another Duc to my stable). :)
