It is only fitting that the flagship model of Triumph's modern success story should receive the centenary treatment too. The power-packed Centennial Edition Daytona keeps the 2002 engine and chassis modifications but reverts to a single-sided swing-arm for this special edition.  A colour-matched seat cowl and carbon fibre side panels and cockpit infills set-off the sensational one-off Aston Green paint scheme. A special milestone centenary badge completes the look.


A Triumph Daytona 955i Special Edition with the same specifications, was also available in 2002, and came in Tornado Red.


The 955i CE features

- 200 examples made.
- One colour option of Aston (British Racing) Green, which was offered only on the 2002 955i Centennial Edition.
- Carbon fiber inlaid panels between the gas tank and tail fairing.
- Carbon fiber rear wheel hugger.
- Single-sided swing arm (like the previous and later Daytona 955i).
- Forged steel crankshaft, forged steel connecting rods, and forged aluminum pistons; non-CE/SE 955i engines had cast versions of these components. These engine components are the most distinctive CE/SE-specific options, and increased the maximum power output significantly compared to the cast-component engines.
