For much of the 1950s and 1960s, Harley-Davidson dominated the Daytona 200-mile motorcycle race. Then, in 1966, a Triumph motorcycle won, and the Triumph Daytona 500 was born. The inspiration for the motorcycle's name was from the race itself as were many of the components on the bike. It had a production run that lasted from 1967 until 1974, when it sometimes went by the name Triumph Tiger 100 Daytona or T100T. It has an air-cooled parallel twin engine with a four-speed manual transmission. This produces 41 brake horsepower and gets the Triumph Daytona 500 up to a maximum speed of 105 mph. It has a classic 1960s and 1970s British motorcycle style with a long bench seat, straight chrome pipes, and foot pegs positioned below the knees. It also handles well, which is why Triumph kept racing with it. Triumph won the 1967 Daytona 200 race with its new bike plus many other races. Used models are available.
