Description

Bike is located in Portland, Oregon, I can help with delivery to the Bay area. I just acquired this bike about a month ago and immediately had a change in circumstances and I can't keep it now.
This bike was originally owned by an older rider who collected all of the Hinckley versions of the Daytona. This is the Centennial Edition which was only made in 2002. It was only available in the dark Aston (aka, British Racing) green which is absolutely beautiful. It also came with carbon fiber infill panels between the tank and fairing and below the seat. Unlike the other 2002 models, this one kept the single sided swing arm.
I got the bike with less than 4K miles and rode it home (1,000 miles) and now the miles are nearly 5,300. The bike is beautiful and runs and rides as good as it looks. The engine is fantastic and probably my favorite power plant of all the bikes I have owned (and I have had more than a few of them). Great power throughout the revs. Nice low-end torque but it revs nicely and has an amazing sound. It will not make the crazy top end power of a modern in line 4 sport bike but it is actually easier to ride on public roads (in my opinion) because the engine is so manageable and powerful at less than redline revs. Also, unlike a v-twin, it doesn't feel real lumpy at low revs like when you are poking along in traffic. It reminds me most of a VFR engine but with much more power. Riding position is sporting - like an older Honda CBR1000 - nothing like a Ducati or MV or more recent Japanese liter sport bikes.
The bodywork is in excellent condition - some very minor signs of wear if you look real close but nothing significant. I had a dealer look it over when I got home and it has a new voltage regulator and rectifier in it now. It had a new battery and new tires when I got it. Oil has about 1,000 miles on it. It is a 50 state bike so California should not be a problem even though it has less than 7.5K miles on it.
This bike comes with a Ti high pipe and has been remapped for it. It does not come with the pillion seat or the pillion foot pegs - I never got them. It will come with a service manual (paper) and three keys.
