While I will admit the early Triumphs were not known for their reliability, I've spend a good amount of time on triumph675.net (about '13-'17 Daytona 675) forum and don't remember ever hearing about oil consumption or any other big issues. I will say that Triumph did a big change in their oil/water pumps for models prior to 2011...

I even talked with guys that track their Daytona's really hard and none complained about big issues (2013+). The early stuff?...well...  :173:

I had a '96 Trident and a '95 Daytona and perhaps soon a '95 Super3. AFAIK they are lightly modified/derived from the GPZ/ZG1000 and while they weight a ton, have been very reliable. I never cared much for the 98+ bikes till this most recent 13+ generation.
Good suspension doesn't have to be expensive.

It's rumored that Kawasaki designed the triple I had in my '02 Daytona. And probably the years surrounding it.
A pro mechanic friend of mine was replacing a crank shaft in one. If you had a weak battery, the starter mechanism wouldn't fully engage when you thumbed the starter button and it would knock the starter gear off the end of the crank shaft. Brilliant.
