Description

Freedom and individuality.





The Triumph America mixes classic British engineering with style straight from the US highways, with wide bars, forward set pegs and relaxed, parallel twin power. Freedom and individuality define the essence of cruising and the America encapsulates both. The simple addition of genuine Triumph accessories designed specifically for the America, such as luggage options or chrome parts, allows you to mark out your personal identity. As the open road beckons, the America is just waiting to be ridden providing an enjoyable passport to two-wheeled freedom.





Engine: The America's 865cc, air-cooled, DOHC, twin cylinder engine shares its basic architecture with the Bonnie, but the 270º firing angle provides a loping exhaust note and smooth power delivery that's big on easy-going drive and full of character.





Fueling: CVK36 Keihin Carburettors with throttle position sensor and float bowl heaters.





Fuel Tank: The America's new seamless, teardrop-shaped tank holds more fuel as well as looking great with its chromed badges and hand painted coach lines.





Chassis: Both new and experienced riders will appreciate the sure-footed ability of the chassis and the confidence-inspiring handling. The riding position is relaxed for both rider and passenger and offers a supremely comfortable ride, thanks to the large, low 28 inch seat, forward set pegs and raked handlebars.





Wheels: The cast, aluminum alloy 15 inch rear rim is crowned with a fat, 170/80-section rear tire while the front, an 18 inch cast wheel, wears a 110/90 tire. Durable, wide-set telescopic forks add substance and a solid look to the America's raked front end, while twin-piston calipers and front and rear disc brakes take care of stopping duties.





Exhaust System: The America's engine fires out through a pair of deep-chrome reverse silencers.
