It’s got the low seat. It’s got the classic chromed up cruiser style. It’s got the sound, but the Triumph America offers a unique alternative among the sea of wannabe clones.

Traditional British parallel-twin. Lightest in class. Great to ride. Grabs attention wherever it goes.

Classic cruiser styling and laid-back power delivery, the America delivers an authentic cruising experience.

Sit back in the low seat, grab the pulled back handlebars and thumb that starter button. The traditional British 865cc air cooled parallel twin bursts into life with a satisfying burble thanks to its 270 degree firing order.

For the classic cruiser look, the America comes with shrouded front forks with polished lowers, chromed single headlamp and chromed engine covers, machined cast wheels, chromed detailing and twin reverse cone pipes.

Triumph America
Heaviliy updated for 2011, the 865cc Triumph America offers an even more accessible entry point into Triumph's cruiser range, delivering an authentic cruising experience but with a distinctive Triumph twist.

The America's completely new styling has taken on a more classic theme for 2011, with the 16 in front and 15 in rear cast alloy wheels sporting high walled tyres to complement the deeply valenced front mudguard, pulled back handlebars and feet forward controls for a traditional low and laid back cruiser look. For 2011 the rider has also been placed even closer to the controls, creating greater harmony between rider and machine and making the 2011 Triumph America even easier to ride.

Low means a 690mm seat height and an easy to manage 250kg wet weight, fully fuelled and ready to ride. Triumph's engineers have deliberately designed the 2011 America to appeal to a wide range of riders. In addition to the low seat and light weight, neat touches such as the easily accessible sidestand and friendly ergonomics mean that it's no wonder the America appeals to a wide variety of riders looking for a cool looking yet fun and easy to ride motorcycle.

Metallic Phantom Black or two-tone Eclipse Blue with Crystal White paint schemes give the America a timeless appeal and understated style. Liberal lashings of high quality chrome further enhance the America's appeal and help deliver a beautifully balanced design.

And the twist? Triumph's classic parallel-twin power plant provides a unique proposition in a sea of 'eme too' V-twins. This quintessentially British configuration sets the America apart from the competition and delivers a unique look and riding experience.

With a 270-degree firing order, the America delivers a healthy 61PS with a mellow soundtrack and connected feeling. And the air-cooled engine is totally modern too, with fuel injection for clean running and low maintenance.

A full range of genuine Triumph accessories are available for the America and include items such as quick release screens and sissy bars, panniers, a low seat option and a number of leather and chrome items for riders who want to cosmetically tune their cruiser.
