Triumph America

Changes for 2006:

  • Classic new Graphite paint option with a Silver infill
  • With its wide bars, forward-set pegs and relaxed, parallel twin power the America mixes classic British engineering with style from the highways of the USA.

    Based around the iconic Bonneville the America builds on a fantastic package. The basic architecture of the America's 790cc, twin-cylinder engine is as the Bonnie but a 270 firing interval - rather than 360 - gives a loping exhaust note and mellow power delivery that's big on easy-going drive and heavy with character.

    Spinning a fat, 170/80-section rear tyre (crowning a meatily-spoked 15-inch rim) through a five-speed gearbox the engine fires its heartbeat out through a pair of deep-chrome slash-cut mufflers. Heavy duty, wide-set telescopic forks add substance and a solid look to the America's raked front end, as does the 18in front wheel, shod with its 110/80 tyre. Disc brakes matched to twin-piston calipers take care of the stopping duties.

    The America's a great place to embark upon a motorcycling career, but as a true cruising motorcycle it's also built to cover ground. Its relaxed riding position, with forward set 'highway' pegs, wide raked-back handlebars and low 28-inch seat height aids rider comfort and control, also makes the America extremely manageable in all situations - especially for riders with limited experience. Even those with many miles under their belts, however will be impressed with the chassis' surefooted ability and confidence-inspiring handling.

    The America's also been made to be admired and from its slab-style top yoke to chromed shock absorbers it's the very essence of cruiser chic - but with something a little different; a sense of style and heritage very much its own. This bike simply isn't like the clone-like mass of everyday cruisers. Centrally mounted above the teardrop-shaped 16.6 litre fuel tank is a deep-chromed instrument console matching classic-style Triumph tank badges. A white-faced, chrome-bezelled speedo sits rakishly above the single headlight and with a nod to the past the pillion footrest hangers echo the lines of the trademark toolboxes of pre-war Triumphs.

    Two-tone paintwork, with hand-applied coach lines tops the America with a choice of Graphite with Silver infill and Mulberry Red with Graphite infill. For those preferring simplicity, a stylish single-tone Jet Black option is also available.

    Cruising is all about the essence of freedom and individuality and the America provides both. It's also ready to further personalise, from the simple addition of luggage and screens to extra chrome work. There are also entire custom-painted body kits to mark out a personal identity.

    The need to explore lies deep within the human soul, as more and more people are recognising today. The open road beckons, waiting to be ridden and the America is a relaxed and enjoyable passport to two-wheeled freedom.
