- 2012 Triumph America Review

2012 Triumph America

The cruiser for those who go their own way.

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.

America’s distinctive 865cc parallel-twin offers a laid back riding experience to match the classic minimalist cruiser look.

The 2011 America’s new ergonomics puts the rider lower and closer to the controls, for a fuss free riding experience. At 250kg ready to go and a low 690mm seat height, the 2011 America is one of the lightest bikes and easiest bikes to ride in its class.
The chassis for the new America has also been updated with new wheels and tyres for improved handling and aesthetics.

TRIUMPH AMERICA

- Traditionally British 865cc parallel-twin powerplant
- Classic cruiser styling
- Wide range of official accessories available to create an individual look
- Standard two-year unlimited mileage warranty

The 865cc Triumph America offers the most accessible entry point into Triumph’s cruiser range, delivering an authentic cruising experience but with a distinctive Triumph twist to set it apart from the masses of ‘me too’ V-twin cruiser clones.

The America’s styling is pure classic laid back cruiser, with the 16” front and 15” 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.

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 America to appeal to a wide range of riders. 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 Caribbean Blue with Crystal White paint schemes give the America a timeless appeal and understated style, while 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 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.
