2015 Triumph America Review

2015 Triumph America on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

To the onlooker, Triumph Cruiser bikes could be mistaken for being just about pure classic cruiser style…

But one ride tells you that they are about surprising levels of agility and performance in a bike that can deliver an engaging ride every day. They just happen to do it with that pure classic cruiser style.

This bike isn’t just built to look a certain way, it’s built to feel a certain way.

The America is engineered around a unique engine so you get a truly authentic ride. One that connects you to Triumph’s long and rich cruiser heritage.

We’re talking about its distinctive, air-cooled parallel-twin that gives you the riding experience you expect from this class but with a very individual British flavour.

Taking classic cruiser appeal and blending it with Triumph reliability and everyday practicality.

2015 Triumph America www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Styling
THE LOOK

Pure cruiser with a British twist. With its eye-catching chromed and polished instruments, headlight bowl, shrouded front forks, twin rear shocks and engine covers. From the moment you see the America, and every second you ride, it feels every bit as authentic as it looks.
ENGINE

We have drawn from our heritage and set our unique British 865cc vertical twin at the heart of the long, low and sleek frame. Proud and upright, it not only looks the part, it breathes through carefully shaped, deep chrome exhausts to create a noise that connects you to the ride.

 

Engine
Performance

Built to be ridden, not just to look good. The America’s 865cc parallel-twin puts out a healthy 61PS with strong torque at low revs, peaking at 72Nm at just 3300rpm. Ideal for urban cruising at low revs but with enough muscle for serious long distances at motorway speeds, even with a passenger or luggage on board.

This vertical twin is a true original. Drawing on our heritage from fifties and sixties parallel twins and coupling that with modern technology and build standards, the engine in the America has a laid-back riding character that’s unique to the cruiser world.
Configuration

Straight away people notice the America’s unmistakably British style. Its pair of cylinders stand upright and proud and make a powerful statement. And, being air-cooled there’s no radiator to spoil the view.
Feel

An engine like this is about more than just the numbers. It’s about the way it feels.

It responds to the throttle obediently, allowing you to accelerate confidently. And we’ve carefully modulated its vibration levels to allow you to connect with the ride without it becoming intrusive on long trips. Then there’s the off-beat 270-degree firing interval and mellow soundtrack that gives substance to the America’s cruiser styling for a bike that sounds, looks and, above all, feels amazing.

 

Chassis
Suspension

With forks raked out at a shallow angle and feature polished shrouding and silver legs that match the chrome springs and covers of the laid-down, twin rear shocks. The America’s suspension works hard to provide laid-back comfort and road feedback in true cruiser style.
Handling

Long, low and stable like a cruiser should be.

Everything about the America’s chassis is focussed on balance and we’ve matched each component carefully to maintain that steady, intuitive feel.

As a result, it’s agile enough for an exciting ride when the road gets interesting and is more capable through the corners than most of its rivals.

It’s so well-balanced that it is ideal for inexperienced riders as well as a satisfying cruise for those with a lot of miles behind them.
Brakes

Never too sharp or intimidating, braking is looked after by single discs front and rear to provide plenty of stopping force, whilst maintaining the overall balance of the chassis so every moment of your ride is confident and controlled.
Wheels and Tyres

The cast aluminium wheels are small in diameter. 16 and 15 inches front and rear and fitted with chunky, deep sidewall tyres for a classic cruiser look and a more comfortable cushioned ride.
Seat Height

A seat height of just 690mm makes the America easy to control when gliding through traffic or parking. In fact, the set-up suits many riders that find other bikes too tall. Whatever your height though, easy positioning of the bars, seat and footrests means you’ll quickly find your most relaxed and comfortable cruising posture.
Riding Position

As a pure unadulterated cruiser, your riding position should be upright, laid back and spacious. But never at the expense of comfort and sheer riding pleasure. So the America’s bars hang high and wide but are also pulled back so that the controls are closer to you. And we’ve set the footrests far enough forward for comfort, without being too much of a stretch. Putting you in firm, confident control of your bike during busy urban riding or long-distance travel.
