2009 Triumph America

With distinctive cruiser styling and design, the America not only has the looks, but delivers exactly what the rider wants in more ways than one.

Shrouded front forks with polished lowers, chromed single headlamp and chromed engine covers, machined cast wheels, chromed detailing and twin reverse cone pipes are all evidence of the attention to detail that makes sure the America stands out wherever it goes.

Sit back, put your feet up and settle into a riding position that’s built for comfort. Take hold of the pulled back bars and listen to our traditional British air-cooled 865cc parallel twin emit an even gruntier, off beat sound that’s even more unique and distinctive, thanks to the 270º crank. Twist the throttle and feel the effortless torquey performance that ensures every journey on an America is a ride to remember.


Features & Benefits

Engine
With distinctive cruiser styling and design, the America not only has the looks, but delivers exactly what the rider wants in more ways than one.

Shrouded front forks with polished lowers, chromed single headlamp and chromed engine covers, machined cast wheels, chromed detailing and twin reverse cone pipes are all evidence of the attention to detail that makes sure the America stands out wherever it goes.

Sit back, put your feet up and settle into a riding position that’s built for comfort. Take hold of the pulled back bars and listen to our traditional British air-cooled 865cc parallel twin emit an even gruntier, off beat sound that’s even more unique and distinctive, thanks to the 270º crank. Twist the throttle and feel the effortless torquey performance that ensures every journey on an America is a ride to remember.


Fuelling
The America has a fuel injection system to meet forthcoming Euro 3 legislation. Cleaner running than a carburettor engine, the fuel injected engine is also easier to fire up from a cold start and runs more smoothly when cold. The cool retro styling remains uncompromised though, as the fuel injectors are cleverly concealed by throttle bodies designed to look like carburettors.


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 pillion and offers a supremely comfortable ride, thanks to the large, low 28 inch seat, forward set pegs and raked handlebars.


Wheels
The cast, aluminium alloy 15 inch rear rim is crowned with a fat, 170/80-section rear tyre while the front, an 18 inch cast wheel, wears a 110/90 tyre. 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.
