2010 Triumph America

A distinctive look with laid back charm.

With its classic cruiser styling and laid-back power delivery, the America delivers an authentic cruising experience in a package that’s pure Triumph.

Sit back in the low seat, grab the pulled back handlebars, and thumb the starter button. The traditional British 865cc air cooled parallel twin bursts into life with a satisfying burble thanks to its 270 º firing order. Settle into the feet-forward riding position and enjoy a motorcycle that has been designed for comfort and easy riding.

Ensuring the classic cruiser look, the America comes covered with chrome and classy custom touches. Shrouded front forks with polished lowers, chromed single headlamp and chromed engine covers, machined cast wheels, chromed detailing and twin reverse cone pipes are touches that make the America stand out from the pack.

Available in sparkling Phantom Black or a pair of two-tone options, the 2010 Triumph America is your passport to the open road.



 

 

Features and Benefits

Engine

The America’s 865cc, air-cooled, DOHC, twin cylinder engine shares its basic architecture with the Bonnie, but the 270º firing angle provides a loping exhaust note and smooth power delivery that’s big on easy-going drive and full of character.


Fueling

The America has a fuel injection system to meet Euro 3 legislation. Cleaner running than a carburetor 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 carburetors.


Fuel Tank

The America’s seamless, teardrop-shaped tank holds more fuel as well as looking great with its chromed badges and hand painted pin stripes.


Chassis

Riders from every experience level will appreciate the sure-footed ability of the chassis and the confidence-inspiring handling. The riding position is relaxed for both rider and passenger and offers a supremely comfortable ride, thanks to the large, low seat, forward set pegs and pulled-back handlebars.


Wheels

The cast, aluminum alloy 15 inch rear rim is crowned with a fat, 170/80-section rear tire. While the front, an 18 inch cast wheel, wears a 110/90 tire. 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 cone exhaust pipes.
