Updated for 2011, Personally, I like the 2010 model and style better, but that's personal choice. the 865cc Triumph America offers an even more accessible entry point into Triumph's cruiser range, delivering an authentic cruising experience but with a distinctive Triumph twist. Easy handling and maneuvering as usual.
The America's completely new styling has taken on a more classic theme for 2011, with the front and rear cast alloy wheels sporting high walled tires to complement the front mudguard, pulled back handlebars (Not my preference)and feet forward controls for a traditional low and laid back cruiser look. For 2011 the rider has also been placed even closer to the controls, creating ergonomic harmony between rider and machine and making the 2011 Triumph America even easier to ride.
Low means a 690mm seat height and an easy to manage 250kg wet weight, with fuel and ready to ride. Triumph's engineers have deliberately designed the 2011 America to appeal to a wide range of riders. The America ill appeal to a wide variety of riders looking for a cool looking yet fun and easy to ride motorcycle. (Even your girl friend can handle this bike easily)
Metallic Phantom Black or two-tone Eclipse Blue with Crystal White paint schemes give the America a timeless appeal and understated style. Liberal lashings of high quality chrome further enhance the America's appeal and help deliver a beautifully balanced design.
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 environmentally 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.
But while this is a pleasant ride..don't kid yourself none..it ain't no HOG...!
