The irony of a British bike manufacturer naming one of their bikes "America" isn’t lost on us, but what isn’t ironic is the fact that the Triumph America is one bad-ass machine.
As the bike that offers the most accessible entry point into Triumph’s cruiser range, the America delivers an authentic cruising experience with a distinctive Triumph twist attached. In terms of its design, the America’s was styled as a classic laid-back cruiser, with the 16" front and 15" rear cast alloy wheels sporting high-walled tires to complement the deeply valanced front fender, pulled-back handlebars, and feet-forward controls for a traditional low and laid-back cruiser look. The seat height is 27.1" and, together with a weight of just 550 pounds, the America is a fun ride wherever and whenever. With neat touches such as the easily accessible sidestand and friendly ergonomics, it’s no wonder the America attracts such a wide variety of riders searching for a cool-looking yet fun and easy-to-ride motorcycle.
As far as power is concerned, the Triumph America is powered by an 865cc air-cooled DOHC parallel-twin engine with a 270º firing interval and producing an output of 60 brake horsepower at 6,800 rpm and a maximum torque of 53 lb/ft of torque at 3,300 rpm.

So if you haven’t already made a deposit for the Speedmaster , the America can blink an eye at you as it is more comfortable without losing any of the British magic look.
The America is just made for the open road. It feels planted and rides easy. For 2007 the jet-black, parallel twin motor has been cranked up to 865cc to give the bike more torque. And more torque means fewer gear changes - just what is needed for relaxed cruising.
The America is your passport to freedom. At its heart is a handsome 790cc, air-cooled, twin-cylinder engine that delivers smooth easy-going power and a rhythmic, laid-back soundtrack with every twist of throttle. Wide pull back bars, low 28-inch seat height, forward-set ’highway’ style foot controls and powerful disc brakes further reduce effort while adding to the America experience.
