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.
Out on the streets your bike speaks volumes. It has to look just right; authentic, cool and classy. That’s why it’s easy to see Triumph’s classic cruisers, powered by the instantly recognisable Bonneville parallel twin motor, are the real deal. So relax, and let your Triumph do the talking.
With instant, fuss-free throttle response and great traction across the rev range, the 865cc parallel twin pumps out a full-blooded 72Nm of torque at a mere 3300rpm and peak power of 61PS at 6800rpm for a perfect balance of driving low-down and midrange performance.
Packed with plenty of thumping good vibrations, the Bonneville-based parallel twin air-cooled engine design incorporates a 270° crankshaft with added balancer shafts to deliver a smooth, pulsating drive for a natural, responsive feeling.
A deeply distinctive exhaust note matches the motor’s relaxed drive, and is delivered through characteristic splayed header pipes exiting into either the twin, tapered cones of the America or through the Speedmaster’s slash-cut silencers.
Raked-out, shallow angle forks and sturdy twin rear shocks don’t just look the part; they’re high quality Kayaba units with plenty of spring travel to soak up the worst bumps the roads can throw at them, always delivering a smooth, controlled ride whether you’re riding solo, with a passenger and/or luggage.
Low-slung, laid-back and long, the Speedmaster and America feature carefully tuned frame geometry and a manageable, balanced chassis for an intuitive riding feel and neutral steering. This means all riders on any tarmac can revel in Triumph’s safe, secure road holding.
Matching form and function, the America has cast aluminium 12-spoke wheels for heritage looks, while the Speedmaster opts for larger, 5-spoke cast aluminium wheels with a hot-rod vibe. The America also run’s chunky, deep sidewall tyres for classic cruiser style.
