The smooth running fuel injected system ensures the America is up to speed with Euro 3 emissions legislation. The engine fires out through a pair of deep chrome reverse silencers, spinning the cast 15 inch rear wheel crowned with a fat, 170/80 section rear tyre through a five-speed gearbox. The polished telescopic forks add substance and a solid look to the America's raked front end, enhanced by the 18 inch cast front wheel with its 110/90 tyre. The twin piston calipers and front and rear disc brakes take care of stopping duties.
The America is a true cruising bike built to cover ground and is a great place to start a motor-cycling career. 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 comfortable ride, thanks to the large seat with a low 28 inch height, forward set pegs and raked handlebars.
The America is made to be admired with its slab style top yoke and chromed shock absorbers giving it the very essence of cruiser chic. But the America also offers a sense of its own style and heritage that allows it to stand out from the rest of the clone-like cruiser market. Above the redesigned teardrop shaped 19.3 litre fuel tank sits a deep chromed instrument console and matching classic style Triumph tank badges. An update for 2009 is the addition of colour coded side panels.
The addition of genuine Triumph accessories designed specifically for the America, such as luggage options or chrome parts, allows the rider to further personalise their bike to suit their own personal riding style.
