2008 Triumph America

Freedom and individuality.

The Triumph America mixes classic British engineering with style straight from the US highways, with wide bars, forward set pegs and relaxed, parallel twin power. Freedom and individuality define the essence of cruising and the America encapsulates both. The simple addition of genuine Triumph accessories designed specifically for the America, such as luggage options or chrome parts, allows you to mark out your personal identity. As the open road beckons, the America is just waiting to be ridden providing an enjoyable passport to two-wheeled freedom.

The Cruiser Range – Performance and looks – no compromise. Triumph cruisers deliver performance with a balance that revels in every sweeping curve. Powered by torquey twin and triple engines that feel and sound like no other. Individual bikes for riders with an individual spirit – covered in chrome and infused with Triumph’s original and authentic styling, they are ready for you to customize with Genuine Triumph Accessories.

FEATURES:

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
CVK36 Keihin Carburettors with throttle position sensor and float bowl heaters.

Fuel Tank
The America’s new seamless, teardrop-shaped tank holds more fuel as well as looking great with its chromed badges and hand painted coach lines.

Chassis
Both new and experienced riders 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 28 inch seat, forward set pegs and raked 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 silencers.
