2012 Triumph America

The cruiser for those who go their own way.

It’s got the low seat. It’s got the classic chromed up cruiser style. It’s got the sound, but the Triumph America offers a unique alternative among the sea of wannabe clones. Traditional British parallel-twin. Lightest in class. Great to ride. Grabs attention wherever it goes.

America’s distinctive 865cc parallel-twin offers a laid back riding experience to match the classic minimalist cruiser look.

The America’s new ergonomics puts the rider lower and closer to the controls, for a fuss free riding experience. At 250kg ready to go and a low 690mm seat height, the America is one of the lightest bikes and easiest bikes to ride in its class.

The chassis for the America has also been updated with new wheels and tires for improved handling and aesthetics.

  • 865cc Engine
  • Air-cooled, DOHC, parallel-twin, 270-degree firing interval 865cc Triumph engine delivers 61PS (60bhp) and peak torque 72Nm at 3300rpm.

  • Chassis
  • Low and lean. Confidence inspiring for new riders, with more than enough character to satisfied experienced cruisers.

  • Styling
  • Traditional cruiser styling with a twist. Small rims with beefy high wall tires ooze cruise, while the trademark Triumph parallel-twin stands proud at the heart of the America.

  • Accesories
  • Individualise your America further with a wide range of genuine Triumph accessories, including quick detach screens, sissy bar and leather panniers.
