General information about the Triumph America

Built to be ridden, not just to look good. The America’s 865cc parallel-twin puts out a healthy 61PS with strong torque at low revs, peaking at 72Nm at just 3300rpm. Ideal for urban cruising at low revs but with enough muscle for serious long distances at motorway speeds, even with a passenger or luggage on board.

This vertical twin is a true original. Drawing on Triumph heritage from fifties and sixties parallel twins and coupling that with modern technology and build standards, the engine in the America has a laid-back riding character that’s unique to the cruiser world.
