2013 Triumph America
America. The cruiser for those who go their own way.
Classic cruiser styling and laid-back power delivery, the America delivers an authentic cruising experience.
Sit back in the low seat, grab the pulled back handlebars and thumb that starter button. The traditional British 865cc air cooled parallel twin bursts into life with a satisfying burble thanks to its 270 degree firing order.
For the classic cruiser look, the America comes with shrouded front forks with polished lowers, chromed single headlamp and chromed engine covers, machined cast wheels, chromed detailing and twin reverse cone pipes.
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.
