Triumph has updated its popular cruiser for the 2011 model year. The America got new, more classic styling and a wide range of accessories which allow customers to create an individual look. The engineers pulled the handlebars back, and the seat height is now only 690mm which creates a greater harmony between rider and machine. The more classic America with its redesigned front mudguard weighs 551lbs fully fueled and ready to ride.
The 865cc fuel-injected two-cylinder delivers a healthy 61hp at 6,800rpm and provides for a low maintenance. A full range of genuine Triumph accessories are available for the America and include items such as quick release screens and sissy bars, panniers, a low seat option and a number of leather and chrome items for riders who want to cosmetically tune their cruiser. “Triumph’s engineers have deliberately designed the 2011 America to appeal to a wide range of riders. In addition to the low seat and light weight, neat touches such as the easily accessible sidestand and friendly ergonomics mean that it’s no wonder the America appeals to a wide variety of riders looking for a cool looking yet fun and easy to ride motorcycle,” the manufacturer says.
