Triumph Other description

2006 Triumph America, Only 1,724 miles and one owner. - Great mid-weight cruiser that handles and looks fantastic. Equipped with Triumph Saddle bags. Only 1,724 miles from one previous owner. With its wide bars, forward-set pegs and relaxed, parallel twin power the America mixes classic British engineering with style from the highways of the USA. Based around the iconic Bonneville the America builds on a fantastic package. The basic architecture of the America’s 790 cc, twin-cylinder engine is as the Bonnie but a 270 degree firing interval – rather than 360 degrees – gives a loping exhaust note and mellow power delivery that’s big on easy-going drive and heavy with character. Spinning a fat, 170/80-section rear tire (crowning a well-spoked 15-inch rim) through a five-speed gearbox the engine fires its heartbeat out through a pair of deep-chrome slash-cut mufflers. Heavy duty, wide-set telescopic forks add substance and a solid look to the America’s raked front end, as does the 18-inch front wheel, shod with its 110/80 tire. Disc brakes matched to twin-piston calipers take care of the stopping duties. The America’s a great place to embark upon a motorcycling career, but as a true cruising motorcycle it’s also built to cover ground. Its relaxed riding position, with forward set ‘highway’ pegs, wide raked-back handlebars and low 28-inch seat height aids rider comfort and control, also makes the America extremely manageable in all situations – especially for riders with limited experience. Even those with many miles under their belts, however will be impressed with the chassis’ surefooted ability and confidence-inspiring handling. The America’s also been made to be admired and from its slab-style top clamp to chromed shock absorbers it’s the very essence of cruiser chic – but with something a little different; a sense of style and heritage very much its own. This bike simply isn’t like the clone-like mass of everyday cruisers. Centrally mounted above the teardrop-shaped 4.4-gallon fuel tank is a deep-chromed instrument console matching classic style Triumph tank badges. A white-faced, chrome-bezelled speedometer sits rakishly above the single headlight and with a nod to the past the passenger footrest hangers echo the lines of the trademark toolboxes of pre-war Triumphs. Two-tone paintwork, with hand-applied coach lines tops the America with a choice of Graphite with Silver infill and Mulberry Red with Graphite infill. For those preferring simplicity, a stylish single-tone Jet Black option is also available. Cruising is all about the essence of freedom and individuality and the America provides both. It’s also ready to further personalize, from the simple addition of luggage and screens to extra chrome work.
