2006 Triumph America on 2040-motos
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.

I headed up the M1 this week to the Triumph Factory in Hinckley. The Speed Triple was due its 12000 mile major service and the workshop also had some new shiny bits to add to the bike for me. Service intervals are every 6000 miles which is more than bearable but the major service will cost you around £450.Tue, 02 Jun 2009
According to the “King of Cool” himself, “The Fonz” (Henry Winkler) never actually rode any motorcycles during the ten year Happy Days television run. Winkler, never rode a bike in real life either, he has dyslexia, which made it difficult for him to co-ordinate the clutch, throttle and brake. Instead, the bikes (Harley Davidson’s, Triumph’s, BSA’s were used) were mounted on a piece of wood with wheels to make it look like he was riding, even though I am not shocked, I am a little disappointed… You can watch the interview with Winkler, the famous motorcycle jump “The Fonz” made over 14 trashcans and a bonus “Jump the Shark” video after the jump.

AMA Hall of Fame member Craig Vetter will be the featured guest at its annual AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Breakfast at Daytona, on Friday, March 14, at 7:00 a.m., at the Daytona 500 Club on the infield at Daytona International Speedway. “Craig Vetter’s impact is far-reaching, starting with the design of the iconic Windjammer fairings of the 1970s, continuing with motorcycle designs like the Triumph X-75 Hurricane and the limited-edition ‘Mystery Ship,’ and enduring more recently with a resurrected series of motorcycle fuel economy runs that push the boundaries of everyday streamlining,” said Jeff Heininger, chairman of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, which oversees the Hall of Fame. “We’re proud to host motorcycling’s design professor emeritus for this year’s Breakfast at Daytona.” Taking place during 2014 Daytona Bike Week, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Breakfast at Daytona fundraiser will feature a live interview with Vetter on stage, an audience Q&A period and an autograph session with Vetter and other Hall of Famers in attendance. The event is open to the public, and tickets are available now at www.motorcyclemuseum.org.
