Out on the streets your bike speaks volumes. It has to look just right; authentic, cool and classy. That’s why it’s easy to see Triumph’s classic cruisers, powered by the instantly recognisable Bonneville parallel twin motor, are the real deal. So relax, and let your Triumph do the talking.ENGINE
It looks the part, sounds right, feels great and delivers the goods. That’s because the Bonneville-based, air-cooled 865cc parallel twin is the real deal.
With instant, fuss-free throttle response and great traction across the rev range, the 865cc parallel twin pumps out a full-blooded 72Nm of torque at a mere 3300rpm and peak power of 61PS at 6800rpm for a perfect balance of driving low-down and midrange performance.
Packed with plenty of thumping good vibrations, the Bonneville-based parallel twin air-cooled engine design incorporates a 270° crankshaft with added balancer shafts to deliver a smooth, pulsating drive for a natural, responsive feeling.
A deeply distinctive exhaust note matches the motor’s relaxed drive, and is delivered through characteristic splayed header pipes exiting into either the twin, tapered cones of the America and America LT, or through the Speedmaster’s slash-cut silencers.Chassis
Raked-out, shallow angle forks and sturdy twin rear shocks don’t just look the part; they’re high quality Kayaba units with plenty of spring travel to soak up the worst bumps the roads can throw at them, always delivering a smooth, controlled ride whether you’re riding solo, with a passenger and/or luggage.
Low-slung, laid-back and long, the Speedmaster, America and America LT feature carefully tuned frame geometry and a manageable, balanced chassis for an intuitive riding feel and neutral steering. This means all riders on any tarmac can revel in Triumph’s safe, secure road holding.
Matching form and function, the America and America LT use cast aluminium 12-spoke wheels for heritage looks, while the Speedmaster opts for larger, 5-spoke cast aluminium wheels with a hot-rod vibe. The America and America LT also run chunky, deep sidewall tyres for classic cruiser style.
