Whatever the journey and wherever your destination, the relaxed, chilled-out elegance of Triumph’s Bonneville-based cruiser motorcycles give you all the excuse you need to go for a ride, any time, anywhere. Triumph Speedmaster - Long, low, blacked-out and mean, the hot-rod cool Speedmaster rocks the streets. Triumph America - The heart and soul of British engineering reinvented with a splash of Stateside style. Triumph America LT - The classic heritage tourer adds a laid-back, high chrome cruiser style vibe to Triumph’s signature dynamic ride.
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.
Raked-out, shallow angle forks and sturdy twin rear shocks don’t just look the part; they’re high quality KYB 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.
Slide into an arm-chair riding position with a low seat, feet forward on the pegs (footboards on the America LT), hands wide apart on low, easy-reach bars. These are classic cruiser ergonomics, easy at low speed and comfortable when the pace increases so you can always enjoy the ride.
The Speedmaster, America and America LT use a traditional, high-strength tubular steel cradle frame and steel swingarm, integrating the air-cooled Bonneville-based engine as part of the design so it looks the part, but also delivers stable, sure-footed handling.
Whether you want to uprate and personalise the performance, sound, feel, style or comfort of your bike, Triumph have the answer. From auxiliary lamps to boost night-riding and daytime visibility, to a glossy chrome-plated cam cover for extra style, to high-flow chrome silencers for enhanced performance and a richer exhaust note, to genuine leather panniers with generous, go-anywhere capacity – you can add whatever parts you need to make your bike complete for you.
This bike isn’t just built to look a certain way, it’s built to feel a certain way.
The America is engineered around a unique engine so you get a truly authentic ride. One that connects you to Triumph’s long and rich cruiser heritage.
We’re talking about its distinctive, air-cooled parallel-twin that gives you the riding experience you expect from this class but with a very individual British flavour.
Taking classic cruiser appeal and blending it with Triumph reliability and everyday practicality.
