Triumph America / Speedmaster Launch
2011 Triumph Video
Triumph continues to build entry-level cruisers with style, and the 2011 Speedmaster and America are no exception.
This YouTube video showcases these Triumph motorcycles at a launch in Australia.
Heavily updated for 2011, the 865cc Triumph America motorcycle offers an accessible entry point into the Triumph cruiser range, delivering an authentic cruising experience but with a distinctive Triumph twist.
The Triumph America has been completely restyled has taken on a more classic theme for 2011, with the 16" front and 15" rear cast alloy wheels sporting high walled tires to complement the deeply valenced front mudguard, pulled back handlebars and feet forward controls for a traditional low and laid back cruiser look.
Low means a 690mm seat height and an easy to manage 250kg (551 lbs.) wet weight, fully fueled and ready to ride.
The Triumph classic parallel-twin power plant provides a unique proposition in a sea of me-too V-twins. This quintessentially British configuration sets the America apart from the competition and delivers a unique motorcycle look and riding experience.
With a 270-degree firing order, the America 865cc engine delivers a healthy 60hp with a mellow soundtrack and connected feeling. And the air-cooled engine is totally modern too, with fuel injection for clean running and low maintenance.
The new for 2011 Triumph Speedmaster motorcycle features a host of updates to deliver an improved riding experience and an even more aggressive appearance.
The stripped down sports cruiser now features a new 19" cast aluminum front wheel with single disc brake and skinny tire for the classic chopped hot rod look and a whole host of other updates to give the Triumph Speedmaster more attitude and improved accessibility.
At the heart of the Speedmaster is the classic Triumph 865cc parallel twin engine, a legacy configuration also favored by some custom motorcycle builders around the world.
To complete the back to basics street rod look, the 2011 Speedmaster sports blacked out engine cases, a carefully crafted teardrop tank, minimalist mudguards, a 15′ cast rear wheel with high profile tire and a new front headlight design.
