2011 Triumph America | Quick Look

2011 Triumph Motorcycle

Triumph has upgraded the America for 2011, giving it a new look to go with the unique sound produced by the 270-degree firing parallel twin.

Displacing a relatively small 850cc, the 60 horsepower engine has plenty of grunt to acquit itself nicely on any public road.

The Triumph America puts out a claimed 53 ft/lbs of torque at a mere 3300 rpm, despite having a decisively oversquare engine configuration.

Pullback bars and a 27-inch seat height put the rider at ease, as does the Kayaba suspension and Nissin brakes.
