The Triumph America is a cruiser with real cred – it harks back to the Thunderbird and other Triumphs modified in the States in the 60s and 70s, and so is not regarded as just another Harley clone, as are many Japanese cruisers. The Triumph America is a pleasure to ride and is well put together. Design of the bike started in October 1998. A staggering 120 versions were drawn and shown to focus groups, before it was whittled down to 15. Finally, it was honed into the bike we see today: A fine looking motorcycle. The synthesis of bold cruiser styling, like the classic wide front forks, pullback handlebars, forward set foot pegs and slash cut exhaust pipes, works beautifully with Triumph trademarks such as the parallel twin motor, two tone tank and old-look tank badge. So, visually this bike is a winner, and in terms of handling and performance it is surprisingly good, but what it has which makes it stand out is the Triumph badge on the tank.
