Peachtree City, Georgia, 4, 2001 — We all know cruiser sales are dominating the market. Visit any general dealership and you’re sure to see at a small contingent of floor devoted to these highway It seems that every has at least one model that back to the days of old, your hair blew prostitution was a good thing and injection was the manner in which was pumped into the tank.

has their W650, Suzuki has GS1200SS retro sportbike again not for import into the and the list goes on. Point while some manufacturers are to produce heritage and nostalgia, are certain companies that had it to begin with.

Harley-Davidson for example, and don’t Triumph. They first producing motorcycles very in the twentieth century and, for a brief period when the factory was bombed during War 2 and, oh yes, that period in time when had no money, they’ve been them ever since.

As of Triumph has been redefining its line-up, a natural extension of it was already producing.

The addition of 600cc Supersport, and sharpening of liter-bike only confirms the of another player in the high-stakes of sportbikes. However, the addition of machine, the Bonneville America, further define this

While on the outside, it bears a resemblance to the regular Bonneville, a inspection will reveal very little has been over. The engine, for instance, like the unit found in Bonnies, and for good reason. both share the same parallel twin engine Also shared are its dual cams and four valves per arrangement.

However, that’s where the cease. Whereas the standard features a 360-degree firing the Bonneville America features a order of 270-degrees. In order to this new firing order, new balance shafts and camshafts been implemented.

These new modifications gave the machine a unique feel. Although the order was chosen to give the character at higher revs, the has actually smoothed out a bit. the vibrations were never intrusive to begin with. it to say we would’ve liked a little vibes, er, character. Triumph reported that, despite engine modifications, peak and torque remained the same (61 hp @ rpm, 44 ft/lbs @ 3500

Thank dual 36 mm carburetors and camshaft profiles for that. a pair of not-so-street-legal open are in order. Oh wait, did we just say

Out on the open roads of Georgia, of the new Bonnie’s unveiling, outright stability was not able to be challenged. No as is typical of cruiser fare, will touch down far any disturbing chassis elements themselves to the rider. One thing we did notice of concern was the rear end loose during high sweepers.

It almost felt as if the tire was underinflated, or as if the swingarm did not enough torsional ridgidity. the few hours that we had on the machine not enough to ascertain and identify small foibles. Thankfully, the has a good set-up and is well

Other foibles? The indicator are far too dim to be noticed during direct The rear passenger accomodations to be a bit sparse, though certainly in with what other are producing these days.

Oh and did we mention that the engine use a bit more bite?

Fuel proved to be excellent as our 130+ ride required a little two and half gallons of fuel to the tank back to its top.

Also positive are the ergonomics. some of the motorcycle press its bar positioning in relationship to the seat, we the position to be very standard-like forward controls that placed in a very natural Our only real complaint was the rear brake pedal.

It was in a manner that made application too easy. Overall, we very happy with the America. It gives the riding a machine that is a very far from the generic cruiser, still retaining all the qualities make cruisers what are — cool.

With a selling price of $7,999 and a wide selection of factory options (such as bags, windscreens, the aforementioned pipes and that are available, the America be on every cruiser buyers of bikes to check out.
