Built to be ridden, not just to look good. The America’s 865cc paralleltwin puts out a healthy 61PS with strong torque at low revs, peaking at 72Nm at just 3300rpm. Ideal for urban cruising at low revs but with enough muscle for serious long distances at motorway speeds, even with a passenger or luggage on board.
This vertical twin is a true original. Drawing on our heritage from fifties and sixties parallel twins and coupling that with modern technology and build standards, the engine in the America has a laidback riding character that’s unique to the cruiser world.
Straight away people notice the America’s unmistakably British style. Its pair of cylinders stand upright and proud and make a powerful statement. And, being aircooled there’s no radiator to spoil the view.
