The America is just made for the open road. It feels planted and rides easy. For 2007 the jet-black, parallel twin motor has been cranked up to 865 cc to give the bike more torque. And more torque means fewer gear changes - just what is needed for relaxed cruising. The riding position puts the rider at the center of the universe with a low, sofa of a seat that lets feet be planted firmly on the ground when coming to a stop. The pillion gets a exceptionally comfortable riding experience too with a roomy seat.
Spinning a beefy, 170/80-section rear tire (crowning a new-for-2007 cast 15-inch rim) through a five-speed gearbox the engine fires its heartbeat out through a pair of deep-chrome reverse cone silencers. Heavy duty, wide set telescopic forks add substance and a solid look to the America’s raked front end, as does the new 18-inch cast front wheel, shod with its 110/90 tire. Disc brakes front and rear matched to twin-piston calipers take care of the stopping duties.
Cruising is all about the essence of freedom and individuality and the America provides both. It’s also ready to further personalize, with the simple addition of luggage and extra chrome work. There are also entire custom painted body kits to mark out a personal identity.
The need to ride and explore lies deep within the human soul. The open road beckons, waiting to be ridden and the America is a relaxed and enjoyable passport to two-wheeled freedom.
