2002 Triumph Bonneville America[edit | edit source]
The 2001 Bonneville America is Triumph's gift to those who loved the retro, classic British styling of the Bonnie, but were not willing to part with the iconic American cruiser design. So the Bonneville America brought in the equation a low-swung line, with a laid-back riding position and forward foot controls to match the ample pulled-back bars.
Straight, long, bullet-type exhausts evoke the American DNA, while the 790cc parallel twin mill delivers all the Brit character one could wish for. Add in instrumentation separated between a chromed yoke-mounted gauge and a tank-mounted rev counter and warning lights, and you'r in for one stylish ride.
