From a cross-town hop to an intercontinental tour, the America LT will take you there in style. Based on the engine, chassis and legendary styling of our America, the LT adds a layer of touring capability and an enviable range of factory fitted extras designed to make those longer distances a breeze. All the while maintaining the traditional deep chrome and polished detailing demanded of a classic cruiser, of course.
Features May Include:
Striking machined fins pick out the distinctive parallel twin shape, while chrome engine covers are offset against jet-black barrels and crankcases. A pair of wide, dramatically splayed exhaust pipes dominate the LT’s front three-quarter profile with their classic ‘header-run’ following a straight line from the throttle bodies through to the headers. Our parallel twin heritage for all to see and admire.
Swept-back classic styling, characterised by details such as the dramatic slab top yoke, centre-mounted white-faced speedo, large single headlight, chrome tank console housing and filler cap, and hand-painted tank and mudguard coachlines.
Built to be ridden, not just to look good. The America’s 865cc parallel-twin puts out a healthy 61PS with strong torque at low revs, peaking at 72Nm at just 3300rpm.
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 air-cooled there’s no radiator to spoil the view.
With forks raked out at a shallow angle and feature polished shrouding and silver legs that match the chrome springs and covers of the laid-down, twin rear shocks.
Long, low and stable like a cruiser should be.
Everything about the America’s chassis is focussed on balance and we’ve matched each component carefully to maintain that steady, intuitive feel.
Never too sharp or intimidating, braking is looked after by single discs front and rear to provide plenty of stopping force, whilst maintaining the overall balance of the chassis so every moment of your ride is confident and controlled.
Wheels and tyres
The cast aluminium wheels are small in diameter. 16 and 15 inches front and rear and fitted with chunky, deep sidewall tyres for a classic cruiser look and a more comfortable cushioned ride.
A seat height of just 690mm makes the America easy to control when gliding through traffic or parking.
As a pure unadulterated cruiser, your riding position should be upright, laid back and spacious.
High-quality aluminium foot-boards and removable skid plates come with a classic heel/toe gear shift, positioning the rider’s feet for maximum comfort and control.
At the back, the America LT’s generous leather panniers are showerproof and come with metal buckles over durable, easy-to-use plastic clips.
The tall wind-shield deflects the worst of the weather and is easily detachable (via a pair of spring-loaded levers at each side of the screen) to achieve a completely alternative look.
Back rest - sissy bar
We added a pillion backrest to add all day comfort for your passenger too.
