Triumph spent a lot of time in the development of its America Cruiser to try and make it sound as much like a harley as possible.
The firm selected a specific firing order for the parallel twin engine that bucks the normal trend for that kind of cylinder layout, specifically so it could make the engine sound like a big American v-twin.
Check out the sounds of the two bikes below to see if you think they succeeded and get the June 20 edition of MCN for a roadtest of the Triumph America and and in-depth technical analysis of exactly how and why triumph went down this route.
