5. Triumph America
Among Triumph’s classic collection, it’s easy to gravitate towards the iconic Bonneville considering its rich history. And while its 29.1-inch seat height is definitely kind towards the shorter rider, the Bonnie’s cousin, the America, is even lower. Measuring at 27.1 inches from the ground, the America’s two-inch advantage over the Bonnie could be just the ticket for a shorter rider looking to experience this British classic.
Both models share the same 865cc parallel-Twin engine, but the America places the foot controls forward of the rider, while the Bonnie rider’s feet are directly underneath them. No matter which model pulls at your heart strings, either choice is a good option for cruising from point A to point B in style.
