Hi Vito, sorry I am coming into this one a little late but I had an America for a year before I traded up to the 1600 TBird and they are chalk and cheese. I am not a petrol head so the 1600 suits me fine but it still leaves the America standing still and the pick up from 100klms to say, 130klms is so good that you can't help but smile. My experience is that the bird also seems to handle better and feels somehow lighter in the front end and easier to steer.
I did 9,500klms on the America in 10 months and it was a great bike but I really wanted more power and a 6th gear for touring.
It is a very good bike, just get one!!
