Triumph’s Safety Recall Report

Triumph’s Part 573 Safety Recall Report to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says 988 motorcycles are potentially affected.

In its 573 Safety Recall Report, Triumph describes the cause of the recall as follows:

“ The production process of the left-hand rubber-based damper underwent an undisclosed change, resulting in parts that no longer conform to the required dimensional accuracy and specifications. Consequently, fitting this defective part to a vehicle provides a lower clamping load than required, which can eventually lead to the fixings being subjected to shear forces when the brake is applied. This can result in one or more fixings fracturing, leading to a loose or detached left-hand front & brake disc. No actual evidence of this has been recorded in service.”

Describing the potential safety risk, Triumph says:

“The improper securing of the left-hand brake disc may lead to its detachment from the front wheel assembly. The disc will be retained by the caliper body. This can cause a distraction and reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of an injury.”

The affected bikes were produced from May 24, 2022, through January 28, 2023. Below are the VINs of potentially affected bikes:
