Triumph Australia has issued a recall on its new Rocket 3 R, Rocket 3 GT and Rocket 3 TFC bikes launched just last year.
The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the issue involves air becoming trapped in the rear brake system.
“This may result in increased rear brake pedal travel before rear braking is experienced, increasing the risk of an accident resulting in injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users,” it says.
The vehicle identification numbers of the 355 bikes affected are listed at the end of this article. (With that many sold since launch in July, they are obviously a popular tourer!)
Owners of affected motorcycles will be asked to contact an Australian Triumph dealer to make an appointment to have repairs carried out, free of charge.
