Triumph Australia has urged owners of its 2021/22 Speed Triple RS and Speed Triple RR motorcycles to bring their bikes in for a brake check “as soon as possible”.
They have issued a recall notice for the bike blaming a “manufacturer defect”.
The notice says the brake disc may have been fitted incorrectly and “could become loose and interfere with other nearby components preventing the wheel from rotating freely”.
“This could reduce the expected braking performance,” the notice says.
“A reduction in braking performance could increase the risk of an accident causing injury or death to the rider and/or passenger, or other road users.”
Owners can contact their preferred authorised Triumph Motorcycles dealer to have the work carried out “as soon as possible”, free of charge
The vehicle identification numbers (VINs) of the 200 affected bikes are listed at the end of this article.
This is the first recall for Triumph this year after four last year when there were 46 safety recalls in total, the highest number monitored since 2009 and significantly more than the previous high of 37 in 2018.
