Triumph recalls Trophy over brake issue

2017 Triumph Trophy SE

Triumph Australia has issued a recall over a potential brake failure in its 2013-2017 Trophy and Trophy SE models.

This brake recall is not linked to the forthcoming global recall over Brembo brakes.

This is a new issue involving incorrectly routed wires exiting the ignition switch may be damaged by contact with the front brake hose.

According to the official recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, “if the wires are damaged, motorcycle lighting may be lost unexpectedly or the engine may stall”.

This could increase the “risk of an accident or injury to the rider and other road users”.

Triumph Australia will attempt to advise Trophy owners to bring in their bikes for a free repair.

The vehicle identification numbers (VINs) of the 173 affected Trophy models are listed at the end of this article.

Even though manufacturers and importers contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle recalls as a service to all riders.

In Australia, recall notices are issued by the manufacturer and the Department of Infrastructure through a voluntary industry code under the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
